ATLANTIC CITY – Middle Township Police, among officers from around the state, work as bodyguards each year at the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City. On Saturday, Sept. 10, Cpl. James D'Alonzo and PFC Steve Novsak escorted Miss Utah 2016 Lauren Wilson along the annual “Show Us Your Shoes” parade route to keep the young woman safe. “I was assigned to her for the duration of the parade,” D'Alonzo said. “She was super friendly and I asked to get a picture for (the Gazette). She then smiled and said let’s take some selfies and grabbed my phone.” Prior to the parade, the officers also joined members of Eagles cheerleading team for a photo.
