​​​​​​​My Partnership in Educating and Raising Awareness with the NJ State Police 

In early August, I drove down to New Jersey State Police Headquarters where the Attorney General had some meetings to take care of, so he told me to meet him there. It just so happened, the AG had a meeting with Colonel Pat Callahan of NJ State Police. The AG invited me to this meeting and this is where I met the Colonel for the first time after hearing so much about him through social media. After the meeting concluded, I got to spend some time with the Colonel I realized that we had a lot in common – we both are committed to creating an environment in New Jersey where everyone no matter their background, race, gender, religion, etc. feel safe and can be proud to call the Garden State their home.
