Officers Honored as Police Unity Tour Stops in Linden

Union County Freeholders Angel G. Estrada and Christopher Hudak joined Congressman Donald Payne, Jr. and Linden Mayor Linden Derek Armstead in honoring Officer Angel Padilla, Investigator Pete Hammer, Investigator Mark Kahana, and Officer David Guzman during the Police Unity Tour stop in Linden. The officers were recognized for their actions involving the arrest of suspected bomber Ahmad Rahami last September and were awarded the medal of Valor by Chapter 37 of the Police Unity Tour.

Bicycling from the World Trade Center in New York City to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washing DC, thousands of officers participate in the Police Unity Tour to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty and to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum.
