THE TRENTON POLICE DEPARTMENT
Shortly after the city of Trenton was incorporated, the village president and four trustees appointed Abiather Jones as the first town constable. Around 1897, Marshal Patrick Mahady was granted the power to deputize men to assist with the 4th of July festivities. This was the true beginning of the Trenton Police Department. 1937 marks the first full-time police department with one chief and six patrol officers. Today the department employs 34 sworn police officers, 8 civilian dispatchers, and 2 civilian employees who work together to provide continuous 24-hour protection and service to the City of Trenton.
