As a municipal official, I have a variety of issues that need attention but in the wake of recent gun violence, the governing body continues to make public safety its top priority. Last year, Haledon was awarded a federal grant to hire an additional police officer. Only nine towns in New Jersey received the federal aid. While many towns are forced to lay off first responders, Haledon is looking forward to adding police personnel to ensure the safety and well-being of all residents. In addition, Haledon has actively encouraged resident participation in its Neighborhood Watch program which has proved to be very successful. Our police need residents to continue to be the “eyes and ears” of their streets, sidewalks and neighborhoods. As a result of our police officers’ dedication, and the information provided by citizens, several high profile arrests have already taken place.
