Just as the holiday season is ramping up, the Paramus Police Department was given the gift of seven new Class 1 Special Police Officers who recently graduated from the Bergen County Police Academy. 

The new part time officers attended the academy for more than three months and are certified by the New Jersey State Police Training Commission.

They were trained in first aid, traffic and crowd control, which comes is handy as the busy holiday season sets in.

“Special Police Officers play a vital role in facilitating the heavy flow traffic caused by holiday shopping within Paramus, which in turn frees up regular officers to handle crime and other emergencies,” said Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg in a release. 

Paramus PD plans to assign the new officers to the Traffic Division where they will assist with details such as street crossings, sporting events, concerts, fireworks and other town functions. They will also be used to assist the Police Department and Office of Emergency Management in time of emergencies such as hurricanes and other natural disasters.

“With these new hires the Paramus Police Department will have 17 part time Class 1 Special Officers,” said Ehrenberg.
