Past Events

The history of the Cape-Atlantic Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Service and Breakfast: On August 8, 1985, NJSP Det. Albert Mallen was gunned down during the execution of a narcotics search warrant. FBI Agent Jack Reemmer and Atlantic City Police Department Captain Vincent Premone thought that police funerals should not be the only time that law enforcement officers gather to honor officers who made the ultimate sacrifice. They concluded that there should be another occasion for them to come together as a unified police community. Together the two men founded the Cape-Atlantic Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Service and Breakfast.

The 200 Club-sponsored annual mass and breakfast embarked on a new tradition in 2001, as the honorees included firefighters and rescue workers as well as police officers. The response to this event was tremendous, as 645 attendees took place in paying tribute to our heroes. The same format was continued in 2002, resulting in a then-record of 766 attendees. A new record of 1,058 was set in 2009 with the appearance of former New York City Mayor and Presidential Candidate Rudy Giuliani.
