*****Spotlight*****

This week’s “Spotlight” is Officer Andrew Tziarris-Over ( #271). Officer Tziarris-Over is another one of our most recent graduates from the Cape May County Police Academy. He will begin his FTO (Field Training Officer) training shortly and will then be assigned to LTPD’s Patrol Division. Officer Tziarris-Over grew up in Lawrence Twp. and graduated from LHS. While at LHS he played lacrosse and ran cross country track. Prior to joining us at LTPD, he worked as a lifeguard, a landscaper and was also a SLEO (Special Law Enforcement Officer) Class I.

Officer Tziarris-Over still enjoys playing Lacrosse and plays golf too. Regarding this he said, “I enjoy golfing, but I may be the worst golfer in Mercer County.” Not true Officer Tziarris-Over. We know a few of your peers at LTPD that are worse! 🤣 Officer Tziarris-Over also said that he is also a “Die hard” NY Giants fan. “Thick or thin,” he added.

Officer Tziarris-Over said “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones” are his “all-time favorite” shows. He enjoys reading books on history, specifically American History. He added, “I enjoy learning about where we came from. In fact, I recently read ‘D-Day’ by Steven Ambrose.” His favorite foods are steak, medium rare, anything on the grill and pizza. Officer Tziarris-Over is also bilingual. He speaks English and Greek!

When we asked him about his goals and experiences so far at LTPD he said, “I hope to be an Officer who continues learn and improve myself in order serve Lawrence Township to the best of my ability. I want to be a part of what makes our community great.” He also said, “Being welcomed into the LTPD family has been GREAT. Everyone is very helpful and willing to teach. The academy has been a huge challenge, but it has helped prepare me for a career in law enforcement.”

Καλώς ήρθατε στην ομάδα! (we think that means “Welcome to the team!” 😉). We are looking forward to seeing where your career takes you!

*****Officer Spotlight*****

This week’s spotlight is another one of our newest Officers, Enosh Brobbey ( #272). Officer Brobbey is going to be graduating from the Cape May County Police Academy next week. (Congrats Officer Brobbey!) Officer Brobbey was born in Ghana, West Africa. He emigrated to the United States about 10 years ago with his family. He is married and has one daughter.

Officer Brobbey attended Mercer County Community College where he studied Criminal Justice. He is currently enrolled at Rider University where he is pursuing a further degree in Criminal Justice.

He also managed Popeyes Chicken at QBM and spent time as a “Carpenters Helper” at Princeton University.

Officer Brobbey enjoys working out and playing soccer. In fact, he is a fan of Barcelona FC (Football Club) and Inter Miami FC. He said he is a Miami FC soccer fan because of Lionel Messi. That’s a good reason 👍! He also enjoys reading anything by Robert Green. I.E.: “The 48 Laws of Power,” “Mastery” and “The Laws of Human Nature.” Officer Brobbey’s favorite food is “Ghana Jollof” (a West African rice dish).

When we asked Officer Brobbey about the job so far, and his goals he said, “I hope to earn the respect of my fellow officers AND of this great town.” With regards to where he saw himself in 10 years’ time he said, “I would still be here, but I hope to attain greater heights.” He added, “Everyone on the job is very helpful and eager to assist me. They always point me in the right direction.”

Officer Brobbey, welcome to the team. We are honored that you chose to be police officer in our community. (PS the Jollof looks really good…thank you Google!)

*****Holiday Greetings!!*****

On behalf of Chief Longo and the Lawrence Twp. Police Department....HAPPY NEW YEAR! As we begin our 100th year we are looking forward to good tidings for our entire community! 🥳🎉

12/31/2023

*****Memories and a Year in Review*****

The phrase “Auld Lang Syne” (and the song) is a Scottish Gaelic phrase which means “Times Long Past.” While it has become the “theme song” for a New Year, it takes on a new and special meaning for us at LTPD. 2023 was our 99th year of service to the Lawrence Twp. Community! Times have certainly changed and may be considered "long past" since 1924. We like to believe that each year has been better than the last.

Looking back on 2023, we tried to improve our usual programs and events (like Trunk-or-Treat, Egg Hunt, National Night Out, etc.), but we also instituted some new events and programs. To name a just a few; Operation Blue Angel, new social media programs like our “Spotlights,” Coffee... not just with a Cop…but with the Chief, and several other community events like our Open House. All of the programs, old and new, were a success because of one thing, partnership. We LITERALLY could not have done it without you. Thank you for that!

