Advisory: Prosecutor’s Office Seeks Help to Identify Man

Dear R May,

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey said today that authorities are seeking the public’s assistance with identifying the man in the composite sketch.

On August 12, 2016, the Perth Amboy Police Department reported that an unidentified individual had been discovered in a wooded area near the intersection of Herbert Street and Riverview Drive.

Forensic examination of the deceased revealed that the unidentified male was between the age of 25-35 and between 5’2” to 5’5” tall.

The New Jersey State Police Forensic Photograph and Composite Artist Unit with the assistance of Forensic Anthropologist Donna Fontana were able to reconstruct the pictured composite sketch. 

Authorities are attempting to positively identify the individual. Anyone with information as to the identity of this individual is asked to contact Det. Joseph Chesseri of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-745-3115 or Det. Jose Rosario with the Perth Amboy Police Department at 732-324-3811 or DSG. Joel Trella of the New Jersey State Police Missing Person Unit at 609-882-2000 ext. 2554

"My turn" I never heard of Wyclef Jean until this incident  but I give him a lot of credit for parlaying a lawful investigative vehicle stop into getting himself on a national prime time morning show I suspect with the assistance of the left leaning host/interviewer. The media exposure this person received for an incident which should be a blurb at best during a news round up segment.


A violent crime felony/ indictable crime) had just occurred before Jean and another were stopped by LA Deputy Sheriffs as a result of the description of the vehicle and persons given by witnesses to the crime. The stop was justified based on the description given. The officers took the necessary actions to protect themselves, the public and the two indidvuals that were in the vehicle while they determined if the two said persons were the perpetrators/ actors of the crime noted above. The entire process from start to finish took 6 minutes. Two other persons in a different vehicle were similarly stopped  a short time later which resulted in the arrest of the individuals who were remanded in lieu of 100 thousand dollar bail.

Mr. Jean or his representative stated  he is a

victim of racial profiling,  

victim of police brutality

victim of police bias. 

Mr. Jean who appeared to have no ID on his person, suggests during the national interview that the officers could have Goggled his name to verify who he is.  Goggling while the officers determined if they were in the presence of two people who had just committed a violent crime?

Within the interview the host brings in ABC Legal Analyst,  Attorney Dan Abrams, who had the courage to state what happened in the six minute incident by the actions taken by the LA Deputy Sheriffs were correct. The part of the interview with Mr. Abrams is totally cut off from the ABC GMA post.

Instead of ABC stating the LA Deputy Sheriffs did a good job during this six minute incident on so many levels, they give a person a national platform and media attention to assert  serious charges he was racial profiled, a victim of police brutality and a victim of police bias despite what a reasonable person might determine as contrary to the facts as they are known.

To Mr. Jean, you deserve kudos for getting a national media venue in morning prime time to tell your story.

To ABC, even your host of the interview appeared to have a hard time making this incident an  event deserving of prime time despite her serious looking facial expressions, her serious tones of voice and carefully worded verbiage.

To ABC's credit someone at the station had the guts to put Dan Abrams in the interview.  In turn Mr. Abrams  had the courage and guts to render a realistic  legal opinion of the incident, stating in sum and substance the officers actions were correct during the six minute incident. (I hope all you can view the cut Dan Abrams portion of the interview.)     

To the officers of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Office involved in the above mentioned incident......thank you, job well done! 


(this is the opinion of the author and not necessarily that of the association.)

Hip-hop artist and businessman Wyclef Jean today said he feared for his life when police briefly detained him in West Hollywood, California, early Tuesday morning ...



The Edison Township police Department will out fit 125 of their officers with body cams. The association advocated for the Body Cams when we were privileged to be part of a committee under the Office of the NJ Attorney General to discuss the use of Body Cams for law enforcement personnel in the state of New Jersey The person demonstrating the use of the body cam is NJAALEOA member and veteran Edison Police Officer J. Aldahondo


Recently NJAALEOA member and Edison Police Officer Donald Ship was recognized by the township and the department for his efforts to assist a needy family. Well deserved Officer Ship!  Photo: Officer Ship pictured in the middle with  Edison PD Chief  Thomas Bryan pictured to the far right.

The association was off the grid for three weeks. The association has some catching up to due sending out info that may be interesting  and or important to the membership and our many supporters.

Earlier this month long time member and supporter of the association Jeannette Gormeley graduated the police academy and was sworn in with approx. 25 others as the newest members of the Jersey City Police Department. Congratulations Officer Gormeley, well deserved!

