"Our hearts are heavy with the news that Patrolman Melvin Santiago lost his life in the line of duty early Sunday, 07/13/2014.
Only 6 months on the job, Patrolman Santiago had already proven himself to be a proud member of the Jersey City Police Department.  Patrolman Santiago knew the risks associated with this job, yet he put himself in front of danger in order to keep Jersey City safe.  Words cannot adequately express our feelings about this senseless tragedy.  We respectfully ask that every member of the Jersey City community join with us in giving our thoughts and prayers to Patrolman Santiago and his family."

“Yesterday, Patrolman Santiago was murdered in cold blood while protecting the people of Jersey City.

All indications are that his killer had set out to commit such a heinous act simply for the notoriety it would bring to him.

As law enforcement officers, we proudly represent and serve the blue line, metaphorically and literally. The fine men and women who serve and protect our community are the line of defense between good and evil. Patrolman Santiago bravely served Jersey City with honor, dignity, and courage, and his legacy will be marked as a true hero, such as he deserves.

We are disappointed by some media outlet’s decision to posthumously bring the murderer the attention he sought, as well as the uprising of a shrine. What kind of society do we live in where memorializing a violent murderer is acceptable?  Our hope in the coming days is that all attention will be directed towards the bravery of our lost brother, Patrolman Melvin Santiago.”

When Gov. Christie announced his illegal plan to slash pension funding, the unions representing public employees vowed to sue to protect our members’ rights.  Together, we are moving forward to file that suit quickly.

But you can do even more.  Under the law governing pension payments, the pension plans themselves have the right to sue if the state fails to make its full, required contribution. We are urging pension plan members to demand that the board of their fund sue on their behalf as well.

Please take a few minutes to send a letter to your pension board.  The legal language is provided for you.  You simply provide the requested information.  We will print and submit your letter to the secretary of your pension fund.

Choose your fund to submit your letter today!
