We have some amazing weather coming up which includes some very hot days.

What better way to cool down than to get some fresh lemonade made by one of community youngsters.

Officer's Walrond, Keller and Dorsainvil stopped by to see Ava at her lemonade stand today near Cheesequake Park.

5 stars for Ava's delicious lemonade 🙂🙂🙂

We will be out and about the next few days. If you know of any other lemonade stands that we can visit, please send us a private message and we will do our best to stop by and say hi. 😎😎😎

It's another steamer today so if you must go out, look for some of our young entrepreneurs selling cold drinks in their neighborhoods.

Yesterday, while on patrol, Officer's Janks (l) and Weiss (r) made a pit stop on Shoshone St. to cool down and get some refreshing Iced Tea. The kids were super excited that our men in blue became their new customer.

On behalf of Old Bridge PBA Local 127, I would like to thank Bill Spadea of NJ 101.5 for recognizing our officer's with his segment this morning. Bill is a huge supporter of law enforcement and we are grateful for his public recognition.

***For clarification purposes, I was not at the scene of this fire. Anytime you hear my name performing actions at the scene, it was actually Sgt. Brandon Ward. I wanted to give proper credit where credit was due. There was miscommunication on my end when I spoke to Bill's morning show producer.

Click on the videos in the comments section to hear Bill recognize the officer's who went above and beyond at the scene.

Have a great weekend everyone,

Police Kryptonite?

If anyone was ever interested in a weakness that police (and all people have in general) its definately Girl Scout cookies and thin mints.

A few days ago, a representative from Operation Jersey Cares stopped by police headquarters and dropped off several cases of Girl Scout cookies and mints. We will certainly put these to good use!!!

Thank you to Operation Jersey Cares for thinking of us with this generous donation!!

Topic of the day - PENSION FRAUD and/or ABUSE

Do you know someone who is possibly committing pension fraud? Pension fraud can consist of many different things. One of the biggest abuses of the pension system is when someone close to retirement pads their pension by getting astronomical pay raises. For instance, if someone received a 30% pay raise over the last 2 or 3 years of their employment, that could possibly be considered pension fraud.

If you are aware of anyone whom you believe is abusing the pension system, be Shah to contact the number below.

Old Bridge PBA Local 127 would like to wish everyone a very safe Memorial day. Just remember, this day isn't about the beaches, day off, or BBQs. This day is about honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us to live in a free world. At some point today, take a short pause and honor the fallen.

The Old Bridge PBA Local 127 men and women want to thank those in our military and their families. Both home and abroad, for all that you do, did, and sacrificed. Several of our own members have dedicated themselves to our military and we salute all of you!
Don't forget to thank those in uniform who are out on the streets working, away from their families, to make sure you have a worry free holiday. Most importantly please do not drink and drive!!

NATIONAL POLICE WEEK is now underway - May 14-20 2023

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation's Capital each year.

The National Peace Officers Memorial Service, which is sponsored by the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, is one in a series of events which includes the Candlelight Vigil, which is sponsored by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and seminars sponsored by Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)

National Police Week draws in between 25,000 to 40,000 attendees. The attendees come from departments throughout the United States as well as from agencies throughout the world. This provides a unique opportunity to meet others who work in law enforcement. In that spirit, the Fraternal Order of Police DC Lodge #1 sponsors receptions each afternoon and evening during Police Week. These events are open to all law enforcement personnel and are an experience unlike any other.

Special Delivery

Old Bridge PBA Local 127 members received a very special delivery from a very special person.

It was Eric's thank you to us for sponsoring him in this year's Polar Bear Plunge in Seaside Heights.

Old Bridge PBA Local 127 President Vinny Galgano was on hand and had the pleasure of meeting Eric.

All of us are proud of Eric's accomplishments and we will continue to sponsor him and the Special Olympics for the many years to come.

Special Olympics - Project Unify

Recently, Kim Tengi, a Special Education teacher at Shepard School and coordinator for 15 Old Bridge Unified programs, reached out to us looking for a partner to help support their Special Olympics Play Unified program. Kim explained that the program really needed some help with purchasing participant uniforms.

Old Bridge PBA Local 127 and 127a have stepped up. Yesterday, Old Bridge PBA Local President Vinny Galgano presented Kim with a $1000 donation to be used toward the purchase of those uniforms. Kim explained that this donation will bring her much closer to her goal.

The Unified program is a feeder system to create a more accepting and understanding environment for our community. These participants are the next generation and are our game changers, Kim explained.

Thank you Kim for the tremendous work you do for this program and we are are proud to be a supporter now and for the years to come!!

Social Media Press Release

It comes with great sadness to announce that PBA Local 127 must temporarily suspend charitable contributions at this time.

Unfortunately, due to blatant and unnecessary contract violations by the current Acting Chief of Police, Joseph Mandola against Old Bridge PBA Local 127 (rank and file officers), we recently sustained significant legal expenses to defend the rights of each and every PBA member in our union. Most recently, Old Bridge PBA Local 127 was forced to file an Emergency Order with the Middlesex County Superior Court where the Honorable Lisa M. Vugnuolo ruled in our favor. Even though we received a positive outcome as expected, we suffered a significant financial blow, again unnecessary, at the hands of the Acting Chief. Actions like this are not only a burden to the members of our organization but also to the taxpayers of the township. The township will now also be forced with spending taxpayer money to defend the Acting Chief’s unnecessary and unwarranted decisions affecting our members. It is for reasons like this that with a heavy heart, we must temporarily suspend our charitable work for our community.

As many of you are aware, over the past 5 years we have donated close to $100,000 to many noble causes including our Old Bridge Township Food Bank and graduating high school seniors in the form of college scholarships. Fortunately, we had already allocated our senior scholarship money for 2022; therefore, it will not be affected. It truly pains us to have to take this path but we have no other option as we cannot have people arbitrarily violate our lawful rights in conjunction with bankrupting our PBA with legal expenses.

With all that being said, I still want to urge everyone to please continue to send in your donation requests. We hope to resolve these matters as quickly as possible in order to get back to doing what we do best…Giving back to the community who we serve each and every day!

Thank you Old Bridge
