Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Officer Matthew Tarentino who was killed in a tragic accident on route 78 Tuesday morning.

He was a hero as are the men and women of the Summit Police Department who served honorably with him.  A credit to his community and department he will be remembered as a tireless public servant, husband, father and colleague.  Please help his family if you're able in this time of crisis by clicking here. No donation is too small.  We stand proudly with the men and women in New Jersey Law Enforcement and continue to pray for their safety as they stand up for us every day protecting and serving our communities.
