Officer David McAndrew has been employed with the Morris County Sheriff’s Office for the past four years but being a Correction Officer wasn’t always his first choice. McAndrew, who like any other kid who played hockey growing-up, aspired to play one day in the National Hockey League. As time went on and McAndrew began his career with the Morris County Sheriff’s Office, he decided to use his talent to help others in the time of need.

David McAndrew proudy became a member of the New Jersey State Policeman’s Benevolent Association Hockey team.  A non-profit organization that represents over 33,000 men and women law enforcement officers from across the state.  The NJSPBA Hockey team regularly competes in charity hockey games against other law enforcement entities from near and afar in fundraising events. In fact, in their first year as an organization, the NJSPBA Hockey team raised over $24,000 for local charities.  The New Jersey Policeman’s Benevolent Association Hockey team also regularly organizes toy drives and delivers the gifts to local children’s hospitals.

“I am very honored to be part of such a great organization where I am able to pay-it-forward,” said Officer David McAndrew.

Morris County Sheriff Games M. Gannon said, “I couldn’t be prouder of Officer David McAndrew. He has proven himself to be a remarkable young man and a great asset to his department. There is nothing more rewarding than reaching out to help a family who is faced with the most unthinkable circumstances. My hat goes off to David McAndrew.”
