Community Policing

During warmer weather months, various Officers are assigned to bicycle patrol, which allows them to interact closer with the general public. These bicycle Officers are accessible to the public at many events such as “Concerts in the Park,” the annual Fourth of July celebration and March of Dimes walk.

Residents are encouraged to call for information on the summer “Junior Police Academy.” The Academy is open to town children between the ages of 7 and 12. The children spend four days learning about various aspects of police and public safety work, which is specifically designed for a younger audience.

Detective Bureau

Individuals or groups are encouraged to contact the Detective Bureau to discuss the dangers of alcohol and drugs. Residents may also contact the Detective Bureau to arrange for bicycle registration, to apply for or renew liquor licenses, apply for a taxi license, and for non-criminal fingerprinting.

Juvenile Bureau

Members of the Juvenile Bureau are trained on a wide variety of issues related to the Juvenile Justice System or any juvenile related issues. The DARE Officers are specialists in the field of drug awareness and prevention. The DARE Officers are members of the Juvenile Bureau and are available to students to discuss any problem they may have. The Juvenile Bureau’s responsibility is to protect juveniles and investigate crimes committed by juveniles. Part of the Bureau’s protection role included the tracking and registration of sex offenders under Megan’s Law. Members of the Juvenile Bureau are available to provide assistance to parent’s of missing children. In cases of abduction, this Bureau has equipment for immediate access to the Amber Alert System.

Traffic Safety Concerns

Residents may contact the Traffic Safety Unit to request that the radar trailer be placed on their street. This trailer shows oncoming traffic the posted speed limit and compares it with the speed they are traveling. Officers may follow up on the radar enforcement upon removal of the trailer. The mission of the Traffic Safety Unit is to ensure that pedestrians and motorists are able to conveniently maneuver throughout the Town, with the safety of these individuals being of primary concern. This is accomplished through a variety of traffic functions, such as: the School Crossing Guard Program, the Pedestrian Safety Grant Program, child passenger safety seat inspections, radar enforcement and intersection evaluations.

Additional areas of focus for the Traffic Bureau include: Bicycle Helmet Awareness Programs, accident investigations, and investigating complaints of vehicles passing stopped school buses and frozen dessert trucks.

National statistics indicate that 80% of all child passenger safety seats are installed incorrectly. Town residents may schedule an appointment with the Traffic Unit for a free child safety seat inspection.
