The Metuchen Police Department and the Metuchen Auxiliary Police are looking for Metuchen residents who are interested in becoming volunteer police officers for the borough.  No prior training is necessary; training will be provided.

The auxiliary police, consisting of both men and women, work with the police department to reduce hazards, assist police officers with patrols of the entire borough, assist in emergency or disastrous situations, conduct traffic control, crowd control and road closures, provide extra patrols at schools and places of worship, assist in the first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and provide services deemed necessary by Police Chief James Keane.

Requirements to become an auxiliary police officer in the borough include being a Metuchen resident 18 years old or older, having a valid driver's license, and passing a criminal background check.

This is a volunteer position.  The auxiliary police officers volunteer their time in an effort to enhance the quality of life for the citizens, visitors and businesses in the community.

All applicants will be required by the county to attend the Middlesex County Auxiliary Police Academy, which will start in March and run to June, prior to becoming an auxiliary police officer in the borough.  The academy is roughly three and a half hours on two nights a week, and eight Saturdays of eight-hour days of training.

If interested, contact Auxiliary Capt. Richard Dana, Jr., Auxiliary Sgt. Angelo Donato III at 732- 632-8123. For applications, click here.

Applications can either be mailed or dropped off at the Metuchen Police Department, 500 Main Street, Metuchen, NJ 08840, with attention to Metuchen Auxiliary Police Sgt. Angelo Donato III.  Send any questions to: mailto:DIRIZARRY@METUCHENPD.ORG
