CHATHAM TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT
31st Annual National Night Out-Tuesday August 5, 2014
National Night Out is a community wide/nationwide
event meant to promote community involvement in crime prevention, increase awareness and heighten police-community relations . If you are interested in hosting a neighborhood event please contact Detective Scott Herchick at SHerchick@ctpd.net .
Anyone under the age of 17 is required to wear an approved helmet when cycling, roller skating, in-line skating, or skateboarding.
In 2013, 14 bicyclists were killed and many more injured in New Jersey due to crashes. Although many of the bicycle deaths and injuries were the result of bicycle-motor vehicle collisions, others occurred in parks, bike paths, driveways and roadways, and often do not involve motor vehicles.
Head injury is the most serious injury type and the most common cause of death among bicyclists. The most severe injuries are those to the brain that cause permanent damage.
Don’t take a chance…..ALWAYS make sure your child is wearing a helmet!!
Traffic Enforcement Warning
Patrol Officers will be stepping up enforcement on all township roads as the summer months approach. Please do your part and obey all traffic laws!
NEW TRAFFIC ADVISORY
A major sewer line project has started and will impact
traffic on the Fairmount Avenue, Southern Boulevard and River Road corridor. It is strongly advised that you plan an alternate route to avoid this area during the construction period which will last several weeks.
