Chief Bokinski Remembers 9/11

Pella Police Shield [1]

While it’s been over a decade since 9/11, many people in Marion County still remember exactly where they were on that fateful day. Pella Police Chief Robert Bokinski, who grew up near, and has worked in Washington D.C., says the impact the day had on people, seems to depend on how close they were to the attacked areas. He adds that while he felt very strongly about the events that day while witnessing them from Maryland, people in the New York City, D.C. and rural Pennsylvania areas, were even more likely to lose loved ones, or be directly affected by the attack on our nation.
