Chief Robert J. Falzarano
Academic Scholarship Award

The Coalition is proud to offer an annual scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00, to deserving high school or college students who plan to further their education, preferably in a field related to public safety.

The Chief Robert J. Falzarano Scholarship Award, conferred annually, is named in honor of Chief Robert J. Falzarano who is credited with being the first CALEA accreditation manager in New Jersey. Falzarano (pictured left) worked as a police officer for the Passaic Township Police Department. His hard work and steadfast dedication paid off when the Passaic Township Police Department became the first police department in New Jersey and only the thirteenth in the entire county to become CALEA accredited. The success of accreditation in New Jersey is in large part due to the vision, courage, and determination of one man to bring policing into the future and establish it as a true profession ~ Chief Robert J. Falzarano.
