    On January 21, 2022, while answering a domestic violence call in the confines of the 32nd Precinct, NYPD Police Officers Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora were ambushed by a perpetrator who shot both Officers. P.O. Rivera, age 22, died on January 21, and P.O. Mora, age 27, died four days later, on January 25th.

    The deaths of these two young, intrepid Officers shocked the City of New York and the entire nation, which is grappling with a rise in mindless gun violence and death.

    On Friday, January 28, 2022, P.O. Rivera was posthumously promoted to First Grade Detective, and on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, P.O. Mora was posthumously promoted to First Grade Detective.

    The DEA Widows’ and Children’s Fund, a registered 501(c)(3) charity, is now collecting funds for the families of both of these young, brave men. All donations are fully tax deductible. The DEA is proud to assist the families of these courageous Officers who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving the citizens of New York. It is our union’s great honor and responsibility to represent the memories of these Officers and we will do everything we can to support and honor their legacy and their families. Any funds you wish to donate will be greatly appreciated and we thank you.

Please include in the check notation the mention that your donation is slated for the Rivera and/or Mora families. Mail all checks or money orders to the DEA Widows’ and Children’s Fund, 26 Thomas Street, New York, NY 10007.
