More Law Enforcement officers kill themselves every year than are murdered.

As Law Enforcement, we can talk so freely and easily about tactics, physical fitness and even gossip. However, we rarely discuss the biggest threat to cops.
Su***de.

To my brothers and sisters, be well. Be nice. Let's do a better job of how we treat each other.
Look out for one another. Truly have each other's backs. Don't just say it.

I can do a better job of this myself!

To anyone who commands or supervises... Treat everyone with respect and dignity. Be a human being, be decent and remain humble. To many of you, stop seeking the negative in others and instead, support your people.

The only thing people remember about you is the way you treated them.

To everyone who loves a cop or respects the work of one...thank you.

If you don't...well, that's ok too.
God bless and stay safe.

To all our PBA 105 brother and sisters we have lost continue to watch over us.

Law enforcement officers at NJDOC facilities frequently assume several roles. Senior Correctional Police Officer Charles Snider of Mid-State Correctional Facility is no exception. He diligently and professionally ladders up critical information and concerns to administration to promote efficiency and productivity and engages in the facility’s charitable Adopt-A-Family program. He never hesitates to help out a colleague, friend, or member of the public, and this is what makes him #NJDOCStrong.

On 8/12/21 At approx 9pm OFC F.Ferretti was traveling south on route 9 in freehold NJ. While traveling on route 9 south , traffic came to a stop and All cars proceeded to the right lane. While moving over to the right lane He saw a man unconscious laying in the left lane. He immediately moved his car into the shoulder and got out. While He was rushing over to the man a freehold police officer was rushing over as well, they immediately went to work on saving this man. They turned the man on his back and hooked him up to an AED. At that point they started giving chest compressions. After a few minutes local EMT’s arrived and took over the scene. We applaud OFC Ferretti for remaining alert and taking action.

Our custody staff is trained to act in a variety of emergency situations inside and outside of the facilities. When New Jersey State Prison Officer James Zeban witnessed a vehicle collide with two motorcycles, he knew exactly what to do. Ofc. Zeban was off duty when he was traveling up Route 179 North in Hunterdon County and came upon the critical accident. One car was smoking in a ditch, while the two motorcyclists were thrown from their bikes, which lay overturned in the road. Acting quickly, Ofc. Zeban assessed the condition of all drivers, and the authorities were contacted. With Ofc. Zeban’s assistance, the crash victims were loaded onto a transport and airlifted to the nearest hospital. This sort of swift, responsive action is what makes Ofc. Zeban #NJDOCStrong.

Unions make pitch: Use COVID aid for NJ state worker hazard pay

Frank Crivelli, an attorney for PBA Local 105, said state corrections officers should get premium pay of $75 per shift. He said five of the union’s died from COVID and over 2,200 got the virus, some spreading it to family members.

“We believe that this particular payment is going to be helpful as far as the morale goes to these members because of the illness and sickness that they’ve actually had, and again it’s going to be money that’s going to be paid to the members which is going to go directly back into the economy,” he said.

A New Jersey State Correctional Police Officer proved himself a hero on
Friday evening when he saved the life of a fellow officer who was choking.
An on-duty Lieutenant, assigned as Shift Commander within Garden State Youth Correctional Facility, was sitting at his desk when he heard a disturbance behind him. Turning to investigate, he found a fellow officer choking and unable to communicate any verbal sounds. Quick on his feet, nearby Officer John Randall immediately responded, utilizing rescue thrusts in an effort to clear the blocked airway.
As an emergency distress signal was about to be called, the choking officer began to take breaths once again.
“As a result of Officer Randall’s quick observation and reaction, he was able to avert a disastrous outcome. It is my belief he saved that officer’s life. Officer Randall utilized his training in a manner the New Jersey Department of Corrections can be proud of,” reported the Lieutenant.
The officer took a few minutes to regain normal breathing and was escorted to the on-site infirmary for medical evaluation. Once cleared, he refused further outside medical attention and chose to return to duty.
“We would like to wholeheartedly thank Officer John Randall for his quick-thinking in a time when a matter of seconds could have meant the difference between life and death. His willingness to act without second thought shows the true hero he is and the type of character we hope to see in a Correctional Police Officer,” said William Sullivan, President of the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association Local 105.
