(MINEOLA, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé (D - Freeport) 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 domestic-incident call in Harlem.
“Our hearts remain heavy as we continue to mourn the incredibly tragic and senseless killings of Officer Rivera and Officer Mora of the NYPD,” Legislator Mulé said. “My prayers are with their families and loved ones at this time. May their service and sacrifice never be forgotten.”
