Farry Holds Ceremony for Highway Dedication Honoring Local Fallen Officer
1/13/2012

LANGHORNE – In honor of the late Middletown Township Police Detective Christopher Jones, Rep. Frank Farry (R-Bucks) will hold a ceremony on Thursday, Jan. 19, at 11 a.m. at the Middletown Township Municipal Building, to unveil road signs, designating U.S. Route 1 in Bucks County from the Philadelphia line to the Delaware River as the Detective Christopher Jones Memorial Highway.

In remembrance of Jones, Farry sponsored a resolution, which was unanimously approved by the state House, and signed into law by Gov. Tom Corbett, in July 2011.

“I am very pleased that this bill received unanimous support from members of both chambers of the General Assembly and our governor,” said Farry. “Naming the highway in Detective Jones’ honor commemorates his commitment and selfless service to our citizens.”

Jones, a 10-year veteran with the Middletown Township Police Department, was struck and killed while conducting a traffic stop on Route 1, near the I-95 interchange. As he was walking to his patrol car, two cars collided and hit his vehicle, which then struck him. Jones was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later. He left behind a wife and three children.

In accordance with the resolution, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will post signs displaying Jones’ name along the highway.

“Chris was a dedicated public servant who lost his life in the line of duty. This legislation and the unveiling ceremony is a small gesture to show his family that we are grateful for his public service and their sacrifice for our community,” Farry noted.

The Middletown Township Municipal Building is located at 3 Municipal Way in Langhorne.
