8th Annual Hockey Classic

Registration is now open for the 8th Annual Kingston Police hockey Classic. It will be held at The Bog Ice Arena in Kingston 4/3/20-4/5/20. Cost of the tournament is $1250 per team. As in past years there will also be nightly entertainment at the Tavern on the Wharf in Plymouth. Proceeds from the 8th Annual Classic will be donated to the Violently Injured Police Officers Organization (V.I.P.O).

THEIR MISSION

Provide peer support to law enforcement officers who have been seriously injured or have had to use deadly force in the line of duty. We provide support, information, and resources to these officers and their families in any way possible, to assist them in transitioning after suffering these physical and emotional injuries.

Share our collective knowledge with our fellow police officers, so they have the tools they need for their road to recovery. It is our goal to provide this support and experience, especially to assist police departments throughout New England in establishing the proper policies, procedures, and protocols for line of duty deaths and serious bodily injuries.

Bring change to existing laws by working with law makers to pass legislation that will provide benefits to law enforcement officers who are injured in the line of duty and forced to retire.
