New Jersey Asian American Law Enforcement Officers Association

Our organization consists of sworn law enforcement officers from various local, state and federal agencies and citizens who are supportive of Asian Americans in law enforcement as well as the law enforcement community as a whole. Our primary goal is to recruit qualified Asian Americans into law enforcement so that the Asian American community would be adequately represented in local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. We promote cultural awareness and tolerance to create a strong bond and a working relationship between law enforcement and the community it serves.

Never Forget 9/11

18 years, ago,  does not seem that long ago. Thousands died that day September 11, 2001. When you have a crappy day. close your eyes for a minute and think about being near the top of one of the towers. You know there is a raging inferno below you, no escape there. You manage to knock out of the thick pane window. Now decision time , with the outcome  being the same. Do you jump from the tower or stay on the floor as intense smoke and fire comes ever closer?  For 18 tears when it comes I think about it and before I make a decision I wake up in a sweat, heart racing ,blood pressure elevated and stare at the ceiling as I get mad that some bastard  foreign terrorists took the lives of many innocents with some of those left to make the choice mentioned above.  


So my friend when you think your having a crappy day, maybe, just maybe it is not as bad a day as these poor souls had on September 11, 2001. Please don't take a moment to remember what politicians say on this 9-11 Please, please think of the thousands of mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, grand fathers, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, boy friends and girlfriends that never did and never will come home from September 11, 2001. May God bless all those lost on September 11, 2001

Meet the Chiefs Night - April 16

Save the date. In the month of April the association will conduct another  MEET & GREET the CHIEFS. Executive law enforcement personnel meeting with those in attendance to address questions by you in a social setting one on one. The last program was a success and the expectation this will be a win win for those in attendance. It is not often one is able to speak to executive law enforcement personnel to address questions of recruitment, questions that may be of a personal nature or one that may address a community concern.
The organizations these outstanding law enforcement officials represent hire hundreds of sworn law enforcement personnel and related careers pretty much on an annual basis.
This your opportunity to meet face to face with these law enforcement officials to ask questions in regards to thier respective departments, hiring practices,  or what they seek in candidates for their respective departments. Questions of municipal, county and state law may be on your mind. Community policing on the local, county and state levels may be an issue of interest. This is a one night only opportunity that you may not have for a long time afterwards. The New Jersey State Police Recruitment Unit will also be present as  there is an expectation of many will be hired for the position of NJ State Trooper. Bring a few resumes, you never know. Dress is neat casual. Please make a copy of the flier for family members, fellow classmates or friends interested in the law enforcement profession . Admission is free.
UPDATE: It was a great event. Thanks to our special guests for being on the panel!! Next recruiting event in summer!! Pictures from the event as follows

Meeting with NJ AG and 5 county prosecutor

On November 1, 2018 the Executive Board of the association met with the  honorable New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal and a number of his staff.  Much was discussed including  issues that affect not only the community at large but also it appears to effect older Asian Americans. Also a list of questions that you the membership sent in to the association as well as those by supervisory law enforcement personnel was given to the Attorney General for review and response. The meeting by all accounts very went well.


At the conclusion of the productive meeting the Executive Board was honored to meet with and briefly speak with FIVE County Prosecutors, of which one is a long time supporter of the association and super person,  Mercer County Prosecutor  Angelo J. Onofri. The Ex. Board hopes to start and maintain a dialogue with the other four honorable County Prosecutors.

The meeting with the 1st Asst. Attorney General was held with NJAALEOA President Joe Luistro, Recording Secretary Grace Marotta and Pres. Emeritus Robert May. The association gave a synopsis of what the association has accomplished for the community and law enforcement over the years and what the association plans to  do in the future. 1st Asst.
