RIGHTEOUS RIDE – Cyclists from several Union County municipal police departments, including Linden, Summit and Cranford, took part in this year’s Police Unity Ride, a four-day excursion from New York to Washington to raise awareness of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty and raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum. Above and above right, the tour made a stop in Linden on May 9. Right, a 13-person contingent from the Summit Police Department dedicated its ride to Summit Detective Matthew Tarentino, who died on I-78 while driving to work last May.
