On Tuesday, February 19, during its monthly meeting, Crime Stoppers Chairman Harry Comp presented a plaque to Robert "Sully" Sullivan to recognize him for his many years of dedication and commitment to the Crime Stoppers organization.
The recognition award was provided by Fairleigh Dickinson University for the January 31st "Crime Stoppers Knight at FDU" men's basketball game in which FDU recognized our organization and the law enforcement officers from our Bergenfield-Bogota-Englewood-Teaneck-Hackensack communities.
Sully is a founding member and active trustee for the Tri-Community Crime Stoppers group started in 1981 and consisting of Bergenfield, Teaneck, and Hackensack. Today, the organization includes the City of Englewood and the Borough of Bogota. Other contiguous municipal police agencies have expressed an interest in being a part of this group as well. Sully's vision to help his community stay safe and to be a partner to law enforcement by assisting them in solving crimes by offering cash rewards, is still continuing 38 years later. Both Sully and his wife Connie have been a part of the organization serving as the treasurer in addition to being trustees.
Sully, although never looking for such attention and recognition, graciously thanked the group and FDU for the award. In accepting, his only words were asking the public for their continued support of law enforcement and the Crime Stoppers organization to help us all live safely within our communities.
THANK YOU SULLY!!
