Officer Justin Siek Recovery Fund

The Tobacco Road Chapter of the North Carolina Police Benevolent Association and the Police Benevolent Foundation are asking for financial support for Officer Justin Siek of the Durham Police Department.

In June of this year, Officer Siek was diagnosed with a rare cancer called stage II Oral Squamous Carcinoma. Officer Siek immediately underwent emergency partial Glossectomy surgery at UNC Rex to remove a tumor with a neck dissection to remove pre-cancerous lymph nodes. The surgery was initially a success.

However, only a few short months afterward, his cancer returned twice as strong. In September, Officer Siek underwent another similar surgery at Duke to remove a stage IV tumor located approximately on the base of his tongue and another dissection to remove lymph nodes. Officer Siek is currently undergoing intense radiation and chemotherapy treatments at the Duke Cancer Center in Durham.

Officer Justin Siek has been a seven-year law enforcement veteran since 2015, when he began working for the Raleigh Police Department. He later transferred to the Durham Police Department.

During his career, he has been the recipient of an Officer of the Year and Life Saving Award.

Officer Siek is married to his wife Kara, and they recently welcomed a baby boy, Joseph Justin, into their family. They also have three other children.

Detective Johnny Bohanan Memorial Fund

The Southern States Police Benevolent Association and the Police Benevolent Foundation are deeply saddened about the passing of Detective Johnny Bohanan of the Sevier County Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee. Johnny had recently been diagnosed with stomach cancer, and the SSPBA and PBF set up a recovery fund to address the financial needs that went with his diagnosis and treatment.

Johnny lived his entire life in Sevier County and began his full-time law enforcement career in 1990. In addition to serving the public, Johnny was a valued and respected PBA leader, giving of his time and talents in various roles to help officers. He served as the President of the Smoky Mountains Chapter and as the Tennessee Division President. He was also a Southern States PBA Board member.

Johnny was an avid sports enthusiast and coached and umpired Little League baseball and softball in Sevierville and Pigeon Forge for many years. He also enjoyed supporting his son’s athletic pursuits through the years.

Johnny is survived by his wife Phillis and their three children: Holly, Tray, and Andrew.

The SSPBA and the PBF are asking for continued financial support.
