The bond that links a family is not always one of blood. Law Enforcement Officers come from many different backgrounds, upbringings and experiences but are united by their willingness to answer the call to protect and serve their fellow citizens. Today we salute two of our Brothers from the Linden Police Department. Officers Angel Padilla and Peter Hammer Jr. certainly answered “The Call” yesterday morning when they were dispatched to what many would consider routine. However, they quickly realized it was anything but routine, when an unassuming sleeping man fired upon them. Officers Padilla and Hammer quickly took action and successfully terminated the threat and subsequently arrested a man alleged to have been involved in three terrorist attacks throughout New Jersey and New York.
