It's #BlueFriday and we're proud to acknowledge and honor the courageous community leaders from the East Brunswick PD.

My friend Andi Ackerman who teaches at Central Elementary in East Windsor shared a pic of two cops helping the staff and kids complete a mural at the school. Officers Rob and Chris took time out of their busy schedules to lend a hand. Yes, it's a small gesture, and yes it's worthy of recognition. Just another reminder that our local officers are members of our community. They are our neighbors, friends and family members. They step up without looking for credit. When Producer Kristen called the EBPD to invite them on the show, they had no idea what she was talking about. That's the mark of a true hero.

Do the right thing, step up, and then don't worry about getting credit.
