This past weekend, fallen officer, Michael Chesna of the Weymouth Police Department, was killed in the line of duty. It was a horrible and tragic incident where he responded to an erratic driver that crashed, turned into a foot chase, and then resulted in his own death when the 20 year old suspect hit the officer with a rock, stole his gun, and used it against him.
Police now warn against possible scams that might and have ensued. They say the scams come in the form of telephone calls asking for donations for the family of the fallen officer. The thought of people scamming in such a way is disgusting and sad but true. There are those people out there and police are warning against them.
There is only one fund that was officially set up for the fallen officer and that is from Equitable Bank. It is called the "Officer Michael Chesna Family Fund" so that people are aware. You can donate straight to the fund through the bank or send your donation to the Weymouth Police Department by mailing it to their address: 140 Winter Street, Weymouth, 02188. & you can call the Weymouth Police Department through their non-emergency line at (781)335-1212 if you want to find out more ways to help.
In addition to the official bank fund, some other creditable organizations are donating some if not all of their proceeds to officer Chesna's family. One company in particular, Barstool Sports, made T-shirts in honor of the fallen officer.
Barstool is donating 100% of the T-shirt proceeds to the Chesna family. You can go to their website directly, order your T-Shirt and know that your money will help the Chesna family in their time of need. Visit the website, HERE