On February 10th members of the association met with the honorable Mercer County Prosecutor A. Onofri at his office near NJ capital building. Several matters were discussed including but not limited to areas of mutual concern, a brief history of the association, assistance rendered to law enforcement departments and association community sponsored projects.

The meeting was informative and productive. Photo left to right: member Officer Josh Chatterjee, Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo J. Onofri, Association OEM Director Jamie Yeh and R. May. 


Congrats to Judge (ret) Sue Pai Yang for being honored during the 20th annual Home Crest community services gala this coming February 17th at the Jin Fong Restaurant.

Check out the exciting event that just past!

NJ State Trooper Frankie Williams  past away in the line of duty as a result of a serious motor vehicle accident  a few days ago caused by a motorist. Trooper Williams just graduated from the NJSP academy on January 29, 2016. Rest In Peace Trooper Frankie Williams

William Hall was a New Jersey State Trooper, a Chief with the Port Authority of NY & NJ Police Department and now a Supervisor In Charge for the Federal Air Marshal service, New York Office. Chief Hall as I addressed him during and after our days with the Port Authority recalls the days of 9-11-01 and beyond. in the video. The Chief has a command presence about him and  spoke in a quiet tone most often unless you did not have the answers you were expected to have. Then no words were needed as one would look at his blue eyes and know you goofed up. A true commander that those just starting out could learn much from.



Last Sunday A New Jersey State Trooper showed the New Jets what an open field tackle should look like.

Though unconfirmed, the trooper received an invite from the Jets to try out for a position during the next free agent try outs.

During the year the association works hard to keep you informed on many issues. We continue to have a personal relationship with a multi vehicle dealership to afford you personal service and a great deal. We have extremely competent attorneys to assist you and your family .

The association conducted more mock orals,  and more interview  scenarios than ever for our membership.  Our associate members have reached out to us more than ever before on a variety of issues.

Our annual "Asianfest" law enforcement social/ career fair has grown bigger and better than ever.

Continue to join with us, the oldest, largest Asian base ALL INCLUSIVE fraternal law enforcement organization in the state of New Jersey. Membership is still 35. until January 1, 2017, then it is 40.  NJAALEOA shirts are still only 5. until January 1, 2017 then it is 10. per shirt. Reminder on can use PayPal using  www.njaaleoa.org  Thank you to those that have already become 2017 members and to those that have told others about the association and they have become members for 2017. Now how about you?

      Yesterday (11/4/16) NYPD Sargent Paul Tuzzolo died of a gun shot wound by a perp. While in the performance of his duties the 19 year veteran responded to a domestic violence call when he was confronted by an armed individual who shot Sgt. in the head. Yet another tragic ending where a wife and two children will not see their husband/father come home anymore.

   On November 2, 2016 Des Moines Iowa Sergeant Anthony Beminio while on patrol was cowardly shot and killed "ambush style" by a known low life. Yet another tragic ending where a wife and their three children will not see or hear their father anymore.

  On November 2 Urbandale Iowa Police Officer while on patrol was cowardly shot and killed "ambush style" by a known low, the same individual who killed Sgt. Beminio. Yet another tragic ending where a young man with less than two years on the job will never go back to the only job he ever wanted.

More ambush style assassinations   of police officers, more indidvuals who shoot to kill police officers without a moment's notice. 

May these officers and those before them rest in peace. Their end of tours came too soon. Their acts of bravery and heroism will be remembered much, much longer.


  ".....Back each other up, watch out for one another, be on high alert at all times, be vigilant, be great and go home safe!!!  Words to remember. From a well respected Chief of Police in New Jersey.




To those members that were kind enough to donate to the NJAA Law Enforcement Foundation a IRS approved 501c3 foundation, thank you. Your generosity will go a long way to provide scholarships and other programs. To those that pledged to donate and maybe forgot, now would be a good time as any. For those that were on the fence, your tax deductible donation would be appreciated by the foundation


 The Edison Police Department recently introduced their bike patrol squad to the public. Officer C. Gadomki  along with Officers Lisa Cimmino, Jennifer Aldahondo and Neel Patel comprise the bike patrol squad. Cimmino, Aldahondo and Patel also happen to be members of the NJAALEOA. Looking good bike squad! 





Up front and close with those that know what it takes to become a New Jersey State Trooper. A power point presentation and your questions answered in a social setting. 

