New Jersey Asian American Law Enforcement Officers Association
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.

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.

On August 3nd Friday  a few executive board members of the association had the opportunity to conduct a meeting with New Jersey 1st Asst. Attorney General Jennifer Davenport.  (Her bio is contained with the NJ State Attorney General website) Discussed where issues of mutual concern and specific issues the association addressed on behalf of our members and supporters including  but not limited to the recently developed school resource officer directives. 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. AG Davenport was given national and state wide materials that the association has been part of or started. The association also gave  her as a token of appreciation for all her  past, current and future work for the people of New Jersey  a statue of an ancient law enforcement  mythical being. The association is eager to continue  be part of the conversation when appropriate within the office of the Attorney  General as we were with the past two previous administrations.

World Trade Center Memorial 5k Walk/Run    4/22

On Sunday April 22nd the 5K World Trade Memorial walk/run and community day took place at the WTC. Some of the participants were members of the association including NJAALEOA President  Joe Luistro and his family. With all the fanfare sometimes the meaning and intent of the event can fall be the wayside. Thanks to three Port Authority Police Officers who were perhaps in grade school when the towers came down on 9-11-01 they showed Joe  and Millie's daughter( who was not born yet on 9-11-01) in a positive and understandable way why we have the memorial run and activities to honor all those lost including the initial 37 police officers that did not go home that faithful day.
Thanks to Port Authority Police Officer Aravinda Jayewardana, Obed Lopez and Mina Shenouda And thanks to Joe for taking photo of the memorial where James Nelson is inscribed in it. I met Jimmy when he was a rookie at the Lincoln Tunnel. He used to ride with me in my sector car when he had his meal break. Jim was a sponge when it came to learning the ways of a urban cop, firm but with respect. When we went to court his demeanor and manner of speech was not that of a rookie cop. It was evident his abilities would take him to later being an academy instructor. On 9-11-01 Jimmy and 36 other PA cops and over a hundred PA employees  never cam home that day.  Thank you Aravinda, Obed and Mina for keeping the memory of those lost alive for the next generation to remember and never forget.
