Lakewood Police Dept. Mourns the Passing of Legendary Askan

Lakewood Police Chief Greg Meyer released the following statement on the passing of askan R’ Yanky (Jack) Meyer z”l:
A personal friend of mine and the Lakewood Police Department, he will be missed by so many, our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends; Chief Gregory H. Meyer.
Yankie was a devoted member of Boro Park Hatzolah for around 35 years, a position in which he was fondly known as “B-41.” He also volunteered for Tomchei Shabbos of Boro Park, spending each Thursday night delivering food to dozens of families who didn’t have the means to buy what they needed.
Yankie was a chaplain in multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Port Authority Police, NJ Transit Police, the Office of the Medical Examiner of NYC, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, and was a senior NYPD Clergy Liaison, as well.
Yankie was trusted by all, including every NYC mayor and NYPD commissioner since the days of Rudy Giuliani, as well as high-ranking officials in the NYPD, FDNY, and many other agencies. In a world often in turmoil, Yanky was a voice of reason, calm, and respect, and all admired him for that.
