Jun 19, 2019

The 200 Club of Ocean County recently honored numerous police officers and other first responders for heroic deeds.

Beach Haven Police Officer Thomas Daly was cited for saving a swimmer from a rip current. In addition, Beach Haven police officers Ashley Stahl, Hunter Ellenberger and John Mitchell rescued a swimmer in distress.

Harvey Cedars Police Chief Robert Burnaford and Detective Christopher Oldham were honored for rescuing a swimmer caught in a rip current on separate occasions.

The 200 Club is a nonprofit charitable organization, part of a statewide network of similar organizations throughout New Jersey. Its mission is to provide for families of police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel.

The organization is made up of leaders of business, industry, labor, public service, education and other professions. Aside from providing financial assistance and comfort to families of law enforcement and first responders who are killed or disabled in the line of duty, it also raises money for scholarships for their children.

“The 200 Club is committed to scholarships, annual valor awards, promotion of public discussion and forums, recruitment and educational projects – all aimed at increasing the efficiency of law enforcement and public safety programs and winning public support for them,” the organization says on its website.
