Two Names Added to List of Ocean County's Fallen Police Officers
Lakewood's Christopher Matlosz and Ocean Gate's Jason Marles among those remembered at Ocean County Police Academy ceremony
Police officers from Ocean County gathered yesterday at a somber service to honor the county's fallen police officers.
The annual ceremony was especially poignant this year. Lakewood Police Officer Christopher Matlosz was gunned down while on duty on Jan. 11. Ocean Gate Patrolman Jason Marles was killed by a drunk driver on his way home after his shift on Nov. 25.
Portraits of both officers were unveiled at the ceremony.
