CRANFORD, NJ - In a continuing effort to build on community relations with the township’s youth, the Cranford Police Department recently upgraded its juvenile bureau police car.

Sporting Cranford Cougar colors, the upgrade is a result of local businessman, John Guempel of Eii Electrical and Mechanical Contractors.

Guempel spearheaded an effort to modify a traditional black and white radio car to a blue and gold school resource officer vehicle.  It can be seen throughout the township’s schools on a daily basis.

The Township of Cranford and Cranford Board of Education began its school resource officer program in 2014.  The initiative aims to bridge the gap between the township’s younger generation and local law enforcement.  The partnership between the police department and schools is symbolically displayed through this unique upgrade in the school resource officer vehicle.

Chief Wozniak thanked both Eii and John Guempel for its generosity in making this upgrade possible.
“My goal as chief has been to continue to bring our community together. When we can positively combine efforts of our township, school district and generous local businesses such as Eii, it speaks to the spirit of our community and the caliber of its people.”
