All of Officer Harper's Loved Ones,
Graduated with Rich from NJ Police Academy Sea Girt back in the early 70"s. Always remember him as a good guy and team player. My sister lives in Brick so I connected with Rich and the other Brick Guys in the academy at the time. He will always be in my thoughts as will his family.