The New Jersey State Police is one of the largest law enforcement organizations in the state of New Jersey. At the October 22nd meeting we have the privilege of three State Troopers , all who are veterans of the NJSP recruitment unit.  What does it take to become NJ State trooper? What are the qualities sought by the NJSP in a candidate?

How long is the process? What is the process? I go could on and on but it may be better said by You or a family member or friend. Are the answers to your inquires transferable when seeking other positions I suspect the answer is a resounding YES.

Great food! great company! Great guests! in Dep. Chief Mieczkowski and the recruiting team of the New Jersey State Police. A power point presentation will be first before the question and answer session. Several, not one, not two but several association members are in the NJSP process, why not you, your family member or friend?

Recently a group from the Taiwan National Police Agency visited the Unites States to observe the best practices from various law enforcement departments. They visited with the honorable Dr. Henry Lee as well as The Morris County Sheriff's Office. Morris County Undersheriff William Schievella gave them the VIP tour of their facilities.

On 9/27/2016  NJAALEOA OEM Director Jamie Yeh & President Emeritus Robert May represented the association at the swearing in of the honorable NJ Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino. The event held at the Hughes Justice complex in Trenton was an extremely well attended event. As Jamie and I sat 4 rows away from the stage
 in front of AG Porrino we learned he is a brilliant attorney and just as important appears to be a down to earth person as his predecessor AG John Hoffman. 
History was made at the swearing in as for the first time ever, an electronic bible was used to swear in AG Porrino.  The honorable Governor Chris Christie and two past Governors B. Byrne and J. McGreevy were present at the swearing in. Jamie and I before or after the ceremony had the opportunity to confer with  County Prosecutors A. Carey (Middlesex), G. Park (Union), A. Onofri (Mercer), R. Bernardi (Burlington) and G. Grewal (Bergen). Jamie and I also had the opportunity to briefly confer other highly regarded indidvuals such  as AG J.Hoffman, Director E. Honig, Chief of staff  R. Ricigliano and NJSP NCO President P. Stillanessis. During the ceremony there were several standing ovations for AG Porrino which to this writer were/are well deserved. The office of the Attorney General continues to be in good hands with the honorable Christopher S, Porrino at its helm.  The NJAALEOA looks forward to continue  working with AG Porrino and his staff.

An opportunity in Bergen County (thanks to joe)


With the recent multiple terrorist attacks in New Jersey, and New York of which the animal was apprehended two things hardly spoken of by the media but played a large part in the big picture.

1) There was an abundance of good luck on a number of levels. Such as the delay of the 5K race in Seaside Heights. No one was close enough to be killed at all the locations.

2) The perpetrator and thank goodness is not the brightest color in the box. Used classic well known methods to make IED's but only had the (and thank goodness) the ability to construct said instruments poorly where several devices did not go off.

Kudos to the bureau (including their techs), the ATF, and other law enforcement personnel including the NJ officer who recognized the perp. when the officer was removing him from the front of an establishment.  


The garbage is alive as is all he tried to kill......



Congrats to our own Neel P. who went down on one knee recently and asked this lovely young lady, "Will you marry me?" Figuring they just jumped out of a plane together how much worse can it get, she said YES. Congrats to the lovely couple.






/31/16) was the last day for NJAALEOA member Jeanette G. as a Senior NJS corrections officer. Tomorrow Jeanette obtains a new title. That of rookie Jersey City Police Officer. Jeanette is the second member in recent months to join one of the largest police forces in the state. Congratulations to Jeanette G.  

8-16-2016 The NJAALEOA in junction with the NJ Asian American Law Enforcement Foundation donated dozens of school supplies to the Amboy Bank effort which in turn gives the supplies to those children in need.  From right to left  Amboy bank manager Carol DiCola, President Emeritus/ founder of the NJAALEOA R.

Another year, another successful picnic!  I would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this event so successful.  The hard work and dedication is what makes this picnic so successful year after year.  I would also like to thank all the companies and people who donated.  Click here for some photos.


The association is always proud and happy to know when a member receives an award or special recognition. This one is quite unique as the award is being given by an organization 1/2 way around the world to long time supporter and NJAALEOA member, retired supervisory US Air Marshal Tom Masters. Tom will next week fly to South Korea to receive "The Exceptional Korean of the Year "award by the Global Journalists Club of Korea. In part Tom will receive this prestigious award because of his "service to the US community and recruitment of Koreans Americans, specifically into law enforcement and ASIAN Americans, generally." Congrats Agent (ret) Thomas Masters, well deserved!

