Union County Sheriff Thanks Connor’s Crew for Donation of K9 Lighting

The Union County Sheriff Peter Corvelli would like to thank Don Szymanski and Connor’s Crew for their generous donation of the Sheriff’s Office’s newest K9-in-training, Lightning.

Lightning was purchased on 9/11/2020 for training and assignment as an explosive detection canine for his partner, Officer Sarah Green.

“Many thanks to Don Szymanski and Connor’s Crew for donating Lightning to our office,” Sheriff Corvelli said. “We welcome the newest member to our family.

“Lightning working with Officer Green will be a valuable asset to our agency and the entire community,” the Sheriff added.

Connor’s Crew is a charitable organization founded in early 2019 by Don Szymanski and his family following the untimely passing of his grandson Connor James Nemes, due to complications from a rare brain rupture. 

In addition to assisting the Union County Sheriff’s Office, Connor’s Crew continuously supports various veterans, families and organizations.
