Today, we mourn with the citizens of Dallas and the families of the officers who were killed while carrying out their oath to serve and protect. When a police officer is killed in the line of duty, there is a solidarity of sorrow felt by all of those who work in public safety. We are mindful that our Salem County first responders and their support teams are sharing in that pain.

The Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders stands with our public safety community on this sad day. We express our sympathy and our deep gratitude to each of them for their hard work, personal sacrifice, and willingness to confront dangerous situations to protect all the people of Salem County. We recognize the superior level of professionalism they display, their vigilance, and their unwavering commitment to ethics and integrity.
