"I would like to wish all the best to Suffolk Police Officer Mark Collins who is recovering from being shot last night in Huntington Station. Officer Collins is a resident of North Bellmore and a Fire Commissioner for the North Bellmore Fire Department. Officer Collins is being treated at Stony Brook University Hospital and, thankfully, is expected to survive. I join with all the members of the North Bellmore community to wish him a speedy recovery.
God bless Officer Collins and all the men and women who wear blue and put their life on the line by protecting ours every day."
