White joined the Police Department in 1985 and retired as chief in 2020. He served as chief for seven years. He is a West Point Command and Leadership Program graduate, having also graduated from the Northwest University School of Police Staff and Command and the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Institute. He was certified by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police as an accredited command executive.

Jubilee joined the department in 1973 as an undercover narcotics detective.

In 2010, he was promoted to chief, serving in the role until his 2013 retirement. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy and FBI Law Enforcement Executive Leadership Institute.

Jubilee has served as the coordinator of public safety for the Atlantic City School District since 2015 and is a certified school safety specialist.

Bereheiko will be recognized for his lifesaving efforts while responding to an incident involving a stabbing victim last December. That act of heroism previously earned him an honorable mention from the National Association of Police Organizations and a Valor Award from the 200 Club of Atlantic and Cape May Counties.
