About the JCPD-DBA: In July 2009, one day before his 37th birthday, Detective Mark DiNardo, a 10-year veteran of the Jersey City Police Department died after being shot in the face in an act of bravery, while confronting two armed robbery suspects. At the time of his passing, Mark left behind three children under the age of five, and his wife, Mary.
It was this tragic event and sudden loss of a detective, husband and father that prompted the establishment of the Fallen Officer’s Fund. The purpose of the fund is to put survivor benefits in place for the loved ones of the sworn law enforcement officers, who have paid the ultimate sacrifice when bravely serving in the line of duty.
