Dispatch & School Crossing Guards

Our dispatch center and school crossing guards also operate under the purview of the police department. The dispatch center is now a shared service with Union County Police. It is responsible for receiving all 911 and non-emergency police-related calls and police, fire, and rescue squad dispatching.

Support of Governing Bodies

With the governing body's support, this department is committed to meeting the highest level of professional standards. We believe we can accomplish this by investing in the latest equipment and technology and investing in our officers and civilian support staff by providing them with the best available training.

I am incredibly proud of the professionalism of the men and women who make up this organization and their commitment to their community. - Chief Jason Massimino
