HOWELL – Two hundred lucky students got the chance to hang with Howell officers during this year’s Special Needs Holiday Party. The students teamed up with Howell Police for some bowling and also got a special Christmas treat by meeting Santa and Mrs. Claus.

The annual event was put on by the cooperative efforts of Howell PBA, Howell Lanes, and Howell School District K-8. According to Howell Police, the event was originally organized by Corporal Weg and has since been taken over by Patrolman Franklin.

“This is an event that these children as well as us look forward to every year!! There is no better way for us start the holiday season!!” stated police via social media.

Students also enjoyed a breakfast with the officers and received a special gift courtesy of Howell PBA and New Jersey Transit.