What are some of the youth of America, drinking,smoking  or eating to become possible future knuckle head leaders? Actually phrasing a question is an excellent investigative tool but the question posed to these youngsters still gives info of a name of a  brutal dictator, the name of an oppressive country  and the successful launch of a nuclear weapon by said country Media has covered the actions of North Korea for years yet these are responses of some of our youth.





Please note the attached photo. Two of our members travelled to Washington DC to attended this ground breaking event, NJSP Trooper G. Hong and our OEM Director Jamie Yeh.

On April 10, 2016, The Taiwanese American First Responders Benevolent Organization was formally established and recognized at a diplomatic ceremony in Washington, D.C. Founder & President Fung and Vice President Lee provided the delegates and volunteers with a presentation and mission of the organization.  
Among the law enforcement and homeland security attendees included Lt. Col. Lin from Taiwan National Police Agency, Dep. Federal Security Director Mildiner from Transportation Security Administration, Trooper Hong from New Jersey State Police, Detective Yu from Montgomery County Police, and OEM Director Yeh from New Jersey Asian American Law Enforcement Officers Association.

Several members of the association a few months ago participated in a national scale project by the distinguished Vera Institute. Earlier this year the publication was released with the approval of the US Attorney General Loretta Lynch. This project deals with current real time policing issues. Whether law enforcement executives want to acknowledge it exists or believe their jurisdictions have absolutely no need to address the issue of being more effective at community policing  maybe just maybe everyone should at least read through these guidebooks. From the 1st line patrol officer to the person with all the stars on their shoulders and scrambled eggs on their hats should at least read through this. I suspect community leaders, educators, criminal justice majors and John Q. Citizen will be able to take something away from this read. Early feedback from law enforcement personnel have been very positive.

On a personal note I would like to thank those officers from the association for taking part in this project. I would also like to thank the Vera Institute  for including Asians within the context of the word "community" when often Asians are for whatever reason are left out of the conversation.  Please take a period of time and look over the guidelines. The URL noted after the press release will lead you to the text. For a written copy of the guidelines please contact the Vera Institute.

Congrats to NJSP Sgt.FC Williams on the successful School Resource Association event held this past week in Bergen County. The "Casino Nite" event  raises funds for the programs conducted by the  resource officers association. not sure if it was mentioned but congrats to NJAALEOA member Agent J.B. upon finally springing the question to his long time girlfriend... and she said Yes.  If anyone has a super event like this one, please let us know so we can share the info with a few hundred of your closest friends and associates!

There is no doubt in my mind many have forgotten what happened and the significance of September 11th. Please take a moment ,one moment out of  your day today to pause and reflect of  that day in September of 2001 where thousand of innocents were slain and hundreds made the ultimate sacrifice to save many.

Policing has its benefits. 
Recruitment, age does not matter
Making for a good day to those we serve, one small person at a time
Having our citizens know they are safe and secure, one shiny badge at a time.

This has happened in the past and it will happen in the future, a reason for law enforcement to video  their own actions now in days. People see and hear things differently, whether intentional or not. 


