POLICE OFFICER BARRY ENG (Retired)
Barry Eng, age 94, passed away peacefully on December 16, 2020. He was originally from Boston, Massachusetts, resided in New York City, and retired in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
He enlisted in the United States Army and served his country during World War II and served in the army reserves. He rose to the rank of colonel.
Barry also retired as a New York City police officer with the 5th precinct. He was proud to be one of the founding members of the NYPD Asian Jade Society that was established in 1980.
With his military and law enforcement background, Barry was stern on the exterior. However, on the inside, Barry was a warm and kind soul. His family will miss him immensely.
Barry will be cremated and his ashes will be interred at a later date at the Arlington National Cemetery
Whether you are depressed,
going through a separation, having financial
difficulties, feeling anxiety, or anything else,
you are never alone. Nothing is ever hopeless.
We cannot hide from this incredibly important discussion. We must not pretend that these things don’t happen, or that such tragic deaths are somehow a fact of life. Importantly, we cannot sit idly by and just pray that they don’t happen again. We have to take action now. We have to discuss mental health.
Each of us is dedicated to the important business of fighting crime and keeping New Yorkers safe. And this is an immensely tough job. But your personal life can be even tougher. You may have no idea your office coworker – or your sector partner, even – is dealing with a challenge for which they see no positive resolution.
But you need to know, and always remember: What seems unbearable today, absolutely will be more manageable tomorrow. The first step toward a solution is speaking to someone. And if you’re worried about a friend or colleague, you can make a confidential referral to our Employee Assistance Unit on their behalf.
This is about keeping our family healthy – and about saving lives. Your jobs require that you spend so much of your work day helping people in crisis. But, before you can take care of others, it’s imperative that you first take care of yourselves.
