Public Safety Summer Camp
Part of Paterson PBA Local 1 Charitable Organization's vision is to reach as many children as possible and influence them with positive interactions that will lead them to be better adullts. This year was the first annual Public Safety Camp. A vision that came together with the collaboration of Paterson Police Director Jerry Speziale, PBA Local 1 Charitable Organization, Paterson Fire Department, Passaic County Sheriff's Department and Camp Hope's Director Karen Cisco. as a result 60 young individuals between the ages of 7-14 were able to enjoy an education and fun week. The activities consisted of police drills, crime scene scavenger hunts, fire safety, first aid, sports activities and swimming. This is just the start of hopefully many more similar programsfor our youth.
