Chaveirim Releases Statement following Arrest of Hit & Run Driver

Lakewood Chaveirim this evening released the following statement following the announcement of the Hit and Run driver who injured one of its members: Lakewood Chaveirim extends its deepest thanks to: the Lakewood Police Dept., Ocean County prosecutors and the county sheriff’s department, Police Chief Robert C. Lawson, Mayor Isaac Akerman, Police Commissioner Meir Lichtenstein, Police Sgt. Frank Work, Officer David Silberstein, and Officer Erik Menck of Traffic and Safety, and the numerous police officers and detectives who stopped at nothing to resolve this case. We would also like to thank the officers and crossing guards who spent hours out in the cold and snow distributing about 1,500 fliers with information about the accident.

We would also like to thank the local Policemen’s Benevolent Association, the Sergeant and Officers Association, and LCSW, for helping us offer a reward of $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver.

Special thank you to the residents of Lakewood, and the surrounding towns that have reached out to the Lakewood Police Dept. with numerous tips of vehicles matching the description.

  1. Wow! kol hakovad!

    As person of no organization affiliation, is there anything I can do to help the victim or his family?
    Is there any way I can be of assistance?

  2. lakewood chaveirim you guys are the best. Each and everyone of you deserve a special thank you for the huge effort you guys put in to find the perp. Especially L-29 which put in endless hours into this operation. And ofcourse the entire LPD for putting in so much time and investigating every lead they got, hats off to you guys!

  3. To #5 , I believe this thank you letter from chaveriem is meant to represent the entire community as a whole.

    It would be kinda crazy if every individual in town would “release a statement” today in honor of this case resolvery.
