PARAMUS, N.J. -- Paramus Police Detective Sgt. James Teehan received the 2017 LEAD Officer of the Year Award at the annual L.E.A.D. conference held in Atlantic City.

The coveted award is given to an officer with the drug prevention and education program who is selected by his or her peers and the L.E.A.D. (Law Enforcement Against Drugs) advisory boards.

"Detective Sgt. Teehan and the Paramus Police L.E.A.D. program is one of the very best in our state," Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler, chairman of the L.E.A.D. Board of Directors, told Daily Voice.

"The detective sergeant and Paramus police, as a whole, should be commended for their professionalism and genuine care to educate, bring awareness to and fight drug addiction in their community."

Teehan received the award and spoke at the conference awards luncheon ceremony Tuesday at Harrah's Conference Center in Atlantic City.