We frequently refer to “our community” in our posts, but that phrase is not limited to the geography of the township. Our community stretches far beyond the lines on a map and it is our pleasure serving our ENTIRE community. We truly consider ourselves fortunate to have such wonderful support and appreciation for what we do.

There may be a time when 2023 is considered a “time long past,” but for now, we are looking forward to continuing our legacy in 2024. Making each year better than the last.

Here are just a few of our memories of 2023. Enjoy the video and……..

On behalf of Chief Longo and the entire Lawrence Twp. Police Department, HAPPY NEW YEAR LAWRENCE TWP.!

*Homage and Tribute*

It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of one of our retired K9’s. “Ty” was a member of the Lawrence Township Police Department from 2015-2020. He graduated from the New Jersey State Police K-9 Academy and served as a patrol and explosive detection K9. He was also a member of the “New Jersey State Police Task and Render Safe Force.” Throughout his years, he had criminal apprehensions throughout Mercer County. He retired in 2020.

Ty was loved by his best friend, partner and handler Officer Ron Buchanan (retired) as well as Officer Buchanan’s family. Ty was steadfast, faithful, diligent and absolutely loyal to Officer Buchanan and the job.

Officer Buchanan, on behalf of the rest of Ty’s family at LTPD, we are sorry for your loss. He will be dearly missed.

"A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his."

As the celebration of Kwanzaa begins, we at the Lawrence Twp. Police Department wish all of our friends, family, supporters and the ENTIRE Lawrence Twp. community, a happy and healthy holiday!

*****Officer Spotlight*****

This week’s Spotlight is Officer Steve Austin ( # 243), Lawrence Twp.’s School Resource Officer (SRO). Officer Austin was born in Baltimore MD and grew up in Midlothian Virginia. He graduated from James River HS in 2000 and then from Christopher Newport University with a degree in Communications. Recently, he graduated from Thomas Edison University with a master’s degree in Homeland Security! He spent ten years (active duty) in the US Army and was deployed to Iraq as part of “Operation Iraqi Freedom.” He was also deployed on a tour of duty to South Korea. Currently, he is a Lt. Colonel in the US Army National Guard. That is an extensive background Colonel. Thank you for your service!

Officer Austin is a fan of the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens. He said he bleeds “orange and purple.” He said he also enjoys running (especially on the beach) and spending time with his family. Officer Austin likes “pickle ball” and cooking. With regards to his cooking he said, “My wife wants me to take cooking classes because spaghetti and tacos are getting old” 🤣 He is also a fan of WWE’s “Stone Cold Steve Austin.” Figures…😆but for our older fans I’ll ask, what about the “Six-Million-Dollar Man?” He was “Steve Austin” too, and a Colonel as well! 😉

Officer Austin said he also enjoys watching “Yellowstone” and the nightly news. Officer Austin’s favorite food is “Soul Food.” He also said he reads but doesn’t really enjoy it. He feels that he needs to however. In fact, he quoted Dr. Seuss in this part of the interview saying, “The more you read, the more you shall know. The more that you learn, the more places you shall go.”

When we asked him about the job, he had a lot to say. He said he loves being an SRO but he would work anywhere Chief Longo felt he could best serve our community. His goal is to one day be a juvenile detective. Regarding this he said, “I am passionate about imparting my knowledge and life experience with young adults in the ‘Cardinal Nation.’”

We also asked him about the most memorable part of the job thus far. He said, “Being selected to be an SRO. This job is so rewarding to me. The exposure I have to the kids and them to me is the purest version of Community Policing.” Officer Austin also said he believes his presence and performance directly helps the students. He spoke about several students that told him his example and advice prevented them from getting into serious trouble.

Well done Colonel! Our community is lucky to have you as an example for our youth! Just like the National Guard motto, you are “Always Ready, Always There.”

Merry Christmas to all! From all of us at the Lawrence Twp. Police Department,  we wish you a happy and safe holiday wit...

*****Hey Lawrence Twp.!!*****

Yesterday, Chief Longo and Lt. Whitmore were invited to ECV’s (Every Child Valued) “Winter Celebration.” Chief Longo (and other special guests from Lawrence Twp.) were invited to the event because ECV wanted to honor Lawrence Twp.’s HEROS. It was a wonderful! ☺

We truly had such a great time! We enjoyed light refreshments, snacks, coffee and hot cocoa while the Chief and the Lt. shared their Lawrence Twp. stories with the children. We were also touched by the cards that the children made for us. ❤

Thank you ECV for inviting us and thank you for what you do! We are lucky to have partners like you within our community. You can expect to see us a lot more (especially if there’s more coffee and hot cocoa)! 😄

*****Hey Check This Out!!*****

Recently, Chief Longo presented a “Certificate of Appreciation” To members of “Viva Ballroom/Dance/Fitness. This certificate was presented to Jaroslaw Radzimierski, AKA MR. “J” (lead instructor), Wioletta Wyszynske (owner) and Julia Jakowiak (instructor) for their “Steadfast support and dedication to the Lawrence Twp. Police Department and members of our community.”

