Joint Media Release by The Rochester Police Department, Office of the Chief and The Rochester Police Locust Club, Inc.

September 5, 2014

All members of the Rochester Police Department (RPD) are extremely grateful for the outpouring of compassion and support we have received following the tragic murder of RPD Officer Daryl Pierson. Officer Pierson leaves behind a wife, a 4-year-old son, and a 3-month-old daughter. We have received inquiries from many persons on how to send cards, letters, and expressions of sympathy and support. In order to ease the burden on Officer Pierson's family during this trying time, we are requesting that cards and letters be sent to the following address:

The Family of Officer Daryl Pierson
c/o The Rochester Police Locust Club, Inc.
1425 Lexington Avenue
Rochester, New York 14606

We have also received numerous inquiries from people who would like to make donations to Officer Pierson's family. In order to ensure that any donations are expeditiously received by Officer Pierson's family, RPD and the Locust Club recommend the following:

Arrangements have been made through the Locust Club to ensure that donations to these funds will be expeditiously received by Officer Pierson's family.

At this time, neither the Rochester Police Department nor the Locust Club has any affiliation with any other fund-raisers or fundraising mechanisms on behalf of Officer Pierson's family.


Scam Alert!

Residents of neighboring communities have reported getting calls from East Rochester Police officers soliciting funds for Daryl Pierson's family. The East Rochester Police Department is not involved in that, and it most certainly is a scam. Tell your friends and neighbors that there is no phone soliciting associated with the Pierson cause.

Deconversion Incentive

The Village of East Rochester has in effect a law which provides an incentive to owners of multi-family dwellings for converting those structures to single-family usage.

There are several multi-family dwellings in the Village, generally rental property, which were originally built as single-family homes. The goal of the Village Board is to incent as many property owners as possible to return these homes to their original single-family use. The results should have positive benefits to our greater community. Restoring those homes to single-family use results in a more valuable piece of property. Single-family homes in the Village continue to appreciate in value, in most cases, at a higher rate than multi-family properties.

Please see our Deconversion Incentive page for more information and documentaion.
