Lower Township Police Department marked the 20th anniversary of the line of duty death of Officer David C. Douglass with a ceremony Feb. 18 at Town Bank Fire Hall. Douglass was shot and killed Feb. 18, 1994 while responding to a suspicious person call in North Cape May. Douglass was pursuing a burglary suspect on foot when the suspect turned and shot him. Douglass returned fire, striking the suspect in the hand and was able to make it back to his patrol car to call for assistance but did not survive the attack. The ceremony was attended by Douglass’ widow Debbie, their children and grandchildren and law enforcement officers from police departments across the county.
