Martin Comyn Obituary, Death – We regret to inform you of the passing of the officer who served as our department’s Senior Officer for a number of years Officer Martin Comyn of the Senior Grade Marty has lived in Northampton Township for a significant amount of time and considers it to be his home. In 1975, he made the first step in a dedication to our Township that would continue for the rest of his life.
In the year 1980, Marty was a part of the very first class to graduate from the Temple University Police Academy…
Marty worked for the Rockledge Borough Police Department as a patrol officer between the years of 1982 and 1985…
After that, Marty started his career in law enforcement in the year 1981 in Northampton, where he worked as a police dispatcher until the year 1986. After that, Marty moved on to another city.
Marty was awarded his commission as an officer the following year, in 1986, and he served in that capacity until his untimely death in 1987, which was the result of a courageous battle against cancer He volunteered his time in the Township in addition to the work he did as a police office Marty was an engaged member of the Northampton Twp. Volunteer Fire Company for the majority of the years between 1975 and 1995.
Twelve of the years he spent working for NTVFC were spent in Holland, where he was the Battalion Chief. In total, those years spanned 24 years. During that period, he served as the Deputy Chief of the organization.
A year ago, he took over as chief of the organization. Marty volunteered with the Trevose Heights Rescue Squad, which is now known as Tri-Hampton Rescue, from 1977 until 1979. At the time, the organization was known by a different name.
Marty was our department’s go-to expert on accident reconstruction for a good portion of his career…
Marty was a person who worked in the background and was an important contributor to the process of designing and developing the booking center for our department. He was ecstatic about the role that he and others, including Chief Clark, played in the development of our brand-new Headquarters and the contribution that each of them played in it.
Many junior officers have benefited from Marty’s extensive knowledge of accident investigations, which they will use throughout the course of their careers. These junior officers will continue to use Marty’s knowledge.
Marty is going to be greatly missed by all of us. Remember to keep Marty’s family in your thoughts and prayers, and thank you for your consideration.