On Monday April 27,2015 yours truly traveled to the Morris County Police and Fire Academy as I was honored and privileged to speak on behalf of the NJAALEOA before the graduating  class of young woman and men who took part in and past the Law Enforcement Career Development Course. As I looked out to the audience of graduates from the dais I was humbled to know that despite the recent intense hatred of law enforcement by organized thugs, punks and the like, there were young adults striving to become a member of blue  each knowing one day they may have to but themselves in harms way to protect others. These graduates reminded me of many of our associate members of which some are graduates of this course and they too know our job is one that in a split second  things can change for the worse. 
This is an amazing program. The powerhouse of law enforcement officials and on the dais and university administrators in the front row was to say the least most impressive. The most impressive of all is who in the world could produce this one of kind program ,bring  together an array of well respected law enforcement officials to teach the course as to give these young college adults a real sense of what lies ahead for them in the law enforcement community? All NJAALEOA members and supporters have heard his name on a number of occasions by the association.  He is a great supporter of the NJAALEOA. He is a long time multi decade friend of mine. He is none other than  Morris County Undersheriff William Schievella.  Undersheriff Schievella spoke in part of the diversity of the graduating class and as I looked at the faces of those in the audience how true his words were. A diverse, educated, smart  law enforcement community... that's a good thing for all concerned.
I was going to speak about how not everyday will be safe free and  keeping public order is not the easiest thing to achieve in a world whose population is mixed with outright lawless people. This was too happy of an occasion to speak of a lesson they all will learn in the future when they put on the "blue".
I spoke about the NJAALEOA and emphazied if the NJAALEOA could be of assistance to anyone of the graduates all they has to do was to reach out to their Executive Director of the program Undersheiff Schievella. The keynote speaker was Deputy NJ Attorney General Wanda Moore who spoke upon several issues using a video presentation. It was an excellent presentation.
One of the remarks by Under sheriff Schievella was how important networking is to the law enforcement community. How true. The NJAALEOA is proud and honored to network with Undersheriff Schievella and the programs he produces for the good of so many. Last night (4/28/15) was a good night for our future in law enforcement , those highly regarded within the law enforcement community, the educators in attendance, the families of the graduates and myself. Why, for so many reasons.... but one particular  selfish reason comes to  mind.  For one night, this  night the good that is within the law enforcement community shined and shined brightly without one word from a cop hater,or a puck that wishes death upon us everyday   because unfrotuneately  a few did wrong while  the vast majority, the huge majority in law enforcement day in and day out 24 hours a day protect and serve as they are sworn do until they hang up the handcuffs and call it a day 20, 25, 30 years down the road.  This was a good day for me, this was an excellent day for me and I thank the graduates, the law enforcement professionals , the educators at the ceremony  and  especially one very special person who does so much for so many,..... one  William Schievella. 
Photos: left: photo Undersheriff William Schievella in a rare uniform photo ,  Port Auth. of NY & NJ Police Officer I Irving, it was a pleasant surprise to see one of my own from the PAPD at the ceremony   and yours truly.

The NJAALEOA and all those associated with us, we honor the name of 25 year old  NYC Police Officer Brian Moore.


Your  alone making a car stop
Your in plain clothes
You have no idea who the driver is nor the person in the back seat.
plus at least 15 other concerns including one should consider everything  may be recorded for the good, bad or otherwise. 
On the flip side, a rush to judgment of racial profiling of police by a current known actress is blown out of the water when a video clearly displays no such action occurred.  The officer could have suffered a lot of grief  had it not been for the video. The officer in fact was by far courteous and professional in his handling of the incident.
Two videos with law enforcement personnel involved, two different outcomes.
If you had to choose , which video would you be in?

A happy moment, Congratulates to Detective Lieutenant Dennis Lam upon his recent retirement from the Madison Township Police Department.  Detective Lieutenant Lam a well respected police commander and community leader I am sure will be missed in Madison. The NJAALEOA is extremely proud to have Dennis as a member and we hope he will mentor upcoming rookies that may one day  fill his big shoes as a knowledgeable , well respected police commander. Best of luck to Detective Lieutenant Dennis Lam!!

The association received this from several sources. This is to all that protect and serve, municipal, county, state, bi state, federal and all other law enforcement entities. This is worth passing on.

The Executive Director of the NPDF Joe Occhipinti has broadcast a 2500.00 reward for the safe recovery of Timothy Hamlett. Please post where appropriate. The NJAALEOA thanks the Executive and the NPDF for their efforts. 
Click here for more details.

 The following was received from our brother and sister fraternal  law enforcement organization from across the river. As noted the proceeds to the journal will be given to the parents of Detective's Liu.  Click here for more info.

This will also be sent to corporate entities as well as out of  state law enforcement personnel If you or an associate you know can assist please do so. Tickets to attend the event is sold out with a waiting list being used. The purchase of a  journal ad  is  way of showing your support to law enforcement and to Detective Liu's family

The noted  above attachment is a way of donating to the families of Detectives Liu and Ramos. The association has not heard back from the NYPD AJS in regards to a trust fund for the families. Most times it takes several weeks to accomplish a trust like that. The tee shirts which are twenty dollars each as indicated will have the proceeds go to the families of both detectives. Detectives Liu and Ramos were  assigned to the 84 precinct at the times of their pasting. There is no notion of civilians purchasing a shirt.

