Livingston Police to Debut Fourth-Edition Law Enforcement Trading Cards

Police Chief Craig Handschuch shows the last set of Livingston Police trading cards from 2004 Credits: Joy Klapal

LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston Police Department will be issuing its fourth-edition law enforcement trading cards on Saturday, Feb. 13, from 1 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at a Police Headquarters open house.

The cards were last produced in 2004, so there is now a new generation of children who have yet to experience the excitement of collecting the cards. On the front, the cards will feature photos of Livingston police officers performing their duties or enjoying one of their hobbies. On the reverse side, the card will have the officer’s biographical data and a safety message.

The goal of this program is to reach out to as many children as possible and get the message out to them in a format in which they can identify while creating communication and trust. This program creates a productive dialogue between the community and police officers because children will be encouraged to approach an officer in order to collect the officer’s trading card.

Prizes will be awarded to children in kindergarten-through-sixth grade who collect cards in the series, although children of all ages are encouraged to collect the cards. Children who attend will be able to meet officers and collect their cards as well as enjoy light refreshments and meet McGruff the Crime Dog.

This year’s edition will be even bigger, with 81 collectible cards.

More information about the trading cards and prizes can be found at http://livingstontownship.org/police.
