First off, I hope everyone’s families are doing well during this unbelievable time. You will read updates from the 1st Vice President in regards to our upcoming training and training conference.
Everything we read is about the Coronavirus and COVID-19 and I don’t want to repeat what you already know. I want to take the time to thank all the first responders for always going above and beyond especially in this situation. You are putting your life at risk like never before and we all appreciate everything that is being done to keep our communities safe. To the many Officers that have contracted this virus and had to alter their own lifestyle, thank you! Please get better soon.
I also want to thank all the nurses, doctors, urgent cares and hospital staff for their courage and bravery and working countless hours to help all of us and our families.
To all the educators, teachers, teachers aids and school staff, thank you for putting together online programs for our children.
To our children, thank you for understanding and doing your best in this situation.
To the Moms and Dads that have to stay home to care for their children or loved ones, thank you for all you do.
To the Board of Directors of the NJNEOA, thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to continue to run the NJNEOA and ensure that the future is secured. Our recent meeting was a video conference and although it was not ideal we were able to conduct our business and do what is best for the association.
At the NJNEOA, we often say, we are here to do what is right and best for our mission. The mission is to provide the best training (not the best Narcotics training) but the best training to Law Enforcement Officers. Drug awareness and training is what we do. When everything becomes normal, we guarantee we will continue to provide you the best training possible.
I will finish the way I started, I hope everyone’s families are doing well, staying healthy and happy. Thank you and be extremely safe out there – God Bless you all.
