Description

Retired Detective Jeff wanted to do a daily  push-up challenge to raise money for a national agency that provides services to law enforcement families in need. When he discovered there was no such organization, he started one called the Cover Now Fund. The Small Town Dicks team sits down with friend and actor Kevin Pollak, who is on the board of Cover Now and its founder, Det. Jeff, to discuss their work in providing outreach to first responders in need.

Kevin Pollak is an award winning actor, writer, director, and comedian who has appeared in over 85  films.  He’s starred in blockbusters such as “A Few Good Men,” “The Usual Suspects,” and "Casino.”  He currently co-stars on the hit comedy, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and was voted among the Top 100 Comedians of all time by Comedy Central. Kevin has been involved with philanthropic causes for several years including “Big Slick” who work with and raise money for Children’s Mercy Hospital for children’s cancer treatment and research. Kevin loves, respects, and has compassion for our nation’s law enforcement and brings his knowledge of media, marketing, and influence to the board of directors of Cover Now.
 

Jeff Stine is the president and CEO of Cover Now (Law Enforcement Emergency Fund.) Jeff began his career in law enforcement in 1995 and worked in the patrol division for th El Cajon Police Department in San Diego County, California. His jurisdiction was economically and racially diverse and had a high crime rate which allowed Jeff to better understand the pressures law enforcement officers face. When Jeff medically retired he earned a degree in theology and founded to separate companies which became successful.  He then decided to start Cover Now. Jeff has a family, a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and enjoys the mental and physical demands of ultra running.

Wow, I almost skipped this one because there was no story, but that would have been a huge mistake. This episode told an incredible story. A very sad, incredible story.
