Cops and Bobbers

Cops and Bobbers is a community policing event that is co-sponsored by the Hillsdale Police Department and the Hillsdale PBA. The purpose of this event is to use fishing as a tool to connect police officers and the youth of their communities. Officers work side by side with kids, helping them bait, cast, hook and release fish all while bonding and learning that they are not so different from each other after all.

Fishing teaches patience, ingenuity, preparation, and humility. It is an activity most anyone can do and afford. In the Cops & Bobbers program, cops and kids work and fish together which makes every day a good day.
NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s Game Wardens will provide demonstrations and education to any and all participants. Also, NJDEP will be providing their Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs trailer which contains fishing equipment to loan to those that have never fished before or are in need of equipment. 

Any questions can be directed to P.O. Ryan Norton at RNorton@hillsdalepolice.com.

Coffee with a Cop

On June 17th, 2017, the Hillsdale Police Department will be hosting "Coffee with a Cop" at Starbucks of Hillsdale from 11:00am-1:00 pm. The event is designed to be an agenda-free meeting between the residents and police officers, where informal conversations about what matters to the community can take place. The goal of the program is to build better relationships so the police and the community can work together to more effectively solve problems. Hillsdale Police Officers will be present to listen to any comments, complaints, or community problems that need to be addressed. In addition, if we are unable to address your issue during the event, we will ensure that the proper follow-up is conducted.

We are looking forward to this event and would like to thank Starbucks of Hillsdale for their continued support and donation of coffee for our event.

 

Coffee with a Cop

In June of 2013, the Hillsdale Police Department, adopted a new and innovative community outreach program. The program known as "Coffee with a Cop" is a program created to foster greater community relations. The "Coffee with a Cop" program originated out of the Hawthorne Police Department in California and has seen adoption across the country. The core idea of the "Coffee with a Cop" program is that residents can approach and interact with police officer in a friendly and informal atmosphere. Hillsdale Police Officers are on hand and prepared to answer any questions that a resident may have. In addition, Hillsdale Police Officers are prepared to not only research and respond to a problem, but they also have the necessary tools on hand to perform any number of referrals to other local, county or state agencies.  "Coffee with a Cop" is one of many additional community oriented programs that the Hillsdale Police Department undertakes on an annual or bi-annual basis. 

In June 2014, the Hillsdale Police Department completed its 3rd Coffee with a Cop event at the Starbucks of Hillsdale(located on Broadway). During the event, Hillsdale Police Officers met with over 30 residents with 3 referrals to other agencies. "Coffee with a Cop" is coordinated by Detective Adam Hampton and if you require further information you can reach him at (201)664-4200.
