HLEAUC making a difference; in 2015 we awarded 7 Scholarships, this year we are on target to exceed that and are adding 2 Memorial Scholarships. This is what one recipient had to say:

 "I can't tell you enough how much this scholarship was able to aid me in my success as a Senior and in life. I was able to actually buy books this semester and get food at school. I was able to utilize the scholarship money to commute to school without public transportation. I want to thank you and the entire organization for selecting me for such an amazing scholarship. Your organization is doing amazing things and the people can see how hard working and kind-hearted you all are. Thank you once again, from a very grateful Student here at Kean University."

Heroes on the Court Champions 2017

On Sunday May 21, 2017 the Hispanic Law Enforcement Association of Union County, Inc. hosted the 3rd Annual Heroes on the Court 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament at Kean University’s Harwood Arena. There were 24 teams of 3, comprised of first responders from federal, state, county and Municipal agencies; in addition to guest participants Union County Freeholder Sergio Granados and City of Elizabeth Council President Carlos Torres. They both brought in their "A" game but didn't make the finals. Over 200 hundred were in attendance to watch the tournament, including Assemblywoman Annette Quijano and City of Elizabeth Mayor J. Christian Bollwage. We also were honored to have Guest Announcer, "The Voice" of Kean Athletics Wayne Avery.

Linden Fire Department/Red Team, Anthony Holland, Greg Weber and Tim Benoit captured the title of Heroes on the Court 2017. This is Linden's third consecutive year making the finals, and first championship title. The Police/Blue Team Conference winners were Union County Corrections Officer Daniel McGettigan and Officers George Tovar & Anthony Joseph from Elizabeth PD.

The proceeds from this event benefit our scholarships at Kean University, Union County College and the HLEA Memorial Scholarship. In addition we will donate a portion of the proceeds to the "Basketball Cop Foundation."  This foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to building relationships between our country's Law Enforcement and the youth in our communities through “Trust.” 

This event was made possible with the assistance of our

The MAX Challenge/Springfield-Union NJ,
The Selection of NJ and the
Elizabeth FMBA Local# 9
