Who We Are
WHAT’S BEHIND THE SIX 4?
Our founder is a highly decorated former law enforcement officer who has served communities in emergency response for nearly 30 years. When he was first sworn into the Seaside Park, NJ Police Department he was issued the badge number 64. When he moved on to the East Windsor, NJ Police Department, out of pure coincidence, he was again assigned badge number 64. The number has served him well as he has served others and now SIX 4 Consultants is here to serve you.
