Lawrence Law is proud to support the Watchung Policemen’s Benevolent Association 2019 Fund Drive.
“We are proud to support the Watchung PBA. As the daughter of a retired police officer, a lawyer representing many people in law enforcement, and a resident of Watchung, I truly appreciate the mission of the PBA. PBA members not only protect us when on the clock, they support our community in so many ways when off of it,” said Jeralyn Lawrence, Founder and Managing Member of Lawrence Law.
Watchung Policemen’s Benevolent Association Local 193, an affiliate of the New Jersey State PBA, is the collective bargaining unit that represents the sworn law enforcement officers that serve the Borough of Watchung in Somerset County, NJ. In addition to the importance of labor representation, Local 193 is also involved in many local community programs. As a non-profit entity, support for these programs is made possible by donations from local residents and supporters. With such support, the Watchung PBA has been able to donate to the Adopt-a-Family organization every year during Christmas time, as well as yearly support for the Nick Magos Cancer Callout. They also make a yearly donation to Watchung Hills Regional High School Project Graduation, Watchung Police Department’s D.A.R.E. program, Watchung Little League, American Red Cross, the Special Olympics, the American Legion, Watchung Youth Services “Girls on the Run” Program, Boy Scouts of America: Patriots Path Council serving the Watchung area, and Girl Scouts of America: Washington Rock Council.
