James Agins Obituary, Death – Due to the passing of Detective James D. Agins, who had previously served with the department, the Princeton Police Department is delivering the statement today with a heavy heart. Detective James D. Agins has served with this agency for a considerable amount of time now. After serving in the United States Army as a paratrooper and a combat medic from 1964 through 1968, Det. Agins joined the Princeton Borough Police Department in 1968. Prior to that, he was in the military from 1964 until 1968. Between the years 1964 and 1968, he served in both positions.
Prior to that, he had served in the Army of the United States of America from 1964 to 1968. During that time, he had been stationed in the South. Between the years 1976 and 1994, he worked in a number of capacities for the community, and he did so while always ensuring that the overarching goals of the organization received his entire attention. He eventually became the leader of the group. Det. Agins was elected to serve in various leadership posts within the Princeton Police Benevolent Association while he was employed by the department. These duties included President of Local #130 and State Delegate.
Even after he had hung up his badge, he continued to be active within the police union, functioning as a liaison to the members of the force who had retired. This was despite the fact that he had been a police officer for many years. The cherished nickname “Jimmy” that he was given by his coworkers in the police department and that they fondly bestowed upon him will be mournfully missed by each and every one of them. His coworkers will remember him with affection. During this trying time, we are keeping his family and friends in our thoughts and prayers. We are thinking about and praying for them. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as we remember those who have passed on.
