Sayreville police officer displayed concern

This is a copy of a letter I recently wrote to Chief John Garbowski of the Sayreville Police Department.

I would like to commend one of your staff, Patrolman Barry Eck. He was of great assistance to me on Jan. 31.

My brother, who lived in Metuchen, was found deceased in his home by the Metuchen Police Department. Patrolman Eck was dispatched by the Sayreville Police Department to inform me of the grim news. His kindness, and most of all genuine concern, were most appreciated at this most horrific time. He went far beyond his call of duty in this time of great sorrow and shock. Again, my heartfelt thanks to Patrolman Eck, who has proven to be a great asset to the borough of Sayreville.
