Clisham Benefit

An Officer's family needs a hand:
  • In 2003 Paul was diagnosed with colon cancer and aggressive measures were taken to fight this cancer. Paul went on and off of the medical as he went through chemotherapy and other treatments. While this was going on, Paul and his wife Catherine were learning that their young daughter Tori had AUTISM. Paul believed that he was going to beat cancer, but on September 16th, Paul lost his battle.
  • Paul was an exceptional husband, police officer, father, and friend. As friends of his, and fellow police officers, we believed we needed to do something to help his family. The Tori Clisham Foundation has been established so that we can provide some financial security for Catherine and Tori.
  • A benefit party will also be held at Bourbon Street on June 1st, 2008. Information about the benefit and the Tori Clisham Foundation can be found at Donations of any kind for the silent auction are being accepted and tickets are now being sold for the benefit as well as raffles.
Detective Joseph Bowes is one of the go-to guys for the benefit and can be reached at Area 2. Click the link at for specifics.

Paul was a great guy and an excellent cop. I can't remember seeing him without a smile on his face.

Yes it is. Joe has recently returned from the Amazon River Basin where he met with members of the Jivaro Clan who shrunk his head to a manageable size 7 1/4. Much pressure has been reduced in his cranial area and he feels and looks better.

Paul was a great person and cop. When he was going through all his treatments he ALWAYS took time to ask how you were doing. He never asked for anything except to be treated like a cop. I will always remember his smile and the way he made everyone feel better. His strength, dedication, and courage were an inspiration to us all. I am sure he is still watching over all of us. Thanks Paul
