Farina is celebrity chairman to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington DC.

"No one can say the F-word like Dennis," gushes "Get Shorty" director Barry Sonnenfeld. . . . --Quoted from "Copper of Attitudes" by Rebecca Ascher-Walsh, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, October 27, 1995.

But his heart's desire, a Western, remains unfulfilled: "I did an episode of "Bonanza" (1995 TV film "Bonanza: Under Attack") once and met Ben Johnson. The first day I didn't bug him too much, but the second day I was asking questions about films by John Ford with John Wayne, Ward Bond. I tried not to make a pest of myself, but he was in my favorite Western, "The Wild Bunch", so I had to pick his brain about that." --From "Dennis Farina, Nose to Nose with Big-Name Stars" by Elizabeth Snead, USA TODAY, October 26, 1995.