Update: Any donations for the Liu family can be sent to our PO Box. NYPD Asian Jade Society P.O. Box  969 Peck Slip Station
New York NY 10272
Checks Should be made out to the PO Wen Jian Liu family C/O NYPD Asian Jade Society

NYPD Detective is laid to rest today 1/4/15, a few days after his partner NYPD  Detective Ramos was laid to rest at the same cemetery. The association has received numberous photos of the funeral detail from association members who attended the funeral. In honor and remembrance of Detectives Liu and Ramos the association will post photos in a special section of  the association websites. 
Today, in the New York Times, a Sunday front page article focused on  Asians- Americans in law enforcement and  the NYPD. The article ( video version) also included headline input from NJAALEOA President Joseph Luistro  and a quote from yours truly (print article). The print article headlined NYPD Detective (ret) Tommy Ong who is now a PI. Tommy continues to be a positive force in promoting "the job" NYPD and is often times at NYPD AJS events with camera in hand. It is the hope of the association that the New York Times article written by David Chen and video, produced by Channon Hodge  promotes the fact the fabric of professional law enforcement in this country and state and should  consist of  individuals of not just one background but of several, including but not limited to Asian Americans.

The following attachment is the bio of Tunnel and Bridge Officer Thomas Choi. As mentioned in an earlier e-mail his passing is a result of a line of duty injury which left him a coma that he never came out of.
RIP Officer Thomas Choi.

 The association has received a number of photos taken before, during and after the funeral of slain NYPD Detective Liu. The association will send out a few photos in a future e-mail but will have many others displayed on a special section of our websites. Many NJAALEOA members attended the funeral and wake to pay respects to Detective Liu and his family as they did during  Detective's Ramos's wake and funeral. It must be noted that the NYPD Asian Jade Society held a gathering of law enforcement  personnel from around the country who are members of the National Asian Peace Officers Association as to one final time, as a group, pay their respects to hero cop.... NYPD Detective  Wen Jian Liu. The NYPD Asian Jade Society deserves  kudos to have such a gathering  at a  Brooklyn restaurant for over one hundred law enforcement personnel at their own expense. 

The following are photos taken of NYPD Detective Liu's wake which was held in Brooklyn, the same location where the funeral for the Detective will take place. These photos were taken by NJAALEOA member , avid supporter David Lin.  An additional e-mail will follow with photos taken by David.


Around 2000 hours (12/20/14) the Police Commissioner of the New York City Police Department held a press conference and in detail spoke of the execution of two members of the force, Police Officer Ramos and Police Officer Liu. at the hands of a punk, scum, ganged up, coward. As indicated by Commissioner Bratton, the two officers did not have a chance to respond to the deadly threat posed to them while they were on duty, in uniform and doing what they were sworn to do while in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn.  It was noted by the commissioner that the scum probably traveled from an out of state jurisdiction and purposely traveled to Brooklyn intent on killing New York City Police officers this day.
Officer Liu from sources has indicated he is a member of the New York City Police Asian Jade Society, our brother organization across the river. Non the less these are our brothers, Liu and Ramos, in blue that made the ultimate sacrifice and on this day will not ever again come home to their families. 
NJAALEOA President  Luistro and I discussed this tragic incident that led to the death of Officers Liu and Ramos before the Commissioner's press conference. We cannot stress enough the need for all to be vigilant as best as you can though in this case this punk never gave Officers Liu and Ramos a chance to respond to his actions against them. Please be careful out there and to our associates if you see something report it.
The NJAALEOA mourns the loss of two  of our own in blue from the New York City Police Department.

his is from James Ng,  the current President of the NYPD Asian Jade Society. James is a Sgt. assigned to the Midtown Pct.
NAPOA President James Ng today issued a news release with the following statement:
“The National Asian Peace Officers Association mourns the death of one our own members from the local chapter of the New York Police Department Asian Jade Society. Our heartfelt condolences to the family of Officer Wenjian Liu, a 7-year officer who married just 2 months ago. He immigrated to this country as a teen from Toishan, a city in southern Guangdong province in China. His parents are ...understandably grief stricken over the loss of their only child.”
“At Woodhull Hospital, where Officer Liu had been taken after the shooting, I had the painful task of providing English translation to Officer Liu’s family. In the days ahead, we hope the outpouring of support and assistance from the National Asian Peace Officers Association and its 22 chapters across the nation will provide comfort to the Liu family. We shall deeply miss Officer Liu. Not only will we always remember you, but always, we will be very grateful to you for your honorable devotion and dedication to protecting our communities.”

Congratulations to Past NJAALEOA Ex. Bd. member and Jersey City Police Officer Joel Villabroza upon his promotion to Detective on 12/22/2014. Joel has been a long standing member of the association and it is a well deserved promotion.
