L.E.A.D. In Our Communities

“In today’s society, police are placed in a negative light and many children are taught not to trust the police. Programs like L.E.A.D. allow officers, like Officer Cassandra Aumack, to not only teach the children about the negative impacts of illicit substances, but to have a positive impact on their impression of law enforcement and acclimate them to interacting with law enforcement both in the classroom and on the street,” said Lieutenant Mark Hafner of the Keyport Police Department. “Any time we can be a positive influence to the children in our community, we strive to make that difference.”

Officer “Cassy,” as she is known to the kids said that she and her students have very active conversations. “The kids ask lots of questions, and, it’s amazing how the most shy, reserved kids become the most avid volunteers,” said Aumack.

“I see the L.E.A.D. program as a door-opener for conversations in the future,” I enjoy getting to know the kids. And, outside of work, when the kids come up to me and we start talking…well, it really reinforces the positive relationships developed during the program.”

We are providing available supporter static stickers that can be placed on and off easily. Our Development Specialist will be selling them throughout the state of New Jersey for $5.00 and allocate $1.00 of every sticker sale sold, to that local community. We will ensure that a portion of the proceeds gets allocated for local L.E.A.D. activities.

If a local L.E.A.D. Chapter wants to use it for a local fundraiser, we ask that the sticker also be sold for $5.00.

However, the sticker will also be on sale for $5.00 through our Merchandise Company for you to distribute to supporters in your community.

We have two vendors which we utilize for our recycling program. Any Officer who assists in securing a location for the placement of a clothing recycling container will receive a special credit to their allocated account.
