Our Third Lobby Hero of the week is Jim Heaphy!
n nnJim is the very definition of a Lobby Hero! Jim gives and give and just when you think he can’t give any more, he does! Jim has kindly agreed to do pro bono consulting for us to make sure all our NYPD info is accurate AND he’s agreed to do a few after-show talkbacks with the audience for us. We are very grateful to have Jim as a member of our team!nnJim was in the police academy from July 1983 to December 1983 at the age of 20 years old.
