Detective Mario Valkov

"We at the Bulgarian American Police Association (B.A.P.A.) are truly fortunate to have such a supportive community. You all have stood by us during our most difficult times and have reached out to embrace us and support us during those times. This appreciation does not go unnoticed. We are extremely grateful for the compassion and support we receive from people and businesses every day.

It is not a news story when our police officers, deputy sheriffs, state troopers and federal agents save a life, rescue a family, or stop a crime in progress. It is just another day on the job. Yet, no matter the circumstances, our B.A.P.A. members serve tirelessly, selflessly, and heroically. They do it because they strongly believe in doing their duty and doing it properly.

I ask that if you see a law enforcement officer during your everyday life, please take a moment to thank them. These men and women leave their own families each morning, afternoon or evening and selflessly put their own lives on the line to serve and protect their communities.

B.A.P.A. is committed to the safety of our community and we take pride in serving you!"
