MILLBURN, NJ – Millburn Township has been in need of additional police officers as a result of recent retirements over the past few years and the Millburn Town Council filled this void by passing a resolution to swear in two new members to the department at its regular meeting Tuesday night.

Derrick Czupak and Robert Delgado, Jr., former police officers of the Newark Police Department, were introduced to about 40 Millburn residents and members of the Millburn Police Department by Chief of Police Gregory Weber before they officially assumed their new duties.

The need for more officers comes because of a somewhat high volume of retirees over the past few years in the departments, as explained by Millburn Assistant Business Administrator Alexander W. McDonald. Most recently, Anthony Magnotta and Peter Eakley retired from the force in 2011.

Both Czupak and Delgado were recently relieved of their duties serving as Newark Police officers because of budget cuts in the city, according to Weber.

Millburn Township Clerk Joanne M. Monarque read the oath of office before Czupak and Delgado, individually.  They then signed the certification that listed the duties and responsibilities that come with their new positions.

The Town Council unanimously passed the resolution to confirm these appointments.

The next Millburn Township Council meeting will see the first reading of the 2012 Municipal Budget according to committeeman Theodore Bourke. That meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 3 at 8 p.m. at Town Hall.

In other news, Millburn High School and Middle School students told the commitee about the Millburn Film Festival, a project supported by the Education Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills, will take place on Wednesday, April 11 at 7 p.m. at the Millburn High School Auditorium and on Wednesday, April 18 at 10 a.m. at Clearview’s Millburn Cinemas located at 350 Millburn Ave.

“It’s one thing to show your films to kids at school, but to have a lot of other people see them and create awareness for this is really special,” Millburn High School senior Matt Taylor said.

Taylor, who also assumes camera duties at Millburn Town Council meetings, will show a nine-minute short film at the event.

The event will also show narratives, documentaries, music videos and many other types of films, so long as it is the author’s original work.  A panel of five judges will evaluate the criteria of each creation and no more than five winners will be selected out of all the submissions.
