Respect for Law
Optimist Clubs participate in activities to inspire respect for law enforcement among young people and to educate them on the jobs these brave men and women perform.
Another great tradition of the Windcrest Optimist Club is our May “Respect For Law” meeting where an individual or group of individuals is recognized with the John Paul Memorial Respect For Law Award. This award is given in honor of Lt. John Frisco a former Windcrest Officer who was killed in the line of duty in 1985. The Windcrest Optimist Club initiated this award in 1986 in his memory to annually honor significant contributions to law enforcement. One of Optimist International principal tenants is to “inspire respect for law”.
