DENVILLE, NJ -- The community of Denville Township came together to support their local servicemen in a “Support Your Local Police” rally held at the intersection of West Main Street, Broadway, and Diamond Spring Road on Sept. 19.
The Montville Township Republican County Committee and the Montville Township Republican Club organized the event. Over the past two months, the organizations have held similar rallies in their home district, as well as in West Caldwell, Parsippany and Wharton.
The rally drew close to 100 volunteers, from local residents to politicians, who gathered downtown with signs that read “We Support Our Police.” Thousands of cars passed through the downtown intersection, honking their horns in response.
“It’s unbelievable to see this many people rallying in support of the men and women who dedicate their lives to keep us safe,” said New Jersey Assemblyman Brian Bergen, a former Denville council member.
“We’re humble to be a part of this amazing event.”
Several Denville governing body members, including Council President John Murphy, joined the rally donning their face masks and hoisting their rally signs.
“It’s great to see this support for our police department,” said Murphy.
“The men and women in blue have a very hard job that no one else will do.”
Township residents, such as Tanya Henson, came with their family and friends, appreciating the opportunity to support their police officers.
“I love this occasion, and it’s great to see a lot of people outside showing our cops [gratitude],” said Henson.
Officers of the Denville Township Police Department were present to direct traffic and show their appreciation of the community’s support.
“This rally has such a great turnout,” said Denville Detective Scott Tobin.
“Everyone’s here having a great time while keeping it safe as they support our department.”
