SOUTH BRUNSWICK — With as many as 12 officers eligible to retire next year, the South Brunswick Police Department is actively seeking new members.

Police Detective Sgt. James Ryan said the members who are eligible to retire amount to nearly 20 percent of the 73-member police department.

“[Police Chief Raymond] Hayducka wants to create a list so we can quickly implement new officers,” Ryan said.

Calling the department “growing and progressive,” Hayducka said he is welcoming all to consider becoming a South Brunswick police officer.

“We are at the forefront with our technology, equipment and training,” he said.

Hayducka noted that the department is an accredited agency with a strong reputation as being leaders in New Jersey law enforcement.

“We work in a great community with supportive residents and community leaders,” Hayducka said.

The department anticipates the potential for several new officers in the coming year as a result of the retirements.

Interested applicants are urged to submit a résumé as soon as possible. Résumés can be dropped off in person or mailed to the police station at South Brunswick Police Department, 540 Ridge Road, Monmouth Junction, NJ 08852.
