Harvey Cedars —
Police Officer Kevin Snow is the recipient of the Harvey Cedars Police Department’s Officer of the Year Award.

Police Chief Robert Burnaford said the award was started in 2006 by then-Police Chief Jerry Falkowski (now police director) and has been presented annually to the officer “who does an outstanding job in all aspects of their work and makes an impact both out on the street and inside the police station.”

“Officer Snow is the backbone of this department,” said Burnaford. “He takes initiative and gets things done without having to be asked. Kevin never wants credit for any of his actions and works hard every day. We are all very proud of him and he lives up to our department’s motto, ‘Commitment to Excellence.’”

“It’s an honor to receive this award,” said Snow. “I enjoy the work that I do because I love my job and I love Harvey Cedars.”

In addition, Burnaford and three officers received special commendations. Ptl. Mathew Chester received an exceptional duty citation bar for his work with the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Group.

Sgt. Steve Frazee earned a triumphant citation bar for finishing second overall in rifle qualifications at the annual Chief’s Match.

Burnaford and Pt. Benjamin Mrozinski each received certificates of lifesaving. Burnaford was cited for rescuing a swimmer in distress off the Salem Avenue beach and Mrozinksi was honored for successfully responding to a choking woman at the Maris Stella Retreat and Conference Center.  —E.E.
