By Brick Police Department
BRICK, NJ – On April 27th BTPD Detective Sergeant Peter H. Ramsey #25 (Ret.) passed at 81 years old. Today we paid tribute to Det. Sgt. Ramsey and his wife, Caroline, and all of his family and beloved friends who are mourning their loss during this difficult time.
Seen in the video are Chief James Riccio and Lieutenant Joe Oliveri presenting Caroline with flowers, and I’m sure is a very welcome hug from the Chief.
“Sgt. Ramsey was a great man and a great police officer. It was an honor to know him and a privilege to have had the opportunity to work alongside him. Pete will be missed.” – Chief James Riccio
Det. Sgt. Ramsey’s Bio:
Pete was born and raised in Manhattan, NY, joined the U.S. Navy in 1956 and served in Japan and Hawaii in Naval Intelligence. After discharge from the Navy, he worked for RCA/NASA Division launching satellites.
A newly formed Police Department in Brick piqued his interest. He joined the force (Badge 25) on September 10, 1973. He was highly acclaimed for his expertise in police work, but more importantly for his strong presence in coaching and helping teens stay out of trouble and get back on track to become productive adults. He retired after 25 years of service as Detective Sergeant on December 31, 1994.
