This year marks the 13th 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. In 2017 was the unveiling of the highway that was dedicated by The Lakewood Police Department in Nichie’s memory.

Widow Lisa Preslar after the tragic loss, has inspired many through her strength and courage by formally being the President of Garden State C.O.P.S. for 5 years (link: Garden State C.O.P.S.), and has participated in the annual Police Unity Tour for 10 consecutive years. Lisa is raising their two beautiful daughters, Julia (18) and Gracie (17).  Julia is a college student and Gracie is a junior in high school.

Niche will always be remembered for his kindness and compassionate humor!
