The officers, 911 telecommmunicators and civilian personnel of the Bergenfield Police Department remember Captain Lawrence Dorsey who passed away on April 25, 2014. He served the Borough of Bergenfield as a police officer from June 1960 until June 1985. His years of service provided a safer, educated community for the residents and families of the borough. Captain Dorsey, before his retirement, was commander of the Detective Bureau after his promotion to that rank. During his tenure as a detective, sergeant, lieutenant and captain, he was instrumental in establishing a relationship with the Bergenfield Board of Education as a police liaison, and provided important information and facts about drug abuse and its effects to all students of the district. Captain Dorsey's efforts as the liaison is considered Bergenfield Police Department's first D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program. The program continues today with our officers.
The members of the BPD extend our sincere condolences to his family. Captain Dorsey, thank you for your service. It will not be forgotten.
