Gloucester Police Present at Services of Slain NYPD Officer
GLOUCESTER — Police Chief Leonard Campanello announces that The Gloucester Police Patrolmans Association represented Gloucester Police Department at the weekend services of slain NYPD Officer Wenjian Liu.
Five officers from Gloucester Police Department made the journey to New York to pay their respects to their fallen brother officer.
“We were very humbled to take part in the memorial services for Officer Liu,” Chief Campanello said. “I would like to thank the officers of the Patrolmen’s Association for making the trip to New York and honoring our fallen brother. We hope that our involvement, and the involvement of so many law enforcement agencies in this service, shows how police remain strong for each other and for the public in the aftermath of such a tragedy.”
