Shanahan Law Group, PLLC sponsored the 4th Annual Matty-Brenner Memorial Golf Tournament, which benefits the Correctional Peace Officers Foundation. The tournament took place on Oct.18 at The Revival in the Crescent Golf Club in Salisbury, North Carolina. The tournament is dedicated to the memory of probation officers Jim Matty and Richard “Rick” Brenner, who were employees of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety. 

“Correctional officers play a critically important and often under-recognized role in our justice system,” said former federal prosecutor Kieran J. Shanahan, founder of Shanahan Law Group. “Our firm is proud to sponsor this event  to support the families of correctional officers who lost their lives in the line of duty.”

The Correctional Peace Officers (CPO) Foundation is a national, non-profit charitable organization created in 1984. Its primary function is to preserve and support the surviving families of correctional officers who lose their lives in pursuit of their chosen profession of protecting the public from those remanded to correctional custody and supervision in the nation’s prisons and jails.
