Originally, the men and women of the Teaneck Police Department were members of the Central Bergen Police Benevolent Association Local #186. In 1972, the Teaneck Police Department decided to form their own PBA, and the Police Benevolent Association Local #215 was formed.

At its inception the PBA #215 membership was 70 members strong. Over the Past 45 years the Teaneck PBA #215 has grown to over 91 active members and over 300 retired. Through fundraising and volunteering, the Local Teaneck PBA #215 has worked to become a positive organization within the Township Of Teaneck and the State of New Jersey.
