A controversial yet very successful deer culling program was developed in the community that now is a model program throughout Morris County. Our agency was awarded a federal grant to begin School Resource Officer (SRO) program at the Frelinghuysen Middle School. The State of New Jersey introduced the new Alcotest system and our agency was selected to be a part of the pilot program for this project. We purchased a Live Scan fingerprint system that allows us to eliminate the need for ‘ink’ and an immediate means to identify individuals by their electronic fingerprints.
