This year marks the 16th year of our fallen brother Officer William “Nichie” Preslar’s death in the Line of Duty. He was a six-year veteran killed in a car accident on May 14, 2007, on New Egypt Road, when he swerved to avoid striking a deer and struck a tree. Nichie and his beloved wife Lisa together had two beautiful daughters, Julia, and Gracie. Nichie will always be in our hearts and we will never forget his ultimate sacrifice.
Survivor Lisa Preslar and her daughter Grace Preslar committed to riding in this year’s #policeunitytour which commenced in Belmar on May 9, 2023, where men and women in blue from New Jersey to California gathered together to ride for those who died. The tour honors all of our fallen officers and this year Captain Joseph Goertz was memorialized in Washington DC at the National Law Enforcement Memorial Wall as a line of duty death.