As an example, Mr. J and Julia spent weeks of their own time choreographing, practicing and even recruiting other volunteers for our “Trunk or Treat-Thriller-Flash mob-dance.” In case you missed it, you can check out the video below. It was terrific! Aside from the great comments of our community members, we were also contacted by several other agencies inquiring how it was done!

Thank you again Viva! We’ll have to figure out what we’re doing next year. 😊😊

Keep any eye out for future posts about people and places that give back to our community in their own special way!

*****Hey Check This Out!!*****

Earlier today, Chief Longo sponsored the first annual “Chief’s Holiday Breakfast” for our officers and members. The breakfast was a small gesture by the Chief to say, “Thank you” to the men and women of LTPD who help make our agency such a great success. It was also to recognize their day-to-day efforts and sacrifices, doing the job for our community.

The Chief said that he intends for the "Chief's Breakfast" to be a new tradition to show appreciation to the officers / employees that work to provide exceptional service to our community.

Thank you for this, Chief. As one of our officers said today, “This is great! It’s the little things that matter!”

“What gets recognized gets reinforced, and what gets reinforced gets repeated.”

*****Officer Spotlight*****

This weeks’ “Spotlight” is Sgt. Dylan McClister ( #229). Sgt. McClister grew up in Lawrence Twp. He graduated from Lawrence High School in 2009. In 2012, he began his career in Law Enforcement as a “Class I” Officer in Wildwood NJ. He then continued his employment with the Wildwood Police Department and became a “Class II” Officer in 2013. He also worked as a Class II Officer for the Evesham Police Department just before he joined us in the Lawrence Twp. Police Department in 2014.

Sgt. McClister likes being outdoors to relax. He frequents the beach and enjoys bonfires (at the same time when possible). He also said, “More than anything, I like spending time with friends and family.” He also enjoys watching sports. His favorite teams are the Dallas Cowboys, the NJ Devils and the Philadelphia Phillies (that’s quite a spread 👍).

We asked Sgt, McClister if he enjoyed watching any tv shows/movies or if he had any favorite authors. He said, “I don’t really have much time for that. When I do watch TV, its usually to catch a baseball, hockey or football game. When I read, it’s usually something that Larry Holtz published.” (Larry Holtz is a prominent police practice author).

We also asked Sgt. McClister if he had any memorable experiences while at LTPD and what his goals were. He said, “My most memorable experience on the job thus far has been working midnights in 2-person, plain clothes capacity. This was always enjoyable and productive.”

Regarding his goals he said, “My goals are to continue to serve the citizens of Lawrence Township and make a positive impact on the community while upholding the constitution. In the next ten years, I hope to see the department keep progressing to be known as one of the best."

Well Sarge, keep up the great work! We appreciate what you do for our agency.

****Hey Check This Out!!*****

Today, Cameron Doherty graduated from the Lawrence Twp. Police Department internship program. Cameron, who is a sophomore at Rutgers University, is studying political science and economics with the goal of becoming an attorney. The Rutgers University internship requires 120 consecutive hours during any given semester in order to qualify for credits. Cameron actually went beyond this requirement as he began volunteering his time to the Lawrence Twp. Police Department in August (before the semester began). Cameron completed the program while also attending classes full time at Rutgers.

During his program, Cameron was supervised by the Investigative Division Commander, Lieutenant Kevin Reading. He participated in our “ride-along” program where he received first-hand experience of the day-to-day procedures and challenges of being a police officer. He also went to the fi****ms range, where he learned about gun safety and proper fi****ms techniques.

The majority of Cameron’s time, however, was spent assisting the Lawrence Twp. Detective Bureau gathering crime statistics. The information gathered from Cameron’s finished reports was used to supplement our efforts to combat/correct some ongoing issues within the township. As an example, one of Cameron’s reports helped identify some of the re-occurring methods and characteristics offenders were using (known to police officers as “modus operandi” or “M.O.”).

Congratulations Cameron! We wish you the best of luck during your endeavors. Whatever type of Law you pursue (Criminal or Civil) we know you will do well!
