Jersey Troopers: Sacrifice at the Altar of Public Service by John E. O'Rourke

The New Jersey State Police is an organization rich in history and tradition. Formed in 1921, the "outfit" has grown from a rural police force into one of the most diversified state agencies in the country. Sadly, this success did not come without a price; over thirty-five troopers gave their lives serving the citizens of the Garden State during the organization's formative years, from 1921 to 1960. This book honors their memory, telling the stories of these brave men, and upholds the state police's credo: It is the obligation-the Duty-of the living to remember-Honor-the dead. Let us always remember-Fidelity.
