One of the many impacting videos presented during today’s training. The video is a good reminder for all of us to evaluate the usage of digital technology by our youth.

Earlier today, our officers attended the 26th annual SNAP conference. It was a great day of learning and networking with school, health care professionals and other law enforcement organizations to reach one common goal- "Helping Our Youth"

We have also experienced this in the past and would like to remind our residents to please remove all valuable items and especially key fobs from your vehicles and to lock your car doors at all times. Locking your vehicles and removing the key fobs is a simple way to deter criminals. It only takes a second to lock the doors.

Diversion Burglary Nearby: The Waldwick Police Department is investigating a diversion burglary to a home on Lilyan Street on August 24 around 4PM. A Hispanic male wearing a baseball cap and a blue jacket made contact with the elderly victim and stated he was a police officer and needed to check the water in the house. The male had some type of identification or badge around his neck and presented it when identifying himself as a police officer. Once inside the suspect led the victim around the home running the faucets and washing machine. After several minutes the male told the victim he needed to check around the back of the house. The male and the victim remained outside for a few minutes and it is believed an accomplice entered the home. The male suspect abruptly left the yard on foot in an unknown direction. A short time later the victim discovered a significant amount of cash was missing from the home. If you have any concern about someone's identity, please do not hesitate to contact the Wyckoff Police Department to investigate. 201-891-2121 County Dispatch. Hear it! See it! Report it!
