Crime Prevention Awards: Honoring Community Leadership

The North Jersey Regional Crime Prevention Officers Association, under the leadership of Lt. Patrick Fay of the Hackensack Police Department, held its annual award luncheon in Teaneck, New Jersey on Friday, December 14, 2007. It was attended by numerous law enforcement officers from throughout New Jersey, as well as citizens dedicated to serving their communities.

The association upholds the principles of crime prevention which are inseparable from community policing:

  • Crime Prevention is a responsibility of all levels of government and linked with solving social problems.
  • Crime Prevention requires a central position in law enforcement and demands cooperation by all elements of the community.

The following individuals were recognized for their dedication to the community:

  • Steven Benvenisti, Esq.
    Citizen of the Year Award
  • Officer Gary Boesch
    Police Officer of the Year Award
  • Art Koster
    Citizen Appreciation Award
  • Vincent J. Bove, CPP

In an age where headlines continually resonate with violence, the revitalization of crime prevention and community policing principles demands a sense of urgency for its capacity to transform our nation.
