PHOTOS & FULL VIDEO (last updated 2:30 a.m.) Hundreds packed Town Hall this evening in show of support as 3rd Street was honorarily renamed Matlosz Way in memory of slain officer Chris Matlosz. Officials from the State Police as well as officials and officers from neighboring townships poured in for the dedication and unveiling.
Also this evening, Police Chief Rob Lawson presented plaques to the Police Chiefs of neighboring Townships who provided assistance during the tragedy.
Following the dedication in Town Hall, the crowd walked to the corner of Clifton Avenue and 3rd Street where the unveiling of the new street sign took place.
This was truly a very moving dedication. I’m still numb from the murder but this tribute is really helping the healing process.
Mayor Miller you are a man true to your word. You promised you would make this everlasting memorial for Chris and you wasted no time in getting it done. I hope nothing like this ever happens again anywhere in the world but if it does I sure hope they have a Mayor such as you that sheparded his flock through the entire ordeal.
Thank you for being there for all of us.
What a sad memorial to constantly be reminded of! This is what we need-to constantly remember just how dangerous being a cop is and just how vicious the streets are! All in all Lakewood did what they needed to do. The community and the PD came 2gether. Let us constantly remember Chris in our prayers. Kelly while Chris is still very much in your heart I hope your heart will soon mend!
If you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”.

This was a really moving ceremony. This should never happens again to any community. Thank you Mayor Miller and Township Committee for leading and sheparding the flock during this trying time.

What an absolute kiddush Hashem. Mayor Menashe Millier, Committeman Meir Lichtenstein all I can say is that the kiddush Hashem that you both have displayed throughout this tragedy is something you can be proud of. The citizens of this town are very fortunate to have you both leading the way together with our great police chief.
Gary, you spoke very well. Keep up the good work. You’re idea was a good one. Even the Mayor praised you for the idea. (I’ve never in my life seen a Mayor so real and honest. Totally giving you all the credit!)
