ITEM 7: Emergency Needs Fund -  Presentation by Officer Rick Zoerb with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg  (North Carolina) Police Department regarding an emergency needs fund started in his community to help those in need. Zoerb started a fund, managed by the police department and funded through private donations, to provide assistance to people officers come across in the course of their shifts who need assistance. Zoerb said they might be travelers through the area in need of gasoline or lodging for the night, they might be victims of domestic violence, they might be  single-parent families who need help.  Prior to this fund, officers were helping out of their own pockets and this fund enables them to provide the help needed without officer expense.  Presentation only.
