WARREN, NJ - Warren is now showing support for its police department with lawn signs popping up throughout the Township thanks to the Warren Township Honorary PBA.
“During a time of turmoil and unrest in our country where many police departments and officers are being vilified because of the actions of a few the HPBA was looking for a way to express our support and admiration for our officers,” said Foster Cooper. “I feel very lucky to be part of a community with an outstanding department and officers who protect us every day. I spoke to the Chief and he thought it was a great idea and then proposed it to our board where it was unanimously approved.”
“ I, along with all the Warren Police Officers truly appreciate receiving public support from our community during these times,” said Warren Township Chief if Police William Keane. “I’d like to thank the members of the Honorary PBA for their constant show of support. The gesture of displaying lawn signs to publicly express support of Warren PD is a morale booster for all of us here in the department”.
Cooper will be at the Municipal parking lot on Sunday, Sept 27 from 3-5 to distribute signs while the supply lasts. There is no charge for the signs but a donation to the organization would be appreciated, he said.
Background on the HPBA:
The Warren Honorary PBA is an organization of ~60 citizens and its charter is to help support the Police department through various means. They raise funds and have used them over the years to purchase bullet proof vests, outfit the squad and training rooms in the department with additional equipment not in the municipal budget. They also helped with the funding for our K9 officer Onyx, support the D.A.R.E program, Police Explorers program, the Police Unity Tour, dress uniforms for formal police events and many other ways to support the morale and well being of our Police.
