Carson Named Spokesperson for Slain Officers

Jeff Carson has been named national spokesman for NASO, the National Association of Slain Officers, a non-profit organization created in 1998 to provide support and encouragement for the immediate family members of slain police officers. “It’s no secret my collection of police badges is my prized possession,” Carson said in a statement, “and I’ve been thrilled with the opportunity to do a batch of ’ride alongs’ with officer friends around the country. The opportunity to work with NASO is a source of tremendous pride to me.” Carson will record a series of radio public service announcements for national distribution and will perform at a Nov. 17 fundraiser for NASO in Portland, Ore. 10/9/01
