The National Law Enforcement And Firefighters Children's Foundation Hosts 2nd Annual Hero Awards Gala

Emanuele A. Conti, Ceo Kroll, Inc. And William J. Bratton, Police Commissioner, City Of New York Will Be Honored

NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Law Enforcement and Firefighters Children's Foundation (NLEAFCF) will host its second annual Hero Awards Gala on Monday, September 29, 2014 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City, with cocktails at 6PM followed by dinner and an awards ceremony.

The NLEAFCF will present the Corporate Hero Award to Emanuele A. Conti, CEO Kroll, Inc. and the Public Service Hero Award to William J. Bratton, Police Commissioner, City of New York.  These awards are designed to honor distinguished individuals and corporations whose work and passion support the efforts of our nation's first responders.  Proceeds from the event help to underwrite NLEAFCF's ongoing scholarship and grant programs.

Created in the aftermath of "9/11" by Founder and President Alfred Kahn, the NLEAFCF serves the long-term needs of children and families nationwide affected by a line of duty death or permanent disability. "We established this Foundation with the mission of helping the heroes of tomorrow – the children of the brave firefighters and law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf," said Kahn, who is also the Chairman & CEO of CraneKahn LLC.

"This event raises funds to provide our heroes' children needed financial resources for basic life expenses and college costs. The NLEAFCF demonstrates in a concrete and caring fashion that these families are not forgotten after the initial attention to their tragic loss has subsided.  We invite all who wish to support these families to join us at the gala and put into action what I am sure resides in your heart," said Kahn.

Emanuele "Manny" A. Conti is Chief Executive Officer of Kroll, Inc., a leading global provider in risk mitigation and response, delivering a wide range of solutions that span investigations, due diligence, compliance, and security. Kroll has a long history of working closely with the law enforcement community in regard to cyber security, anti-bribery and corruption, threat analysis and risk management efforts.

William J. Bratton is the City of New York's 42nd Police Commissioner. During his tenure with police departments in Boston, Los Angeles and New York he brought crime to historically low levels, created pioneering policing programs and accountability systems and distinguished himself as an innovator and national and international leader in the law enforcement arena.

Our uniformed heroes, in addition to Corporate Hero, Mr. Conti and Public Service Hero, Commissioner Bratton will be recognized for their service and sacrifice. All proceeds from the Hero Awards Gala will fund the ongoing scholarship and grant programs. Sponsors of the event also underwrite tables for first responders to attend the Gala as honored guests.

The National Law Enforcement and Firefighters Children's Foundation (NLEAFCF) is dedicated to helping the children of law enforcement officers and firefighters lost or permanently disabled in the line of duty.  When the ultimate sacrifice has been made by a first responder, the Foundation believes it is our responsibility as a society to ensure that their children achieve their full potential as active citizens and thriving members of the community. Through grants, college scholarships and family-friendly events, the NLEAFCF serves the needs of these children across the country regardless of how long ago or how recent their loss.  The Foundation's long-term commitment is a promise to the people who defend and protect us, a major investment in our nation's future and in tomorrow's heroes.
