In 1965, a small group of law enforcement officers and concerned citizens met at the North Ward Civic Association in Newark to discuss the growing problem of drug abuse and how it was affecting our young people, our family structure and our society. From that meeting came the birth of the NEW JERSEY NARCOTIC ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ASSOCIATION. As of today the NJNEOA has more than 2000 who have joined the association, representing Federal, State, County and Municipal law enforcement, as well as private industry, the professions, education and government.

The NJNEOA’s 48th Annual Training Conference and Awards Luncheon was a huge success. Attendance to both was, for the second year in a row, at a record number. Thank you to Training Chairman Robert Mazur, Awards Chairman Nitin Daniels, along with all the Conference Committee members who helped out in Atlantic City in the day-to-day operations of the event.
Congratulations to Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp on being selected as “Prosecutor of the Year”, and to all the other award recipients. The Awards Committee sifts through the hundreds of submissions received throughout the year, resulting with the selection of recipients for the Awards Luncheon. The selection of each recipient is based on not necessarily the investigation and its result, but their professionalism, integrity, dedication above and beyond the call of duty, along with the efforts expended.
We will be holding our 5th Annual Fundraising “Cigar Night” event on October 12th aboard the “Casino St. Charles” in Perth Amboy. It is being offered in conjunction with a “Narc Reunion.” All retired ex-narcotics officers will be offered a ticket to the event at a 35% discount with a pre-registration. Come out and get a chance to re-unite with those long-time brother officers that you once worked investigations with throughout the years. Further details can be found on our Events Calendar. All proceeds help fund the NJNEOA Drug Awareness Program and the Annual Training Conference.
