BETHLEHEM, Pa. — For Black History Month, 69 News is continuing to share profiles on modern-day history makers throughout the region. Among them is Harrison Dillard, the chief of Moravian University Police and the founder of the Hunterdon County, New Jersey NAACP chapter.

Dillard used his challenging past to propel his positive future.

“I lived in the projects in Perth Amboy,” said Dillard. “My mother went into the Army when I was six years old and I really equate that to saving our lives.”
