The 1950's

Circa 1956, shown here are (From R to L): Ptl. James Cluney, Ptl. Ed Wiseman, Ptl. Anthony Dinice, and Ptl. William McCarthy.  The "red line" on Ptl. McCarthy's right arm indicates that he was a veteran of the military prior to his service to Ridgewood, NJ.
Circa 1958, this picture depicts members of the Ridgewood Police Department who were some of the first to be trained in First Aid.  Prior to training like this, officers aided people with little or no training.  Many of today's officers are Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), Paramedics or even nurses.
