Department News – Ten members of the Lacey Township Police Department participated in the 2016 Police Unity Tour to Washington, D.C. over the past week to honor fallen police officers. They joined more than 1,900 bicycle riders (officers) in the coordinated trip from New Jersey to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in our nation’s capital. The officers made the journey to honor the more than 20,000 officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. This year’s services included the addition of John ‘Scott’ Stevens (Lacey Township) to the memorial wall. Detective Stevens served with the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office and lost his life tragically on Dover Road in Lacey Township in January of 2015. The special week culminated in a candle light vigil on Friday night (5/13/16).
The Lacey Township Police Department officers who made the trip included: Officer John McKee, Officer Charles May, Officer Adam Ewart, Officer Joseph Soto (ret.), Detective Brian Flynn, Officer Brian Holt, Sergeant Robert Flynn, and Detective Alan Abrecht (pictured above) with support services provided by Officer Jeffrey Slota and Detective Robert Surtees.
