EMERSON, N.J. -- Emerson police were among a small group of law enforcement agencies and officers from New Jersey honored Monday by state Attorney General Christopher Porrino for "outstanding achievements and innovation in community policing throughout the state."

Porrino presented the 2017 Community Policing Awards to three Bergen County recipients -- Emerson, Midland Park and Park Ridge police -- at a ceremony Monday in the Rutgers University Livingston Campus Student Center in Piscataway honoring nearly 30 altogether.

Porrino was joined by state Criminal Justice Director Elie Honig, the State Association of Chiefs of Police and community and faith-based leaders in honoring the local officers.

The award recognizes "innovative and successful approaches to fostering relationships of collaboration, trust, and understanding between police departments and community groups," the attorney general said.
