The lieutenant was in full dress uniform walking down the street when he observed two suspicious men behind an abandoned house on Washington Street.

NEW JERSEY STATE POLICEMEN'S BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION
NJ COP SHOT REWARD PROGRAM ACTIVATED IN TWO CASES

A total of $40,000 dollars is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects responsible for shooting at police officers in the past two days. The shootings took place in West Deptford and in Bridgeton. New Jersey State PBA President Patrick Colligan called the recent events “outrageous” and asked for the public’s help in finding the suspects responsible. President Colligan said, "For the past two days officers have been targeted for attack in this State and we will not stand for it. The shooting at police while in their headquarters or standing on a street corner is something that every law abiding citizen should be outraged at."

In each case the NJ COP SHOT program is posting a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects responsible.

In the West Deptford case, seven high-caliber rounds were fired at the police station at about 4:05 a.m. Tuesday in a drive-by shooting. A vehicle police describe as a small, black compact sedan is seen on surveillance video driving through the station's parking lot twice while the shots are being fired. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Michael Cramer at 856-853-4599, ext. 164. The total reward money in the case has risen to over $27,000 dollars including the money from the NJ COP SHOT program.

In Bridgeton, four officers came under gun fire at 1:12am Wednesday morning. Officers were on North Street conducting a follow up investigation when someone started shooting at them. All the officers took cover and were uninjured. The suspect fled on foot. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call (856) 451-0033 extension 0. The total reward in this case is $20,000.
Colligan said, "There is no way that someone does not know who is responsible for these crimes. It is my hope the reward will provide enough incentive for someone to come forward."

The New Jersey State PBA strongly condemns the decision of News 12 New Jersey to allow the comments of a woman identified as the wife of the cowardly individual, who shot and killed Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago early Sunday morning.

This woman’s comments were despicable in nature and only served to highlight the depravity of a small number among us, who prey upon the good people of our communities. Reporter Sean Bergin’s claim that her comments are an example of “what’s happening inside New Jersey’s inner cities” is preposterous and a poor excuse for airing these disgusting comments.  This report is, in our opinion, yellow journalism at its worst.
