The Bergen County Police Department and its PBA had special Easter messages today. And a former co-worker had some good news.
“Thank you for the outpouring of support and prayers. We have reason to believe that it is working,” Capt. James Mullin said, on behalf of the department.
“Although PO Breslin continues to fight for his life, we are encouraged by evidence that PO Breslin is staying strong,” Mullin said.
Meanwhile, PBA Local #49 President Vincent Sileo wrote:
“I’d like to take a moment to thank all of our Brothers and Sisters in Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, EMS personnel, Elected Officials, Family and Friends, News Media and the public for the tremendous amount of support that has been shown to our member Police Officer, Daniel Breslin, to his personal family and the family of the Bergen County Police Department.
“We have asked for prayers and your generous support continues to pour in to assist our needs,” Sileo said. “I am proud to report that your prayers are being heard and every little bit of positive news helps to keep our thoughts alive of a recovery.”
Breslin, a former South Hackensack police officer who joined the BCPD in 2010, sustained a severe head injury, a fractured skull and broken ribs that collapsed a lung. Yet some officers who’ve visited him this weekend at Hackensack University Medical Center said they’ve come away optimistically hopeful.
“Danny had some slight improvement today,” South Hackensack Deputy Police Chief Robert Licamara said this afternoon. “[His doctor] is pleased.”
“He’s such a great guy,” a municipal police officer from another department who visited Breslin told CLIFFVIEW PILOT . “And he’s tough, too. If anyone can pull through, it’s Danny.”
