Monday, March 9, 2015

Members of the Montclair Police Department gave a group of students from China a bird's eye view of the Department’s workings last Thursday. The twelve students were from various universities in China and were participating in a two-week program to complete sociology assignments on the role of US law enforcement in modern American society.

The students first met with Deputy Chief Todd Conforti who explained the department hierarchy and the many functions of a police force. They then visited the different units and bureaus in MPD headquarters and were introduced to officers, detectives and supervisors.

The students met members of the Juvenile Aid Bureau, Detective Bureau, Records and Identification Bureau, Uniform Division, Traffic Bureau, Patrol, and the Community Service Unit. During the two-hour tour they also had a fingerprinting demonstration and got to see the inside of a cell block and several police vehicles.
