PHOTOS: Chief Heavey Gets Dunked at 2nd Annual Thank a Cop Day at Joey B’s

Chief Heavey surprised everyone by volunteering to be the dunkee at the second annual Thank A Cop Day at Dom Delfino’s Joey B’s restaurant in Cos Cob.

The funds raised will go to the Chief’s Scholarship Fund, which was started by the chief in the 1960s to benefit police officers’ children.

Chief Heavey said that last year scholarships were given to 26 students, and at least 20 a year on average.
