BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Recently Ted Romankow gave Anthony England, son of Vito Mondelli's niece Rose England Vito's Marine flag on behalf of Vito's estate at the "Fallen Soldier" statue donated by Mr Mondelli.

Anthony, a former dispatcher for Berkeley Heights Police Dept, was recruited by the Bernards Township Police Dept. where he has been a Police officer for almost three years. Anthony England, Jr., son of Anthony Sr. (Butch) & Rosie England graduated from Kean University with honors in 2012. He holds a B.A. in Criminal Justice, with a minor in Public Administration. He is currently completing his Master's Degree at Seton Hall University. 

From 2008-12, while attending school, Anthony was a dispatcher for Berkeley Heights Police Dept. He graduated from Monmouth County Police Academy in 2013, finishing at the top of his class, and was recruited by the Bernards Township Police Dept. where he has been a Police officer for almost three years.

Anthony has followed in the footsteps of his father Butch England, his grandfather, the late Sgt. Dan Mondelli, and his great-uncle, the late Vito Mondelli, in his career choice to serve his community. Anthony comes from a long line of Berkeley Heights township municipal employee's, and is honored to receive his Uncle Vito's Flag, which will be placed in a cabinet along side of his grandfather's flag.
