North Bergen Police Chief Robert Dowd and Public Safety Commissioner Allen Pascual hosted a special luncheon on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019 in honor of four township police officers who are being deployed overseas.
P.O. Eric Crafton, P.O. Joshua Nazario, SLEO II Rodolfo Velazquez and C.O. Alexander Sanchez will be serving as part of
Operation Spartan Shield and Operation Horn of Africa.
Among the guests was Velazquez’s wife, Melissa, and their four-month-old son, Marcus – dressed in baby camo fatigues.
Many members of the police department joined the event to convey their best wishes to the officers, who will each be serving overseas for about a year.
