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.

I begin by congratulating all of the individuals and agencies that were recipients of 2016 NJNEOA Awards this June at the Annual Awards Luncheon, which was held June 9th at Bally’s in Atlantic City. This being the largest and most attended awards ceremony in the history of the association, as there were five hundred forty (540) individuals present for the event.
Secondly, congratulations and thanks must be given to Awards Chairman Nitin Daniels, for the countless hours spent reading, evaluating and then sifting through each nomination received to ultimately select this year’s recipients. Nitin and the members of his committee have truly done an outstanding job creating a professional and magnificent event.
Thanks also should be given to Training Chairman Bob Mazur and his training committee, along with the conference committee for a job well done, not only with this year’s (the 47th Annual) conference, but also with all the training events held this year. There were over two hundred seventy (270) individuals registered for the conference, with @240 present in each session. The association hasn’t had an attendance of that size in over a decade. At both the February and April seminars, there were over one hundred (100) individuals in attendance for each. Bob and his committee members have accomplished an amazing feat.
