ical to succeeding in the Iron Man Challenge event; and

Shaun DiMino captured first place in the Donald Kieffer Memorial Iron
Man Challenge held at the annual Erie County Tactical Task Force SWAT

WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication and accomplishment
which Town of Lancaster Police Department Officer Shaun DiMino has
demonstrated in capturing first place in the Donald Kieffer Memorial
Iron Man Challenge held at the annual Erie County Tactical Task Force
SWAT Competition; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that those dedicated
public servants who unselfishly devote their lives to the preservation
of order and the protection of others are worthy and due full praise for
their commitment and noble endeavors; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
