Every November and December, officers of the Morris County Sheriff's Office: Bureau of Law Enforcement PBA Local #151, and Bureau of Corrections PBA Local #298 join forces to raise money to help a family in need during the holiday season from our community. The rules of the event are as follows: Every officer wishing to participate must make a monthly donation in order to be permitted to grow facial hair. We make two donations with the funds that are collected. For November we donate to a family for Thanksgiving, and for December we donate to a family for Christmas.

This year for "No Shave November" we voted to donate to help one of our own. Officer Castelonia is dealing with some serious health issues. He has been out from work for some time. During these tough times, PBA 151 and PBA 298 agreed that Officer Castelonia and his family are great candidates to receive our collection from the month of November. The Bureau of Law Enforcement PBA Local #151 collected a total of $1,750, and The Bureau of Corrections PBA Local #298 collected $2,250 totaling $4,000. Today we presented Officer Castelonia with a check of $3,000 and a $1,000 gift card to ShopRite to help his family this holiday season. We wish Officer Castelonia a speedy recovery. We also wish his family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

Our next donation will take place during the month of December to help a local family in need during the Christmas holiday.

We would like to give a special thank you to Sheriff James Gannon and the entire administration of the Morris County Sheriff's Office for allowing us to participate in this very special event every year.

The two Unions of the agency do not benefit financially from any of the donations that are collected, and every penny that is received is donated directly to families from our community to help with their financial burdens during the holiday season. The only benefit that we receive is personal heartfelt satisfaction for doing a good deed by helping friends and strangers. I would also like to personally thank each and every participant of this years “No Shave November 2021”. Your participation always helps make a family’s holiday a better one.

Veterans Day, celebrated each year on November 11th, was first celebrated on this same date in 1919, under the name of Armistice Day. The holiday was named in remembrance of the temporary ceasefire that brought about the unofficial end to World War I when, the year before, the Allied forces entered into an armistice with the Germans, stopping live battle on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

A year later, and nearly five months after the official end of the First World War (which occurred on June 28, 1919, with the Treaty of Versailles), President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11th the first commemoration with the following:

“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with the gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”

He called for parades and public gatherings and a brief moment of silence at 11a.m. Two years later, on November 11, 1921, an unidentified American soldier was buried at Arlington National Cemetery in what became known as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

To all of the Veterans out there, this Veterans Day holiday, the P.B.A. Local #298 would like to thank all of our men and women that have served and continue to serve in the armed forces, domestic and abroad for your service. Thank you for keeping us safe and free from outside threats. Thank you for living for our Country, and dying for our country. All of your services will never go unnoticed. Happy Veterans Day.

- Arthur Fiore - October 21, 1944 - October 28, 2021 -

With a heavy heart we would like to inform everyone of the passing of our friend President, and Retired Sergeant Arthur Fiore. He had passed away peacefully at his home last night. He was in the company of his loving wife, children, and grandchildren. He had just turned 77 years old on October 21, 2021.

For those who do not know Art, he was the founding member and President of PBA Local #298 in June of 1981. He was very proud of his accomplishment as the first President of this Union, as he should be. He worked and retired from The Morris County Sheriff's Office: Bureau of Corrections. Arthur served the citizens of Morris County at the old Morris County Jail which was located on Court Street across from the Administration & Records building, under the leadership of Sheriff John Fox. Arthur began his career with the agency in August of 1977 as an Officer and retired at the rank of Sergeant in January of 1988.

Due to the lack of legal aid, and representation during department contract negotiation , Arthur decided to establish the P.B.A. Local #298 through the New Jersey State Police Benevolent Association to help the Corrections Officers of Morris County. In June of 1981 the Local was registered with the NJSPBA and Arthur officially became the first P.B.A. Local #298 President. Thanks to Arthur the officers of the agency have been receiving the support and respect that they deserve as a law enforcement agency for over 38 years. He helped put the Union on the map that continues to grow stronger moving into the twenty first century. We would like to thank and honor our first President and Retired Sergeant Arthur R. Fiore for all that he has done to make this Union possible.

On December 5, 2020 the PBA Local #298 presented him with a plaque to honor him as the first President. A duplicate currently hangs in the "Green Mile" at the Morris County Correctional Facility in his honor and his memory where every person that passes through those doors can see.

I have become friends with Art over a year ago. I have been in touch with him over the phone on a frequent basis. He loved telling me stories of the old jail and how he started the Union. He loved telling me about how he used to spend the summers in Wildwood, NJ with his family when his children were little. He always bragged about his Wife Marilyn and how wonderful she is. He spoke highly about his children and grandchildren. There was no doubt that he loved his family more than anything. He was a good man with a heart of gold. I am honored to say that I have gotten to know Art this past year and he was my friend. I will miss him as he will be missed by all who knew him.

Tonight, I ask that you would please keep Art and his family in your prayers. Rest in peace my friend. May God rest your soul.

1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime and roughly 281,550 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in the United States, along with 49,290 cases of non-invasive breast cancer by the end of 2021. About 2,650 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men by the end of 2021. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 833.

As this year marks the 30th anniversary of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Officers of the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Bureau of Corrections went pink to show support to the courageous women and men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and honor those who have lost the battle to this terrible disease. The Morris County Sheriff’s Office: Bureau of Corrections P.B.A. Local #298 and Bureau of Law Enforcement P.B.A. Local #151 is also selling pink patches for $5 each to the public. All proceeds will be donated to a Morris County Family that has a family member who is fighting breast cancer.

Hey everyone. I’m sorry if this is not appropriate to ask on here, but trying to reach as many people as I can. I’ve never asked the PBA for anything and I hope you guys don’t mind me reaching out. If some of you aren’t aware, my aunt and uncle’s house in PR was pretty much completely destroyed, along with losing everything in it. We are trying to help them out a little bit. My brother opened up the attached Go Fund Me page, and I just wanted to see if you guys could at least share it. The page has been updated to include pictures of the house. Thank you.

I wanted to thank all of you for making my husbands wake and funeral so special. I have never seen a nicer service than his. I could never have done this without all of you. You were all so professional and amazing. We received nothing but compliments about all of you. My mom now wishes she was an officer lol. My kids and I felt so good with all of you there and all that you did. I can't thank you all enough. Thank you again ❤️ The Gerndt Family

I can't thank you enough and am so glad my husband worked with such wonderful people. My kids and I felt so good with all of you there for us. Thank you again ❤️ The Gerndt Family
