This past January, The Bergenfield Police Department partnered with the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Community Engagement Task Force to sponsor a Youth Writing Contest for all Bergenfield School District 7th and 8th graders, as well as high school Jr's and Sr's.
We asked our youth, "Why is it important for members of the community to engage with local police departments?"
The first place winners each received a Chromebook, our second place winner received a Fire HD 10 Tablet(64GB), and each of our third place winners received a Fire HD 10 Tablet(32GB).
