  1. The guy with the phone is Captain Myers right hand man #301. He was probably sending the ok to a some sort of important deal. He is a very friendly school guy

  2. That is School Resource Officer Patrolman Alex Guzman, who is one of the most active officers both on duty and off duty and is an integral part of this department. Alex goes above and beyond the call of duty for all of the citizens of Lakewood. The chief and captains are grateful for his service.

  3. Alex and his Civilian team have been great for our town, the amount they save us on a daily basis, the great Kiddush Hashem they make is remarkable.

    Thank You Alex, Bentzi, Moshe and friends!
