The Bernards Township Police Department has two School Resource Officers; one assigned to Ridge High School and the other to William Annin Middle School. Both officers handle investigations, concerns, and other issues related to the community's school-age children. This program is a collaborative effort by the Bernards Township Police, Board of Education, students, parents and community in an effort to reduce crime, drug abuse and violence; therefore creating and maintaining a safe school environment. In addition, the program strives to promote a positive image of law enforcement to our youth and to create strong community partnerships.
