While waiting for the arrival of a representative from the Bergen County Animal Shelter in Teterboro, Officer Donnelly engaged in Community Policing activity by passing out “police officer badge” stickers to several young citizens who had walked over to see the large turtle. The reptile was safely relocated to a more suitable habitat by an animal control officer approximately 90 minutes after Donnelly was dispatched to the scene.
