To honor PO Farley's memory, the Nassau Police Running Club elected to sponsor an annual 5-K Run in an effort to ensure that PO Farley would be remembered. The run was titled the PO Gary Farley Memorial 5-K Run.In 2011 the Nassau County Police Department tragically lost PO Michael Califano and PO Geoffrey Breitkopf both in the line of duty. The PO Gary Farley Memorial 5-K Run was renamed to the Nassau County Police Department Police Officer Memorial Run in order to honor PO Califano and PO Breitkopf. Tragically, since 2011 the Nassau County Police Department has lost five additional officers in the line of duty: PO Charles D. Cole, PO Joseph P. Olivieri Jr., PO Arthur Lopez, PO Peter Martino, Lt. Michael Shea, PO Luis A. Palermo, Jr., and PO Paul J. McCabe. To honor the memory of our fallen officers, the Nassau Police Running Club presents scholarships to High School students who participate in school running clubs. These scholarships are presented to students who are graduating from the High Schools that our fallen members attended.
