HILLSDALE 4X4X48 2023 & Torch Run for Special Olympics

The 4x4x48 challenge began a few years ago when Officer Dave Sayers of the Hillsdale Police Department wanted to create a fundraiser and raise awareness for the Special Olympics while challenging himself.

The 4x4x48 challenge consists of 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours, which David Goggins created! Two of David Goggins's greatest rules are to outwork everyone and push your limits. Officer Dave Sayers lives by those rules and started doing the 4x4x48 two years ago with his kids, and Jake Prusha was a volunteer EMT and firefighter in Hillsdale but is now in the United States Coast Guard.

The donations from this go straight to the Special Olympics of New Jersey, so we appreciate every donation we get!

Successful Coffee with a Cop!

On 11/12/2022, the Hillsdale Police Department in cooperation with Inserra Supermarkets hosted a "Coffee with a Cop" event at the Hillsdale Shop Rite. The event was attended by members of the Hillsdale Police Department with the goal to interact with the community.
Coffee with a Cop allows citizens to meet with police officers in an environment that facilitates relaxed conversations. Hillsdale Police Officers spoke with many residents about a variety of issues facing our community. We discussed topics from traffic control on side streets, firearms law, road construction, and flooding. 
We listened to what every resident had to say and made necessary referrals to the departments that could address the issues. We are looking forward to hosting another event in the first quarter of 2023. 
We would like to thank Inserra Supermarkets for hosting the event and we would also like to thank the residents who came to the event and spoke with us about their concerns.
The Hillsdale Police Department has been hosting "Coffee with a Cop" events since 2013 and we look forward to celebrating one decade of Coffee with a Cop with our residents in 2023.

Cops and Bobbers

Cops and Bobbers is a community policing event that is co-sponsored by the Hillsdale Police Department and the Hillsdale PBA. The purpose of this event is to use fishing as a tool to connect police officers and the youth of their communities. Officers work side by side with kids, helping them bait, cast, hook and release fish all while bonding and learning that they are not so different from each other after all.

Fishing teaches patience, ingenuity, preparation, and humility. It is an activity almost anyone can do and afford. In the Cops & Bobbers program, cops and kids work and fish together which makes every day a good day.

NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s Game Wardens will provide demonstrations and education to any and all participants. Also, NJDEP will be providing they're Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs trailer which contains fishing equipment to loan to those that have never fished before or are in need of equipment.
