October 2011 PBA Member of the Month
Detective Jeff Welsh
Brother Jeffrey Welsh is one of those unsung heroes who diligently carries out his work with the finest of work ethics possible. He is a stickler for details and because of his attention to the minute details of cases, is able to solve many cases that others would have closed. Detective Welsh does not seek the spotlight, but quietly and efficiently carries out his work day by day.
Detective Welsh was instrumental in the investigation of the murder of Fair Lawn Police Officer Mary Ann Collura in 2003 and he has led the way in many high profile cases over the years. He is the senior Detective in the Detective Bureau and his expertise is sought out by junior detectives constantly. He excels in fraud investigations (i.e., banking, personal, etc…) and regularly works with the Secret Service and other government investigative agencies.
Detective Welsh is first and foremost a team player. Although he carries a very heavy caseload, he will always drop what he is doing to assist other officers or detectives in an investigation. His is a quiet, calm, and yet authoritative manner in which all involved are assured that everything that needs to be done in a case will be done.
A true gentleman.
Brother Welsh has been on the executive board of Local 67 for many years as our treasurer. He has coordinated our fund raising efforts and has always been a vigorous advocate and mentor to our membership. His advice and counsel are often sought by both senior and junior officers alike.
For his actions as an outstanding police officer, treasurer and overall advocate for the PBA and community, Jeff has been recognized as October's PBA Member of the Month.
