On Friday, Dec. 8, officers from Stafford Township, Beach Haven, Harvey Cedars, Long Beach Township, Ship Bottom and Surf City took part in the 39th Annual Police Memorial Service. “This tradition, started by Stafford Police Chief Larry D. Parker in 1978, honors the memories of those having worked in the police service who have passed on,” the Stafford Township Police Department explained on its Facebook page. Following a ceremony at police headquarters in Stafford, the officers proceeded to cemeteries from Tuckerton to Barnegat to lay Christmas wreaths at the gravesides of those officers and police civilians to whom they paid tribute.
