More than 30 members of Long Island’s Newbold family, led by Aileen Newbold, detective with the Nassau Police Department Special Victims Squad, plus friends from the 4th Precinct of the Nassau Police Department, recently gathered in Eisenhower Park to raise money in the “One Too Many” 5K, a virtual event that Newbold and her family decided to make into an in-person one.
Altogether, the family raised $1,000 to benefit The Safe Center, a nonprofit, the leading victim service organization in Nassau County. The entire virtual event raised more than $6,000.
“We always do these walks as a family, we do the Avon breast cancer walk every October and the Arthritis Foundation walk every December to honor family members” Newbold said. “So when the opportunity came about to help The Safe Center and the work they do with victims of child abuse and domestic violence, it’s a win for us all.”

The entire family wore blue, the color ribbon which symbolizes solidarity with victims of child abuse and decorated their outfits with emblems from the Nassau Police Department, New York City Fire Department (Newbold’s husband is with the FDNY) and walked the route they plotted themselves around Field 4.
“This is an important cause for me because it’s what I do,” Newbold said. “We’re helping people by raising money which is used to support these families in times of crisis, and then I get to go back to work and continue to assist them by providing closure and justice by locking up the bad guys. Helping families is what we do at SVS.”

In the past year, The Safe Center has responded to 6,195 hotline calls and assisted 3,819 survivors impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and child sexual and severe physical abuse. More than 27,000 people attended educational trainings raising awareness on how to recognize, responded to and prevented future incidents of abuse.
“We greatly appreciate the dedication of Detective Newbold, her family, and everyone who participated in the walk,” Safe Center Executive Director Cindy Scott said. “Our partnership with the Nassau County Police Department is an invaluable tool in assisting victims of domestic violence, child abuse and many other forms of violence find the support and resources they need to escape their tormentors and start new lives.”
