On April 17, 2018 the Wyckoff Municipal Alliance joined with the Ramapo Indian Hills School District in hosting guest speaker, Sarah Panzau. Sarah delivered a heartfelt presentation to the Juniors and Seniors from both schools. Her powerful message focused on the importance of making the right decisions when it comes to drinking and driving. In the early hours of August 23, 2003, Sarah's life changed forever. She was out with her “friends” at a bar and they had been drinking all night. She made the decision to get into her car and drive home. On her way home, Sarah was involved in a serious motor vehicle crash that left her clinging to life. Her left arm was severed in the accident and she has undergone over 30 surgeries related to her accident. She suffers from chronic nerve pain and lives with constant pain. Sarah was a promising high school athlete who excelled in volleyball and received many awards. She won Freshman of the Year honors at Southwestern Illinois College and was named to seven all-tournament teams. She told the students how her life started to spiral out of control. She began hanging with the “wrong crowd” and started using drugs and alcohol. Her partying life style ended with her accident and forever changed her life. She told the students that while she was in the hospital recovering, and to this day, none of the “friends” she was with that night have contacted her. With prom season and summer upon us, the Ramapo Indian Hills School District and the Wyckoff Municipal Alliance believe it was the right time for the students to hear Sarah’s message about making the right decisions when comes to alcohol and substance abuse.

TO: ALL NEWS MEDIA FROM: Lieutenant Joseph Soto, PIO DATE: 4-19-2018 CONTACT: Lieutenant Joseph Soto, PIO (201) 891-2121 DISPATCH wyckoffpolice@wyckoffpolice.org For Immediate Release: Wyckoff Police Chief David V. Murphy reported that the police department received a report at approximately 12:41pm, from the Bergen County Mental Health Screening Agency (262-HELP). They requested an officer respond to a home on Martom Road with them to assist in a mental health screening of an adult male. Officers arrived on location and attempted to make contact with the male. The male came to the door and made several concerning comments and then barricaded himself in the home. Wyckoff officers took a tactical position and contacted the Bergen County Regional SWAT Team for a response. The SWAT Team is under the direction of Acting Prosecutor Dennis Calo, Chief of Detectives, Robert Anzilotti and Bergen County Sheriff, Michael Saudino. With the assistance of the SWAT Team and negotiators, the adult male exited the home and was safely taken into custody at approximately 3:17pm. He was evaluated on scene and then transported to a local medical facility to receive treatment. Chief Murphy is grateful for the successful and safe conclusion, and the cooperation and patience of all residents in the immediate area. Chief Murphy would like to thank the Bergen County Prosecutors Office, Sheriff’s Department and all of the regional team members that responded.

TO: ALL NEWS MEDIA FROM: Lieutenant Joseph Soto, PIO DATE: 4-19-2018 CONTACT: Lieutenant Joseph Soto, PIO (201) 891-2121DISPATCH wyckoffpolice@wyckoffpolice.org For Immediate Release: Wyckoff Police Chief David V. Murphy reported that the police department received a report from Eastern Christian Middle School staff on Wednesday, April 18th at approximately 4:41pm. The staff reported that two 13 year old female students were missing and were last observed walking off of school property at approximately 3:10pm. Detectives and Officers of the department immediately gathered all pertinent information and began their investigation. Early on, information was developed that revealed this was a planned departure by the girls and that they were planning to “run away”. With this in mind, officers continued to pursue the investigation and enlisted the assistance of the Bergen County Prosecutors Office – Special Victim’s Unit, under the direction of Acting Prosecutor Dennis Calo and Chief of Detectives, Robert Anzilotti. Both agencies continued to work throughout the night aggressively pursuing all leads and interviewing numerous persons. At approximately 3:50am, both females were found safe and unharmed by investigating officers and turned over to the care of their parents. It was confirmed that they had planned to run away and no other persons were involved. We would like to remind everyone that both girls are minors. As such, we ask for privacy for the girls and their families during this time. Chief Murphy would like to thank the Bergen County Prosecutors Office as well as all of the local police departments that assisted.

In reference to the missing children in our previous post, we have located them and they are being turned over to the care of their parents. Chief Murphy would like to thank all of the Wyckoff Police officers as well as Detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutors Office for their tireless efforts in pursuing all leads which led to a successful outcome. Please feel free to share this post to let everyone know. Thank you.

If you know of any information as to their whereabouts, please contact us at 201-891-2121.
