On July 11th 2016 at 7:30 P.M. Chief Kevin Sauter and members of the Colts Neck Township Police Department attended the Candle Light Vigil held at the Monmouth County Police Academy to remember the five slain Dallas Police Officers.
Words cannot truly express the feeling of love and togetherness that we have experienced tonight at the Candle Light Vigil. Seeing the overwhelming support for law enforcement from the public, first responders, and fellow brothers and sisters in blue, further proves that the strength of a community that comes together can get through the most difficult times.
As each officers final call was made to signify their end of watch, a wreath was placed in their honor. The heroism that these officers displayed touched everyone in attendance. The outpouring of support was felt by officers who were met with handshakes and hugs by citizens in attendance. Sergeant Michael J. Smith, Officer Brent Thomson, Senior Corporal Lorne B. Ahrens, Officer Michael Krol, and Officer Patricio Zamarripa… WE WILL NEVER FORGET!!!!!!
