                        HON. FRANK PALLONE, JR.

                             of new jersey

                    in the house of representatives

                      Thursday, November 16, 1995

  Mr. PALLONE. Mr. Speaker, I rise to speak about the end of an era on 
the Jersey Shore as our community pays tribute to Chief Anthony L. 
Paduano of the Neptune Township, NJ, policy department on the occasion 
of his retirement. Chief Paduano will be honored in a tribute at the 
Squire's Pub in West Long Branch, NJ, on Friday, November 17, 1995.
  Chief Paduano is a life-long resident of Neptune. He was born in the 
township and attended the local public schools. After serving as a 
paratrooper in the 11th Airborne Division, he joined the Neptune Police 
Department in 1961. Throughout his distinguished career, Chief Paduano 
has moved up the rank from sergeant to captain to deputy chief. He was 
appointed chief in 1983, commanding the 65-member police department.
  The list of Chief Paduano's accomplishments and associations is a 
long one: He has been involved with the Monmouth County Police Chief's 
Association, the board of directors of the Monmouth County Police 
Academy, the New Jersey Traffic Officers Association, the Monmouth 
County DWI Strike Force, the Monmouth County Prosecutors Advisory 
Committee, the Neptune Township PBA, Local 74, and the Fraternal Order 
of Police, Neptune Township, Lodge 19. In all of these endeavors, Chief 
Paduano has done far more than to just lend his name; he has been a 
leader, motivating others through his hard work and his solid example--
just as he did every day on the job at the Neptune Police Department. 
Chief Paduano is also a devoted family man, and it is my pleasure to 
extend my best wishes to his wife Nancy, their three children and two 
  It is an honor for me to pay tribute to Chief Paduano on the occasion 
of his retirement, as well as his having been named the 1995 Man of the 
Year by the Kiwanis Club of Neptune-Ocean Township. I hope the chief 
enjoys his retirement, but continues to lend his talents and energy to 
the betterment of our community.
