Rozalia Czaban retired as a principal of Principal of Perth Amboy High School in 2010. A graduate from William Paterson University with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in English Literature, and received her Supervisor/Administrator Certificate from Kean University. As an educator she was very involved with the students, teachers and parents, not only in school activities, but in the community as well.

Some of these activities included food, toy and clothing drives, tutoring programs and fundraising efforts for the less fortunate or those affected by disaster in the United States and worldwide. She has been a district teacher of the year, the Governor’s Teacher Recognition Award. She has raised over $200,000 for student scholarships and was the first coordinator for the High School Hall of Fame Committee.

Joseph Britton, a retired Detective Lieutenant in the Perth Amboy Police Department, began his career in law enforcement with the Rutgers University Police Department.  He achieved the rank of Sergeant before resigning to join the Perth Amboy Police Department.  After 8 years on the force in Perth Amboy, he was elevated to Detective and was assigned to the Juvenile Aid Bureau (JAB).  Shortly thereafter, he was promoted to Detective Sergeant and commanded the Juvenile Aid Bureau. He served a 3 year term to the Perth Amboy Board of Education, and chaired the district’s building and renovation program.

Joe established the Police Benevolent Association Lodge 13 Rangers. This Explorer group of 30 Perth Amboy boys aged 12 to 16, met weekly and conducted monthly camping trips. As a result of this program and many other initiatives, during his tenure in the JAB, juvenile crime in Perth Amboy was reduced by nearly fifty per cent. Many of these young men now serve as Perth Amboy Police Officers, N.J. State Troopers, County Prosecutors’ Investigators, Sherriff’s Officers and Uniformed Firefighters.
