HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – The Town of Hackettstown and the Hackettstown Police Department dedicated a street corner to Judy Stone, a town crossing guard for 42 years.

Stone retired on June 16, 2023 after decades of making sure students were able to safely get to school.

“It’s an honor to do this after one of our exceptional crossing guards retired after 42 years,” Hackettstown Mayor Jerry DiMaio said. “Judy was great to the kids and parents. Everyone loved her.”

Stone, who started working as a crossing guard in Hackettstown when she was 34-years-old, was joined by her family and friends at the dedication ceremony.
