Former Chief John Letteney, Apex Police Department

The Apex Police Department is honored to have been selected by Chaney’s family to be a part of the “Chaney’s Champion” program.  Sadly, his life was short, but it was meaningful, as he blessed his family, and now so many other children, through the efforts of Chaney’s Champions.  Among many other attributes, Chaney was known for his smile, and it is that smile that continues on in the faces of the children facing a traumatic situation when they receive a Chaney’s Bear from a first responder.  Those smiles are the “evidence” that Chaney’s memory, and his legacy, lives on as Chaney’s Champions provide comfort to children in distress.
