In just a few weeks, the Shore's next generation of police officers will put the wraps on their completion of the Toms River Police Department's Community Action Program.

A pair of seniors from Toms River High School North started "CAP" at the beginning of the school year, last September, and have been committing 6 hours a week to working with the department to learn all aspects of law enforcement.

High school North seniors Abel Bontempo and Dylan Bonilla worked alongside Toms River Police Training Sergeant Guy Maire to learn about everything from the day to day tasks like administration, all the way up to and including court, jail, dispatch, and more..

According to a press release from the TRPD, Chief Mitch Little explained the program, saying that, "These two students, who are interested in a career in the law enforcement field, have been given the opportunity to explore different life choice paths through the program.

Our congratulations to Abel and Dylan for completing the program, and best of luck in pursuing your law enforcement ambitions!
