HILLSDALE, N.J. -- New Hillsdale Police Capt. Sean Smith was sworn in to the post with a promise to do his part "to provide the best police service and professionalism we can."

"I'm very honored, humbled and pleased to serve the best police force in Bergen County," Smith told Daily Voice. "My career has been a dream fulfilled so far, but there's a lot more work to be done."

Smith comes from a police family: His father worked for Hillsdale and his two older brothers also serve.

He also is a history buff and has compiled two books on the department's history over nearly 120 years from newspaper clippings, police reports and other memorabilia collected through the decades ( SEE VIDEO, ABOVE ).

A Tenafly native, Smith joined the department in January 1997. He was promoted to sergeant in 2012 and then to lieutenant a year ago this week.

Smith has spent more than 15 years as the department's D.A.R.E. coordinator . He also is the department's liaison to the American Legion and the Hillsdale Police Auxiliary.
