He explained that he was wearing a bracelet in memory of Dragan from April to June, during training and competition at the World Police and Fire Games Virginia.
“Now I would like you to deliver the bracelet to the family of the murdered police officer, and the medallions to the wounded policemen. This is a small thing, but I want you to know that you have support from around the world, as law and order keepers,” Malast noted in the letter.
Chief of the Zvornik Public Safety Station, Stanimir Vidovic, said that they were surprised by a letter from the States but also were glad about it.
“A colleague from Arizona sent us a letter of support in combat terrorism, medallions to colleagues who were injured in the terrorist act, and the bracelet to the family of murdered policeman which he carried in memory of the murder police officer,” said Vidovic.
He added that the support gesture by the American policeman is a proof that the people world-wide condemn this act of terrorism and combat it.
