The event was held at the Pines Manor in Edison, New Jersey. Among those being honored was Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae.

One of NOBLE’s main purposes is cultivating relationships between law enforcement and thecommunities in which they serve. The theme of the event, “Justice By Action”, focused on thoseimportant relationships, while ensuring justice is administered equally in the community. A major component of NOBLE’s community outreach is their dedication to influencing the next generation of law enforcement.

Former president of CPANJ, Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae, was honored by NOBLE with the Glenn D. Cunningham Law & Public Safety Award. That award recognizes an individual who has provided outstanding service to the public safety community. Prosecutor Webb-McRae was named the first African American and first female Prosecutor of Cumberland County in 2010. Her community outreach efforts in Cumberland County are substantial, as her office has hosted a Youth Outreach Symposium, an Anti-Violence Summit, and Substance Abuse and Gang Awareness Conferences for education professionals.
