Bergen County Law Enforcement Partners on “Chief for a Day”

Celebration Honors Children with Chronic Illnesses

  On Friday, June 6th, 2014, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office will partner with 18 local and county law enforcement agencies for the fourth annual countywide Chief for a Day celebration.

In partnership with local law enforcement and the communities of Bergen County, Chief for a Day is designed to brighten the lives of local children with chronic health conditions.  The inspirational program provides children and their families with a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of law enforcement. 


“It is great to see our local law enforcement agencies coming out to participate in this rewarding event,” said Sheriff Michael Saudino.  “As public servants, it is our duty to bring care to those who need it the most.  I look forward to meeting our honorary Chiefs.”


All participating police departments will sponsor a child from their communities.  This year’s Chiefs range in age from 6 to 15 years old and are being sponsored by the following agencies:


Bergen County Sheriff's Office

Bergen County Prosecutor's Office

Bogota Police Department

Carlstadt Police Department

Elmwood Park Police Department

Emerson Police Department

Englewood Cliffs Police Department

Fair Lawn Police Department

Fort Lee Police Department

Garfield Police Department

Montvale Police Department

North Arlington Police Department

Paramus Police Department

Park Ridge Police Department

Teaneck Police Department

Tenafly Police Department

Upper Saddle River Police Department

Wallington Police Department

Washington Township Police Department


On the morning of June 6, 2014, each child will receive his or her very own uniform before being sworn in as Chief for the Day.  After touring their local police departments, children will ride in patrol cars to the Bergen County Justice Center, where they will participate in a group ceremony at 11:30 a.m. 


At 12 p.m., a motorcade will leave the Justice Center en route to The Empire Club Restaurant in Little Ferry, where the new chiefs and their families will end the day with lunch, special guest speakers and a variety of fun activities and entertainment. 


At the end of the day, each child will receive a plaque commemorating his or her participation as 2014 Chief for a Day.


For more information or a specific timeline of events on June 6, 2014, please contact the Community Outreach Unit of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office at 201-336-3540.  For more information on a local police department’s schedule of events, please contact them directly.
