STAFFORD, NJ - In honor of Stafford Township Police Officer Rick Drappi who died in an automobile accident on September 10, 1978, each year the police department selects one of their officers to receive the Henry "Rick" Drappi award. 

Patrol Officer Joseph Luna was the recipient of the "2016 Rick Drappi Award."

Ptl. Luna was chosen by a vote that all employees of the police department cast. Ptl. Luna was chosen because he is an officer who consistently displays the unselfish dedication, pride, and concern for others, the way that Officer Drappi lived every day.
