That night would forever change the lives of officers and citizens alike in this community. Officer Mary Ann Collura, an 18 year veteran of the force, was beloved by many in the community and throughout the state. Her impact is still felt today as she has been remembered in many different venues including the formation of a Memorial Scholarship Foundation which has awarded over $13,000.00 in scholarships since her passing.

On Saturday, April 15, 2006 at 3:00 p.m. the brother and sister officers of Fair Lawn Police Officer Mary Ann Collura will honor her once again with a bronze statue which will be unveiled in front of our Municipal Building. This statue has been three years in the making and is the only statue of a female Police Officer who was shot and killed in our nation today.

The statue is of Mary Ann kneeling and speaking with two children. In 1999, Mary Ann came up with the idea of providing children with glowsticks at Halloween. She felt that if children could be better seen by motorists, there would be less chance of them being struck by vehicles. Her idea has spread to our entire county and over 60,000 glowsticks were distributed this past year in her memory. The statue has her presenting two children dressed for Halloween with glowsticks. The little boy is dressed like a firefighter and the little girl like a police officer.

As people pass our municipal building they will forever remember this great police officer and her love and dedication to the residents of our community, state and nation. We would like to invite your members to attend our dedication ceremony on Saturday, April 15, 2006 at 3:00 p.m. (8-01 Fair Lawn Avenue, Fair Lawn, NJ 07410). As always, thank you for your tremendous support of Law Enforcement Officers.
