As we enter into this strange Holiday Season, we at the Gloucester Township Police Department still believe that we have much to be thankful for.
We are thankful for the recovery of our officers who were infected with COVID-19. We are thankful that we were able to be there to help those who have called us in their time of need. We are thankful for this great community that we serve. We are thankful to be able to do what we are called to do. We are thankful that our community has shown us so much support even during some turbulent times in our country.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, please take a moment to remember the 253 Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty this year. This staggering number is up from 148 line of duty deaths in 2019. Please remember their families, who are grieving their loved ones during the holiday season.
We honor them by carrying on our law enforcement mission. We have hope for better days to come. The men and women of the Gloucester Township Police Department will continue to be 100% on duty and ready to respond when our community needs us.
On behalf of all of the members of the Gloucester Township Police Department, know that we are honored to serve you, and we would like to wish you a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving!
Thank you for your support!
