PO John Abraham Jr
Teaneck PD, NJ
End of Watch: October 25th, 2010
Ours is a profession of arms and we are employed by paramilitary government organizations throughout the United States. We all share a family bond forged by valor, common hardships, service for a higher cause, and the acceptance of the physical danger and mental risks that comes with this service to our community. And sometimes this service requires of us the ultimate sacrifice. Our first Honorary Membership in the society has been posthumously awarded to Police Officer John Abraham, Jr., Shield # 257, Teaneck Police Department, New Jersey. In his honor, we created the Police Officer John Abraham Scholarship Fund to benefit the children of our members. Officer Abraham made the ultimate sacrifice in his service to his community when he died in the line of duty in an automobile accident on October 25th, 2010. As PO Abraham is the first and only Malayalee American law enforcement officer to have died in the line of duty, his service and legacy is a big part of AMLEU. His story of sacrifice and duty will be prominently displayed as a reminder to our membership and to the community that we serve.
