Chief Battiloro, Captain Padovano, Officer Kenny, Officer DiBella, Chaplain Gibbons and Detective Bureau personnel visited the Westfield Area YMCA afterschool program at Tamaques School on June 19 to drop off goodies for the students including a police hat, bag, pencils, and junior police badges.

They also recognized the Westfield Area YMCA staff for their calm and professional assistance during an incident at the school during Y program hours. The Westfield Area Y staff also presented the Police Department with a basket of goodies including tie-dye t-shirts, bright orange sunglasses (as seen in photo) and other treats.

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.  Learn more about Westfield Area YMCA programs at
