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.

Haledon Boys and Girls Club
October 30, 2014 Haledon Borough officials were notified that the Boys and Girls Club would cease operations effective November 30, 2014. This notification impacts parents and youth participating in sports programs and the after school program.
An announcement will be made in the near future regarding sports programs. The Haledon Governing Body members remain committed to offer varied sports programs for Haledon youth and apologize for this unfortunate service interruption.
