Allendale Police Department News

We are never truly off duty. RIP sir.

***Reminder*** With snow accumulations requiring plowing, parking on any street is prohibited. Please help our DPW and move your vehicles off the road. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation!

This is Franklin Turnpike, our most traveled road way. It goes without saying that every road in town is beyond slippery and snow-covered. Stay home where you are safe and out of harms way!

We hope everyone has a very happy and healthy new year! If you are going out tonight, make sure you make the right decision to not drink and drive and be safe out there!

******Due to the weather the recycling center will be closed today, December 30th. The recycling center will be open tomorrow December 31 from 9 am-330pm******

With snowy conditions in the forecast and snowy weather upon us the following is the New Jersey State Law 39:4-77 regarding Ice & Snow: Remove It Before You Go! There are approximately 500 fatalities in the United States per year due to icy road conditions. Remember to remove all ice and snow from your vehicle before driving, especially from the hood, windows and roof because it’s the law in NJ! Motorists who fail to do so face fines of $25 to $75 for each offense, regardless of whether the ice and snow is dislodged from the vehicle. If flying ice or snow causes property damage or injury to others, motorists face fines of $200 to $1,000 for each offense.

A law-enforcement legend retired today and honored a fallen member of our PBA Local in the process.

We here at APD hope you had a wonderful day with your families. Merry Christmas! Safe travels home

Today, Santa Claus or as we like to call him Sierra Charlie, visited the elementary schools after landing/parking his sleigh and reindeer up at Crestwood Park. And no, he did not receive a parking ticket. Just spent the morning bringing cheer to all the kids! 🎅🏼

Some active and retired members (and possibly a couple future members) of Allendale/Waldwick PBA Local #217 who helped load $1000 worth of spiral hams to be donated to the Center for Food Action in Mahwah. This annual donation is just a small way we can give back to people in need, especially this time of the year.

You must always pay attention since you never know what someone operating a motor vehicle may or may not do!

You can’t make this stuff up!

Allendale-Waldwick PBA Local #217 President Mike Dillon and State Delegate Vinny Rizzo unloaded our van and took part in the overwhelming festivities. They both said that they had never seen so many toys in one place before and every time the pile looked to be the longest and tallest, more and more toys were added to it. Just like our last post, these pictures do not even slightly do the experience justice.

I would say our first time participating in the SRT toy drive was more than a success. All loaded up and ready for tomorrow’s festivities. Almost filled an entire 500 ft.³ van. Picture does not do it justice how many toys are in there. Thank you so much to everyone who was so thoughtful and charitable! Note: we are no longer accepting toy donations at police headquarters

I know November seems like it was a long time ago, but we actually were able to extend this effort through the end of the year. We are just a mere $350 shy of our goal. Please find in your heart to be charitable and help us get there. Thank you in advance!

There are still a few more days left to get unwrapped toys into ours, or Waldwick PD headquarters. So far, the support has been overwhelming, filling up a nice portion of our building. Thank you in advance for the continued support!

Simply put, this is a toy drive consisting entirely of PBAs and PDs throughout the entire county of Bergen that benefits kids that are less fortunate than others. We are looking for new, unwrapped toys. Drop off locations are inside the front lobby of both Allendale PD and Waldwick PD’s headquarters. Please have all toys delivered by 12/17/17. We thank you so much in advance for your anticipated generosity!

Lock your cars!
