HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – The Hackettstown Police Department promoted officer Edward Blas to sergeant on Jan. 1 but due to COVID-19, the swearing-in ceremony didn’t happen until Thursday night at the town council meeting.
Edwards Blas started his career with the Essex County Police in 2005. He then joined the Harrison Police Department in 2006 and was then hired with the Hackettstown Police Department in May 2009.
Blas also served with the United States Marine Corps Golf Co. 2/25 from 2002-2008.
