ALLENDALE, N.J. -- The Rev. Michael Allen made his annual visit to bless the badges of officers at the Allendale Police Department.

“Realizing that our police officers need to know that the communities they serve do support them” was the reason, said Allen, of Trinity Episcopal Church , who began the tradition a few years ago to coincide with the Feast of St. Michael, the patron saint of police.

“It’s personal, which made it a more powerful experience,” Police Chief George Scherb said.
