Public Safety Awards

Each year the East Brunswick Police Department recognizes and honors its sworn and non-sworn personnel as a way to show its gratitude for the dedication and hard work that they perform on a daily basis. Although day in and day out, the members of the Police Department show their true professionalism and dedication, certain incidents or investigations rise to the level of an award. Each year personnel is nominated by their supervisors, and then a review board makes the determination which incidents/investigations will receive a department award.
