A highly decorated Piscataway Police Officer who heads the honor guard, detective Laughlin is a certified school resource officer and our town's first D.A.R.E. Mentor. He has trained hundreds of D.A.R.E. Officers statewide and, under his direction, has graduated thousands of Piscataway students from this prestigious nationwide drug resistance program.

Calvin serves as Vice Chair of the Piscataway Municipal Alliance and works with scouting organizations throughout our community and statewide. Calvin was born in Plainfield and moved to Piscataway at age four. He is a proud graduate of our Piscataway Public Schools and the Middlesex County Police Academy.

He married his high school sweetheart and they have two children who also graduated from Piscataway Schools. Calvin attributes his work ethic today to his father who taught him the value of hard work and that people don’t mind helping you when they see you’re trying to help yourself. Calvin is the former Director of the Youth Department at Macedonia O.F.W. Baptist Church and serves as Chairman of the Deacon Board
