Paterson Police Department – Officer of the Month

Officer of the Month

Every day, members of the PPD perform extraordinary acts in service to the community. But too often, these acts are not properly recognized. We are proud to launch a new initiative, where each month we recognize an employee who went above and beyond the call of duty. We want to ensure that Paterson’s Finest receive the recognition they deserve when they exceed our expectations and ensure that the public is aware of their distinct achievements. We hope that this will not only inspire future acts of kindness and service but also strengthen trust between law enforcement and the communities they protect.
