Ms. Colleen Pascale

I, along with my children, have resided in Randolph for the past ten years. I have two children, one in Randolph High School and another in Monmouth University. Prior to moving to Randolph, I was a member of the Butler Board of Education and served as PTO President. Presently, I am a former member of the Randolph Board of Education. 

I am a 1992 graduate of the Morris County Police Academy and have been employed by the Butler Police Department for 25 years. Currently, I hold the title of Detective Sergeant. I also serve as a School Resource Officer, Juvenile Officer, LEAD (DARE) Instructor and Mentor for the State of New Jersey. I am also an educator for a Morris County School District. I have been a leader paving the way for women for years.  I was the first female Police Officer in the jurisdiction of Butler and have the distinction of being the second woman ever appointed to sit on the executive board of the New Jersey Police Honor Legion, a fraternal charitable organization representing active and retired NJ law enforcement membership. Additionally, I was the first female member of the Butler Fire Department. 

Service and leadership have always been a part of my life both in my community and professionally. I currently serve on the Executive Board of the Policemen’s Benevolent Association and the Butler Policemen’s Association. I am a member of the Randolph Republican Club and was the former President of the Randolph Basketball Booster Club. Previously, I coached in both the Randolph and Butler Recreation Programs.

I have been recognized and awarded many times for my achievements.  In both 2008 and 2009, I received a Meritorious Award from the Morris County Detectives Association.  In 2012, I was presented with a Recognition Award for being a distinguished female in the law enforcement community by the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.  In 2012, I was again recognized for distinguished service as a female law enforcement officer, and received a Citation of Commendation and Praise from Senator Joe Pennachio, Assemblyman Jay Webber, Assemblywoman Betty Lou DeCroce and Senator Anthony Bucco.  In 2017, I received a Meritorious Life Saving Award for rescuing a man from a burning building. 

I have a Master of Administrative Science Degree from Fairleigh Dickenson University in Teaneck. I also have a Certificate of Eligibility for a Teacher of Law Enforcement.
