(MINEOLA, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D - Glen Cove) joined Nassau County’s law enforcement leadership and her colleagues in government on Wednesday, Feb. 2 for a dome lighting ceremony honoring the life of fallen NYPD Officer Wilbert Mora. The somber observance was held hours after Officer Mora was laid to rest. Officer Mora and fellow NYPD officer Jason Rivera were fatally shot on Jan. 21 after being ambushed during a response to a domestic incident call in Harlem. 

“Please keep the families of Officer Wilbert Mora and Officer Jason Rivera in your prayers as they continue to grieve this incomprehensible tragedy,” Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton said. “I will always have gratitude in my heart for the courageous men and women of law enforcement who put themselves in harm's way daily to serve and protect others. May we never forget their selfless, courageous service to the City of New York.”
