Orange County in cooperation with the NYPD is advising Town and Village of Monroe residents that traffic in that area will likely be heavy during the services for NYPD Officer Brian Mulkeen on Thursday, October 3rd and Friday, October 4th.
Mulkeen, a 2004 Monroe-Woodbury graduate, was shot and killed during an arrest in the Bronx early Sunday morning. Officer Mulkeen, 33, started his career as a dispatcher for the Town of Tuxedo Police Department. A wake for Mulkeen will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 3rd at Smith Seaman & Quackenbush Funeral Home on Maple Avenue in Monroe.
A funeral mass is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart Church on Still Road on Friday, October 4th. Due to anticipated heavy traffic, the NYPD in conjunction with municipal leaders are advising any Monroe residents to anticipate and plan to accommodate for significant delays between 7:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Friday in and around those areas. It is highly suggested on Friday, October 4th that residents leave the area for work prior to 7:00 a.m. to avoid major delays.
To accommodate the funeral detail, please be advised that Town Hall will be CLOSED on Friday. However, please note that all Town Hall employees will work until 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 3rd in an effort to accommodate our residents' needs in light of Friday's closing. In addition, the Senior Center will be closed on Friday as it will serve as a transportation staging area.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Please continue to keep the Mulkeen family in your thoughts and prayers.

The Town of Monroe community shares in the sadness of the untimely passing of NYPD Officer Brian Mulkeen who was killed in the line of duty on September 29, 2019. A graduate of Monroe-Woodbury High School and Fordham University, at 33 years young, Brian represented the very best of our community.
Brian will forever be remembered as a hometown hero who answered the call to protect and serve. His selfless actions are a reminder of the bravery our law enforcement officers exemplify and the dangers they face on a daily basis. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Mulkeen family, especially his parents, Camille and Brian, as well as his siblings, Erin and Eric.
