HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The Hasbrouck Heights Police Department began handing out police trading cards on Friday at the anti-drug rallies at the borough's elementary schools.
After school, several children came to police headquarters to collect cards and received a bonus for wearing their bicycle helmets. Those students are Dan Powers, Tommy Stevens, Sonnie Perrelli, and Jonathan Cuccio.
The Hasbrouck Heights Police Department unveiled the latest police trading cards in early November 2019. It is the third generation of collectible cards that feature a member of the force. All officers will have cards with them. A student must approach each officer individually to collect their card. They can also stop at the station to see who is working. Any child that collects all 29 cards will receive a prize from the department's DARE program. Children have to see Sergeant Baker when their collection is complete.
"It's a great community policing way for the kids to meet their police officers," said Police Chief Michael J. Colaneri.
