EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP–Going above and beyond the call of duty, four Egg Harbor Township Police officers stopped by a lemonade stand on Monday to show their support and enjoy a glass of refreshing lemonade, but they also spent some quality time with sisters Rebecca, 12, Annalena, 10, and Julia DiMaio, 6, and their cousins Emily, 9, and Elizabeth Suhr, 6. In addition to buying refreshments from the girls, Officer Michael O’Hagan took some time to speak to the girls about his K-9 partner Dozer. Fellow Officer Thomas Becker had some fun tracing with sidewalk chalk, while Officer Michael Santoro showed the girls his cheerleading skills and Officer Michael Niceta offered up the demonstration of some yoga poses.
“This is a true testament to the importance of community policing by law enforcement officers in Atlantic County. I applaud these Egg Harbor Township Police officers for taking the time to engage with youth in the community they protect and serve,” said Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner.
