PLYMOUTH TOWNSHIP, Pa (CBS) – A small contingent of officers from the Plymouth Township police department is delivering an Easter meal today to the family of murdered officer Brad Fox as part of an effort to brighten the holiday just a bit for the families who lost loved ones in the line of duty.
This is the 19th time that police officers from throughout the Delaware Valley got on their motorcycles and delivered Easter dinners to the families of police officers killed or seriously injured in the line of duty.
For the first time, it’s touched a Montgomery County family.
One of those meals will be given to Lindsay Fox. She is the widow of Brad Fox and she just delivered their second child.
Plymouth police Chief Joe Lawrence says, “ It touches them. They know they’re not forgotten. They know that we care about them, not just the police departments and the officers but the community cares about them.”
The effort is put together by the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 and local attorney Jimmy Binns.
They are joined by the city highway patrol motorcycle drill team and dozens of uniformed motorcycle cops from throughout the tri-state area.
