On Friday, June 8, the Hillsdale Police Department in conjunction with Pascack Valley Regional High School, Hackensack University Medical Center, Hillsdale Ambulance Corps, Hillsdale Fire Department, River Vale Fire Department and the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office - Fatal Accident Investigation unit conducted a motor vehicle crash re-enactment on the campus of Pascack Valley Regional High School.

The purpose of the re-enactment is to reinforce the dangers of drinking and driving, especially during the upcoming prom and commencement season.

This was an outstanding example of how the community can come together to teach an important lesson to our students.  The Pascack Valley Regional High School District is incredibly grateful to all of the agencies for working together to bring this important experience to our children.
