Fallen ACPD Officer Honored 15 Years After His Last Call
Friends, family and fellow officers of Thomas McMeekin Jr. came together to honor the life of the fallen officer who succumbed to injuries sustained while directing traffic at the corner of Atlantic and Chelsea Avenues in March of 2005. That corner of Chelsea Avenue is now known as Thomas J. McMeekin Jr. Drive.
The 28-year-old was a five year veteran of the Atlantic City Police Department (badge #702) and left behind a wife and a 2 year-old little girl. Atlantic City will hold a special memorial service in May to honor the lives of all of its fallen officers.
This Sunday at noon, the 200 Club of Atlantic & Cape May Counties will hold its annual fundraiser luncheon at the Tropicana Atlantic City to support local families of fallen first responders. Click here for more information.
