  • Wednesday June, 7 to Sunday, June 11

"The Paramus Police department is looking forward to welcoming the carnival once again this year," Paramus Police Capt. Jimmy Teehan said. "We are excited to partner with LEAD to further opportunities for law enforcement and our community to gather in such an exciting way. "

Proceeds from the carnival support the local and national Law Enforcement Against Drugs and Violence (LEAD) organization.

Founded in 2014 by retired New Milford Detective Nick De Mauro, LEAD offers curriculum services in 41 states. 

It's supported by police officers committed to protecting youth and communities from the proliferation of drugs, drug related crimes, bullying and violence.
