Ohio Officer Delays Patch Auction Due to Fellow Officer’s Death

September 07, 2006  | 

Due to the line-of-duty death of Cleveland Police Officer Jon Schroeder, Officer Scott Dillon’s auction of his safety service shoulder patch collection to benefit cancer research has been postponed one month to November 11.

A police officer and former firefighter/EMT, Dillon is attempting to set a Guinness World Record by amassing the largest collection of donated service patches from various police, fire, EMS, and security departments from around the world.

Dillon was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in May of 2003. As an officer with Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center and a former Veterans Affairs and Plain Township firefighter and EMT, he decided to raise funds for cancer research while also raising awareness of public safety’s dedication to the people they serve.

Dillon started his collection while in isolation battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma on September 11, 2003. This potential record-setting collection was to be auctioned off via E-Bay on 9/11 in 2005. Due to several health set-backs, Dillon decided to delay the auction until 9/11 this year.

Now, with the funeral of Officer Schroeder—a member of sister agency Cleveland Police Department—the auction is being delayed until November 11. Patches will be accepted until that time.

The proceeds from the patches’ sale will still be donated to the American Cancer Society and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of all police officers, firefighters, EMS personnel, and security officers.

To help Officer Dillon with his collection you can send your agency’s patch to:Officer Scott Dillon PO Box 292 Munroe Falls, OH 44262
