The association is always proud and happy to know when a member receives an award or special recognition. This one is quite unique as the award is being given by an organization 1/2 way around the world to long time supporter and NJAALEOA member, retired supervisory US Air Marshal Tom Masters. Tom will next week fly to South Korea to receive "The Exceptional Korean of the Year "award by the Global Journalists Club of Korea. In part Tom will receive this prestigious award because of his "service to the US community and recruitment of Koreans Americans, specifically into law enforcement and ASIAN Americans, generally." Congrats Agent (ret) Thomas Masters, well deserved!

Please note the attached photo. Two of our members travelled to Washington DC to attended this ground breaking event, NJSP Trooper G. Hong and our OEM Director Jamie Yeh.

On April 10, 2016, The Taiwanese American First Responders Benevolent Organization was formally established and recognized at a diplomatic ceremony in Washington, D.C. Founder & President Fung and Vice President Lee provided the delegates and volunteers with a presentation and mission of the organization.  
Among the law enforcement and homeland security attendees included Lt. Col. Lin from Taiwan National Police Agency, Dep. Federal Security Director Mildiner from Transportation Security Administration, Trooper Hong from New Jersey State Police, Detective Yu from Montgomery County Police, and OEM Director Yeh from New Jersey Asian American Law Enforcement Officers Association.



Several members of the association a few months ago participated in a national scale project by the distinguished Vera Institute. Earlier this year the publication was released with the approval of the US Attorney General Loretta Lynch. This project deals with current real time policing issues. Whether law enforcement executives want to acknowledge it exists or believe their jurisdictions have absolutely no need to address the issue of being more effective at community policing  maybe just maybe everyone should at least read through these guidebooks. From the 1st line patrol officer to the person with all the stars on their shoulders and scrambled eggs on their hats should at least read through this. I suspect community leaders, educators, criminal justice majors and John Q. Citizen will be able to take something away from this read. Early feedback from law enforcement personnel have been very positive.

On a personal note I would like to thank those officers from the association for taking part in this project. I would also like to thank the Vera Institute  for including Asians within the context of the word "community" when often Asians are for whatever reason are left out of the conversation.  Please take a period of time and look over the guidelines. The URL noted after the press release will lead you to the text. For a written copy of the guidelines please contact the Vera Institute.

There is always a bad guy out there every single day that will try to kill a sworn law enforcement officer. Prince William County Police Officer Ashley Marie Guindon made the ultimate sacrifice while performing her sworn duties. She wasn't out on patrol one week before the scum fatally shot her.  May you rest in peace Officer Guindon.

On December 21, 2015 members of the NJAALEOA, Sgt@ Arms, Raymond Alfaro,  NJAALEOA OEM Director Jamie Yeh and the undersigned attended the press conference held by the honorable NJ Attorney General John Hoffman. The press conference held at the Rutgers, Piscataway campus duly noted more and more law enforcement departments are taking advantage of a  state asset forfeiture based grant as well as a federal grant program to implement a body cam program within their departments.  The association has advocated for the use of body cams for many positive reasons such as  the interests of law enforcement and the public are preserved in video. As it is said, "One picture can equate to a thousand words."  The response from the membership and supporters of the association has been overwhelmingly positive in regards to the issue of body cams. The association continues to strive to have organizations known to the association make their thoughts, concerns or  comments known to us in regards to this issue or others. It is important to have the Asian American community as well as the community at large know what those little boxes attached to the shirt of a law enforcement officer are and what the purpose of those boxes are. Some law enforcement executives in attendance at the conference but not pictured above were County Prosecutors Grace Park and Andrew Carey, Chief of Detectives J. McCabe, Rutgers Police Captain Ken Cop, Middletown Deputy Chief Robert Stefanski, and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thompson.




On December 7th 2015 several members of the NJAALEOA attended the graduation of the 2015 Fall session of the 2015 Law Enforcement Career Development Course.  The program which is the only one of its  kind anywhere in the state of New Jersey was held at the Morris County Public Safety Academy. Approximately 60 college attending students attended and successfully completed the 10 week program. NJAALEOA members Federal Air Marshal supervisory agent George Parker, NJAALEOA President Joseph Luistro, Federal Air Marshal supervisory  agent (ret) Tom Masters and NJAALEOA 2nd Vice President Neel Patel were among other law enforcement professionals giving mock oral interviews to the graduates before the actual ceremony began. Just before the handing out of the certificates to the graduating students unbeknownst to all in attendance except Joe, Neel, myself and
one Suzanne Ceravolo the Director for the Center for Internships and Career Development at Drew University, the NJAALEOA was going to present the Director of the program Morris County Undersheriff William Schievella  a plaque. The plaque recognizes Undersheriff  Schievella's   work he does for the program he developed, the tremendous  work he does for the law enforcement community and the huge positive work he does for the public. The name William Schievella has been mentioned within many NJAALEOA e-mails, for he is an avid supporter of the NJAALEOA and we are proud to call him a friend and brother officer.

