Congratulations to the Crusader Football team on another great win last night. Bound Brook 41 Brearley 34

With continued support, cooperation, and partnership with Smalley School Superintendent Dr. Gallagher and Principal Delgaizo, this week I have implemented the Adopt-A-Cop program back into the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. Our goal is to develop a positive relationship and create an open dialogue between the students and police. The officers will strive to meet with their assigned classes every day throughout the school year. During the visits officers will have discussions about topics such as stranger awareness, pedestrian and bicycle safety, bullying, and whatever else they feel beneficial including free time and questions and answers. Building partnerships today for a better tomorrow. ~ Chief Vito Bet ~

The Bound Brook Police Department is joining efforts with other towns across the country in partnership with American Society of Civil Engineers in recognizing October 10th as “PUT THE BRAKES ON FATALITIES DAY.” The national initiative was designed to unite the country in moving toward ZERO fatalities for one full day by encouraging motorists to obey all traffic laws, including buckling up, every ride; driving the posted speed limit; avoiding distractions (cell phones) while driving; and always being safe and sober behind the wheel. Our goal is to experience a day when all roadway users are extra vigilant and there are no fatalities on our roadways. A proclamation will be read at tonight’s council meeting declaring October 10th as “PUT THE BRAKES ON FATALITIES DAY” in Bound Brook. Please drive, walk, and ride your bicycles extra careful today and share this post. Thank you. Additional information is available by logging on to www.asce.org/brakesonfatalities ~ Chief Vito Bet ~

The Bound Brook Police Department is taking part in the relief efforts for Puerto Rico which was devastated by Hurricane Maria. Bound Brook knows very well how flooding can impact a community. We also know the comforting feeling of receiving the assistance when we needed it the most. Now is the time to pay it forward and do the same for others who need our help. I am designating Bound Brook Police Department as a drop off location for the relief efforts. Storage space is being provided by the Congregational Church and arrangements for a shipping container have been made. Donations can be dropped off 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at headquarters lobby. The following is a list of items that can be donated but not limited to: water, baby food, non-perishable foods, diapers, batteries, hygiene products, feminine hygiene products, clothing (new), first aid supplies, toiletries, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, garbage bags, towels, pillows, blankets, dish soap, laundry detergent, pet food, and any other items of necessity. Let’s come together as a community and and help the people of Puerto Rico get through this devastating time. Thank you in advance and please share this post. ~ Chief Vito Bet ~

On September 28, 2017, Bound Brook Police Department helped support Smalley School with the “Safe Routes to School” initiative by providing free helmets to students who ride their bicycles to school every day. Chief Vito Bet along with Det. Munoz and Mrs. Delgaizo, Principal of Smalley School collaborated to make sure the students’ safety is the first priority as they leave home to arrive for school. Chief Bet and Det. Munoz came into the school to speak with the select students who ride their bicycles to school on a daily basis about their safety while riding their bicycles; specifically, if they were to fall while performing their “tricks” or the possibility of getting hit. With the support of Bound Brook Police Department, Smalley School students will now be safer on their way to school and on their way home from school, ensuring the continuation of the Bound Brook School District’s and Bound Brook Police Department’s “Safer Routes to School” initiative! “A sincere THANK YOU to Smalley School Principal, Mrs. Delgaizo and Superintendent, Dr. Gallagher for their continued support to keep the positive partnership between the school system and the police department. Thank you to School Resource Officer Det. Munoz for doing a great job. Keep up the good work. More programs coming. ~ Chief Vito Bet ~
