Is there a serious crime wave in Memorial School the we taxpayers don't know about? Why is there a Union Beach Police Sergeant permanently assigned there, he has his own little corner in the main office, decorated with Yankee items, rides up and down the halls on a segway! I don't know for sure, but his police salary is close to $100,000 dollars a year. Should we as parents be concerned about the necessary presence of a full time police officer for the safety of our children, or the waste of our already outrageous tax dollars?
Just some food for thought.

Absolutely tim is a great guy all the kids know him and he knows all the kids. And a hundred thousand a year for my kids safety is well worth it for example columbine. What about the DARE program he has run for years and when they graduate the nets tickets he always got for there acheivents. So to get rid of the cop is absolutely wrong especially when he has certifications to substitute. And if something were to happen at the school u would probably be the first person to complain there was not security in the school or the first person at holy family church in hysterics

I agree with Beacher2! My 3 children love him him there. He always greets not only the children but, visitors as well wirh a smile. It makes me as a parent at ease knowing that he is there to protect our babies should something ever happen. He treats the kids as if they were all his own, I think all of Union Beach officers do. They go far and beyond when it comes to the children in our town. Ive lived in some bad areas and my children went to some bad schools, we love it here and it was and remains the best decision we made 5 years ago to move here! I know my children are safe at school and when playing with friends in town!