Congratulations to the 2015 Fall graduating class,
Thank you for all those including the educational partners of the program that make this program one of a kind and the success that it is....and lastly thanks to one unique individual....... William Schievella

 On October 16, 2015 at the beautiful Imperia ballroom, Somerset County the association held another Meet and Greet where members, and others have the opportunity to hear executive law enforcement officials speak on several topics including but not limited to leadership skills, oral interviews, resumes, what hiring law enforcement officials look for at the municipal, county  levels and the "do nots" of interviewing and essay writing. The lessons learned at the no cost event would  literally cost hundreds of dollars  via a private entity. A most gracious thank you to the panelists and the members of the Chery Hill Police Department who were present recruiting and offering some well stated advise.

There is no doubt in my mind many have forgotten what happened and the significance of September 11th. Please take a moment ,one moment out of  your day today to pause and reflect of  that day in September of 2001 where thousand of innocents were slain and hundreds made the ultimate sacrifice to save many.



Policing has its benefits. 
Recruitment, age does not matter
Making for a good day to those we serve, one small person at a time
Having our citizens know they are safe and secure, one shiny badge at a time.

This has happened in the past and it will happen in the future, a reason for law enforcement to video  their own actions now in days. People see and hear things differently, whether intentional or not.

On Monday April 27,2015 yours truly traveled to the Morris County Police and Fire Academy as I was honored and privileged to speak on behalf of the NJAALEOA before the graduating  class of young woman and men who took part in and past the Law Enforcement Career Development Course. As I looked out to the audience of graduates from the dais I was humbled to know that despite the recent intense hatred of law enforcement by organized thugs, punks and the like, there were young adults striving to become a member of blue  each knowing one day they may have to but themselves in harms way to protect others. These graduates reminded me of many of our associate members of which some are graduates of this course and they too know our job is one that in a split second  things can change for the worse. 
This is an amazing program. The powerhouse of law enforcement officials and on the dais and university administrators in the front row was to say the least most impressive. The most impressive of all is who in the world could produce this one of kind program ,bring  together an array of well respected law enforcement officials to teach the course as to give these young college adults a real sense of what lies ahead for them in the law enforcement community? All NJAALEOA members and supporters have heard his name on a number of occasions by the association.  He is a great supporter of the NJAALEOA. He is a long time multi decade friend of mine. He is none other than  Morris County Undersheriff William Schievella.  Undersheriff Schievella spoke in part of the diversity of the graduating class and as I looked at the faces of those in the audience how true his words were. A diverse, educated, smart  law enforcement community... that's a good thing for all concerned.
 
I was going to speak about how not everyday will be safe free and  keeping public order is not the easiest thing to achieve in a world whose population is mixed with outright lawless people. This was too happy of an occasion to speak of a lesson they all will learn in the future when they put on the "blue".
I spoke about the NJAALEOA and emphazied if the NJAALEOA could be of assistance to anyone of the graduates all they has to do was to reach out to their Executive Director of the program Undersheiff Schievella. The keynote speaker was Deputy NJ Attorney General Wanda Moore who spoke upon several issues using a video presentation. It was an excellent presentation.
 
One of the remarks by Under sheriff Schievella was how important networking is to the law enforcement community. How true. The NJAALEOA is proud and honored to network with Undersheriff Schievella and the programs he produces for the good of so many. Last night (4/28/15) was a good night for our future in law enforcement , those highly regarded within the law enforcement community, the educators in attendance, the families of the graduates and myself. Why, for so many reasons.... but one particular  selfish reason comes to  mind.  For one night, this  night the good that is within the law enforcement community shined and shined brightly without one word from a cop hater,or a puck that wishes death upon us everyday   because unfrotuneately  a few did wrong while  the vast majority, the huge majority in law enforcement day in and day out 24 hours a day protect and serve as they are sworn do until they hang up the handcuffs and call it a day 20, 25, 30 years down the road.  This was a good day for me, this was an excellent day for me and I thank the graduates, the law enforcement professionals , the educators at the ceremony  and  especially one very special person who does so much for so many,..... one  William Schievella.

