NEW JERSEY – Colonel Patrick J. Callahan Monday addressed a contingent of troopers at Troop “D” Moorestown Station prior to their deployment to Washington, D.C. for the 59th Presidential Inauguration.
Forty-five troopers will be tasked with providing security for the inauguration along with law enforcement personnel representing federal, state, and local agencies from across the country.
Colonel Callahan reflected on the historical significance of being a part of the public safety mission in Washington, D.C. This contingent of New Jersey State Troopers will forever represent our organization at the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States.
Colonel Callahan then joined Lieutenant Colonel Jeff Mottley, Operations Branch Commander, in thanking each and every trooper for answering the call of duty, which at times requires our troopers to serve beyond New Jersey such as our deployments to Puerto Rico, New Orleans, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“We are honored to once again serve side by side with our fellow brothers and sisters from across the country during the Presidential inauguration week,” Callahan said.
