Officer Josh Turner to be recognizedPosted Thu, Feb 28 at 06:26pm
During the October 3rd fundraiser McDonald's fundraising event posted, a local area police officer and a cruiser will be on site at each McDonald’s from 4 to 7 p.m. The officers will meet and greet families and children in addition to providing educational tips and information to customers.
McDonald’s will also recognize several officers throughout the state who go above and beyond in the line of duty as well as those officers who are highly invested in our community.
Since the death of Officer Stephen Arkell, Officer Turner has spearheaded fundraising efforts for the Officer Stephen Arkell Memorial 5K. This event alone has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for scholarships that are to be awarded to Exeter High School seniors in the name of Officer Stephen Arkell. Officer Turner puts in hundreds of hours of his personal time to make sure the Officer Stephen Arkell Memorial 5K runs smoothly; every year it does. He also ran a successful Christmas tree fundraiser for this cause as well. We are extremely proud of you Josh! A job well-done and an honor that you deserve!
