WEST PATERSON, N.J. - Robert Reda has served the community with more than two decades of law enforcement, and now borough residents are coming together to help the police chief with mounting medical bills in his battle with lung cancer.
"It's wonderful, all the support we're getting," said Carlo Renne, a patrol officer and president of the West Paterson Policemen's Benevolent Association. "Our chief is a great person, and he knows a lot of people."
