OnStar Honors Fallen Police Officers and Families
DETROIT – OnStar honored fallen police officers and their families on Sunday by donating $250,000 to the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP). OnStar President Linda Marshall presented FOP President Chuck Canterbury, with the donation at FOP’s 29th Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial held at the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
“At OnStar, we would not be where we are today without the good work and life-saving skills of first responders and other emergency services personnel,” Marshall said. “Our 15-year relationship with this community allows us to deliver the 24/7/365 industry leading-safety and security service that we offer to our customers.”
OnStar’s partnerships include organizations such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC). Their involvement ranges from providing specific vehicle crash data for research to helping train first responders on how to work with electric vehicles.
