Marc Bell, founder of the Boca Raton Police Foundation, informed the Board of Trustees of his intention to step down as Chair and retire from serving on the Board of Trustees. Mr. Bell stated the following in a written letter to the Board:

“The mission of public safety is one I’m passionate about, and I am so proud of all we have accomplished in the past ten years since I founded the Foundation.  As a result of our efforts, the police department now has 74 new pieces of equipment, technology, and training materials and enjoyed valuable community outreach activities. I have no doubt that the board will continue these successes in the future.”

Marc went on to thank Chief Michele Miuccio and her command staff for their hard work and dedication to serving and protecting our community and Debbie Levine, Executive Director, for her leadership and dedication in helping the Foundation grow.

The Board of Trustees thanked Marc for his vision, which will leave a long-lasting legacy on our community’s public safety. In recognition, the board voted to confer Marc with the title of Chairman Emeritus.

The Board of Trustees elected Nicole Flier and Alan Rose as Co-Chairs.  Additional executive committee members are Secretary Jeff Hollander and Treasurer Craig Ehrnst.

“I am grateful for the title of Chairman Emeritus. I intend to continue to support the Foundation and be an ambassador in the community. I extend my congratulations to the newly elected Co-Chairs, Nicole Flier, and Alan Rose, as well as the board and future trustees. I wish you all the best in leading the organization,” added Marc.

The Foundation will hold an event later this year to honor Marc Bell.
