Chief For A Day 2016

On Friday, June 3, 2016, Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino was joined by two dozen local and county law enforcement agencies to participate in the Sixth Annual Bergen County "Chief for a Day" celebration.

"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.

Lincoln Elementary School student Jack Oettinger was Hasbrouck Heights’ Police "Chief for a Day."

Donning an official Police Chief uniform, Chief Oettinger was picked up by HHPD Chief Michael Colaneri. Following a school security check, Chief Oettinger toured Hasbrouck Heights Police Headquarters then proceeded to Borough Hall for the Oath of Office.Then Chief Oettinger joined other "Chiefs for a Day" for a group photo on the steps of the Bergen County Justice Center in Hackensack and a full police motorcade to the Venetian in Garfield, where all the recipients were celebrated.

There was a DJ with live music, clowns making toys out of balloons and a funny-face photo booth. The keynote speaker at the event was Stephen Baker, "The Touchdown Maker." Each chief received a plaque commemorating their participation as 2016 "Chief for a Day."  ###
