Sgt. McNichol receives MADD New Jersey’s 2022 Top Cop Award for Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) Evaluations in New Jersey:
On Thursday, June 22, 2023, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) of New Jersey along with the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety hosted their annual statewide awards
ceremony at Rutgers University New Brunswick where they recognized members of law enforcement throughout NJ who have displayed exemplary efforts in the fight to eliminate
impaired driving. 
MADD’s 2022 Top Cop Award for Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) Evaluations in New Jersey was presented to Sgt. McNichol for performing the highest number of DRE evaluations in
NJ (42). Sgt. McNichol has been a DRE for 20+ years and has conducted over 600 DRE evaluations during that time. He continues to serve as the Morris County DRE Coordinator, NJ

On behalf of Chief Camoia and the entire Mendham Borough Police Department, we are
immensely proud of Sgt. McNichol for being recognized for his outstanding efforts in keeping
roadways and communities safe from impaired drivers.
Congratulations Pat! Keep up the excellent work!