A New York City Police Officer died today.            
Words that we have heard too often during our careers but never get easier to hear. Police Officer Brian Moore was just 25 years old. He came from a family of Police Officers as many of us do.
He died protecting and serving the community of the 105th Precinct and the citizens of this city. What does that mean????
It means he became a Police Officer for the same reason most of us did......not just to protect and serve but to be part of something true, something good, something honorable with others that believe in the same thing. As the son of a Police Officer, I grew up wanting to follow in my father's footsteps. I wanted to make a difference in a little piece of the world. After nearly 28 years, that sentiment has not changed.
I come to work and I am constantly amazed at the things that members of the Juvenile Justice Division do everyday. From assisting invesitigations through social media to putting events and programs together for young people throughout the city. We handle demonstrators with professionalism and respond to serious situations ranging from suspicious DOAs to police involved shootings.
Police Officer Brian Moore died doing what you all do everyday.....being a Police Officer.
We all have the ability to do something everyday because we are Police Officers. Opportunity confronts us dozens of times a week to make a difference in someone's life. We don't have to change the world alone but collectively we can change hundreds if not thousands of lives.
Police Officer Brian Moore died doing what he believed in. It is up to ALL OF US to continue in that tradition.
Please keep the Moore family in your prayers and dedicate everything you do at work this month in honor of Brian.
"A Part of America Died"
S omebody killed a policeman today, 
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
will be buried with him at his side.
T he suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
and spend many long, lonely nights.
T he beat that he walked was a battle field too,
just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
to his name they will add a gold star.
Y es, somebody killed a policeman today,
in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
a cop put his life on the line.
N ow his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
and he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call, of himself gave his all,
and a part of America died.

On May 6th, 2015 Detective Laila Cristobal of the Passaic Police Department was promoted to the rank of Police Sergeant. Sergeant Cristobal is a long time member of the NJAALEOA, who started her law enforcement career almost 15 years ago. Laila is one of the very few Asian American female officers who are supervisors within any New Jersey police Department.
If one were to count on one hand the number of supervisory police personnel who are of Asian American background and female in New Jersey, one would have fingers to spare.

 

Congratulations to Laila Cristobal for her promotion to the rank of Sergeant within the Passaic Police Department.

This is interesting, all the guest speakers are powerhouses including our own Tom Masters.
Not sure if open to the public  but if interested the association can ask NJAALEOA member and a Professor at Drew University if members may attend.

New York City Police Officer Brian Moore saw something a thug was doing around his waist band, He saw something most people would not think twice about. But not Police Officer Brian Moore.,there was something suspicious about the actions taken by the thug and the plainclothes anti crime officer knew it.
The thug also knew he was in the presence of a police officer and reacted as the career criminal that he is. He without regards for life as he had done before,he took a gun from his person and shot Officer Moore in the head. Brian Moore fought for life for two days until the result of the gunshot wound he took at the hands of the thug was too much and he past on to be along side St. Michael and I am sure many  other brave souls. No marches condemning the actions of the punk who happened to be Black, no destruction of property , no burning of vehicles, no throwing of rocks and stones by civilians or anybody else. None of that. Just a long, line of blue, two rows of blue saluting a hero as he past by in an ambulance for a trip to a funeral parlor. All at attention, all silent  all respectful to a person who wanted and did make a difference to the people of New York City. Rest in Peace Officer Brian Moore..........  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsCp5LG_zNE

On the flip side, a rush to judgment of racial profiling of police by a current known actress is blown out of the water when a video clearly displays no such action occurred.  The officer could have suffered a lot of grief  had it not been for the video. The officer in fact was by far courteous and professional in his handling of the incident.
 
Two videos with law enforcement personnel involved, two different outcomes.
If you had to choose , which video would you be in?





 
A happy moment, Congratulates to Detective Lieutenant Dennis Lam upon his recent retirement from the Madison Township Police Department.  Detective Lieutenant Lam a well respected police commander and community leader I am sure will be missed in Madison. The NJAALEOA is extremely proud to have Dennis as a member and we hope he will mentor upcoming rookies that may one day  fill his big shoes as a knowledgeable , well respected police commander. Best of luck to Detective Lieutenant Dennis Lam!!

 The following was received from our brother and sister fraternal  law enforcement organization from across the river. As noted the proceeds to the journal will be given to the parents of Detective's Liu.  Click here for more info.

This will also be sent to corporate entities as well as out of  state law enforcement personnel If you or an associate you know can assist please do so. Tickets to attend the event is sold out with a waiting list being used. The purchase of a  journal ad  is  way of showing your support to law enforcement and to Detective Liu's family

The noted  above attachment is a way of donating to the families of Detectives Liu and Ramos. The association has not heard back from the NYPD AJS in regards to a trust fund for the families. Most times it takes several weeks to accomplish a trust like that. The tee shirts which are twenty dollars each as indicated will have the proceeds go to the families of both detectives. Detectives Liu and Ramos were  assigned to the 84 precinct at the times of their pasting. There is no notion of civilians purchasing a shirt.






