Every Friday, I take a moment to recognize the heroes of New Jersey Law Enforcement that get up every day to protect and serve our communities. Sometimes that duty takes them off shore and involves boarding a ship in motion to save a life. That was the case for three members of the New Jersey State Police Atlantic City Marine Services Station.


On Tuesday afternoon, Staff Sergeant Jaime Ablett and Troopers Dan Detullio and Bryan Davern jumped onto a moving ship a half mile off Brigantine. A man was reportedly unresponsive and the troopers got their in time to help an off-duty nurse resuscitate the man. Upon reaching shore, he was rushed to the hospital and is reportedly doing OK. Thanks to the fearless action of these Troopers, another person will live to tell the tale.

Another great example of the courage, training and conditioning of the brave members of the New Jersey State Police. Thank you to all who wear the uniform and sacrifice your own safety for the rest of us.
