National Peace Officers Memorial Day
 
Today is National Peace Officers Memorial Day. The South Brunswick Police Department remembers all the officers nationwide killed in the line of duty, especially the 2 South Brunswick officers who lost their lives in service to our community. Chief Raymond Hayducka said, “The work we do is more challenging than ever, and the men and women who are called to this profession know the unique calling. Let us never forget those who answered the call to service and made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our community safe.”