Update: Any donations for the Liu family can be sent to our PO Box. NYPD Asian Jade Society P.O. Box  969 Peck Slip Station
New York NY 10272
 
Checks Should be made out to the PO Wen Jian Liu family C/O NYPD Asian Jade Society

NYPD Detective is laid to rest today 1/4/15, a few days after his partner NYPD  Detective Ramos was laid to rest at the same cemetery. The association has received numberous photos of the funeral detail from association members who attended the funeral. In honor and remembrance of Detectives Liu and Ramos the association will post photos in a special section of  the association websites. 
 
Today, in the New York Times, a Sunday front page article focused on  Asians- Americans in law enforcement and  the NYPD. The article ( video version) also included headline input from NJAALEOA President Joseph Luistro  and a quote from yours truly (print article). The print article headlined NYPD Detective (ret) Tommy Ong who is now a PI. Tommy continues to be a positive force in promoting "the job" NYPD and is often times at NYPD AJS events with camera in hand. It is the hope of the association that the New York Times article written by David Chen and video, produced by Channon Hodge  promotes the fact the fabric of professional law enforcement in this country and state and should  consist of  individuals of not just one background but of several, including but not limited to Asian Americans.

The following attachment is the bio of Tunnel and Bridge Officer Thomas Choi. As mentioned in an earlier e-mail his passing is a result of a line of duty injury which left him a coma that he never came out of.
RIP Officer Thomas Choi.
 

 
*****************************************************************************************
 The association has received a number of photos taken before, during and after the funeral of slain NYPD Detective Liu. The association will send out a few photos in a future e-mail but will have many others displayed on a special section of our websites. Many NJAALEOA members attended the funeral and wake to pay respects to Detective Liu and his family as they did during  Detective's Ramos's wake and funeral. It must be noted that the NYPD Asian Jade Society held a gathering of law enforcement  personnel from around the country who are members of the National Asian Peace Officers Association as to one final time, as a group, pay their respects to hero cop.... NYPD Detective  Wen Jian Liu. The NYPD Asian Jade Society deserves  kudos to have such a gathering  at a  Brooklyn restaurant for over one hundred law enforcement personnel at their own expense. 
 
*************************************************************************************

The following are photos taken of NYPD Detective Liu's wake which was held in Brooklyn, the same location where the funeral for the Detective will take place. These photos were taken by NJAALEOA member , avid supporter David Lin.  An additional e-mail will follow with photos taken by David.

 


Around 2000 hours (12/20/14) the Police Commissioner of the New York City Police Department held a press conference and in detail spoke of the execution of two members of the force, Police Officer Ramos and Police Officer Liu. at the hands of a punk, scum, ganged up, coward. As indicated by Commissioner Bratton, the two officers did not have a chance to respond to the deadly threat posed to them while they were on duty, in uniform and doing what they were sworn to do while in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn.  It was noted by the commissioner that the scum probably traveled from an out of state jurisdiction and purposely traveled to Brooklyn intent on killing New York City Police officers this day.
 
Officer Liu from sources has indicated he is a member of the New York City Police Asian Jade Society, our brother organization across the river. Non the less these are our brothers, Liu and Ramos, in blue that made the ultimate sacrifice and on this day will not ever again come home to their families. 
 
NJAALEOA President  Luistro and I discussed this tragic incident that led to the death of Officers Liu and Ramos before the Commissioner's press conference. We cannot stress enough the need for all to be vigilant as best as you can though in this case this punk never gave Officers Liu and Ramos a chance to respond to his actions against them. Please be careful out there and to our associates if you see something report it.
 
The NJAALEOA mourns the loss of two  of our own in blue from the New York City Police Department.



T
his is from James Ng,  the current President of the NYPD Asian Jade Society. James is a Sgt. assigned to the Midtown Pct.
 
NAPOA President James Ng today issued a news release with the following statement:
“The National Asian Peace Officers Association mourns the death of one our own members from the local chapter of the New York Police Department Asian Jade Society. Our heartfelt condolences to the family of Officer Wenjian Liu, a 7-year officer who married just 2 months ago. He immigrated to this country as a teen from Toishan, a city in southern Guangdong province in China. His parents are ...understandably grief stricken over the loss of their only child.”
“At Woodhull Hospital, where Officer Liu had been taken after the shooting, I had the painful task of providing English translation to Officer Liu’s family. In the days ahead, we hope the outpouring of support and assistance from the National Asian Peace Officers Association and its 22 chapters across the nation will provide comfort to the Liu family. We shall deeply miss Officer Liu. Not only will we always remember you, but always, we will be very grateful to you for your honorable devotion and dedication to protecting our communities.”

Congratulations to Past NJAALEOA Ex. Bd. member and Jersey City Police Officer Joel Villabroza upon his promotion to Detective on 12/22/2014. Joel has been a long standing member of the association and it is a well deserved promotion.
