Welcome to the Patrol Division of the Hasbrouck Heights Police Department. The Patrol Division is headed by Captain Joseph Rinke. The Patrol Division is dedicated to interacting with the community and also enforcing the laws of New Jersey and the borough. The Patrol Division consists of Five Squads that work on a variety of different shifts each month. Each of the five squads is headed by a tour commander who’s primary duty is delegating duties among his squad, and assuring that each call is handled promptly with all necessary resources dispatched. The current Tour Commanders for the HHPD are Lt. James Miller, Lt. Charles Lesho, Ptl. James Loos, Sgt. Daniel Kroncke and Ptl. Paul Albanese. The patrol division has a wealth of resources at their disposal. Our vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art computers run by INFO-COP, E-TICKET, and ENFORSYS. Some vehicles are also equipped with Automated License Plate readers that read, record, and check license plates constantly throughout the officers shift.
