All patrol officers and a majority of the civilian staff have received training as Emergency Medical Technicians.

Emphasizing the importance of education, fourteen officers have, or are pursuing, degrees in criminal justice. Eight of these officers have already gone on to receive their Masters Degree in Public Administration and Human Resources. All officers receive ongoing training in law enforcement practices by attending in-service training at the police academies located in Passaic County and throughout the state. Please remember to report any suspicious activity and to call 9-1-1 to report an emergency or 973-423-1111 for any other police matter.
