The 200 Club of Monmouth County honors LS Officers and LS EMS member.

On June 3, 2016, the 200 Club of Monmouth County honored Little Silver Police Officers Pete Gibson, Det. Greg Oliva, Peter Giblin and Little Silver EMT Christopher Faherty for saving a life. On May 28, 2015, they were summoned to a doctor's office for CPR in progress. The officer and EMT  established an airway through a nasal cavity and placed the victim on the floor, as to provide a flat hard surface conducive to performing CPR. After several minutes of continued CPR, a pulse was detected and the victim began breathing on her own.  The victim was transported by the Little Silver First Aid squad and MONOC paramedics to Riverview Medical Center without further incident.
