Follow these tips to make sure Halloween is fun & safe! - Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going. -Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags. -Remain on well-lit streets -Always use the sidewalk or, if no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic. -Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks. - Remember, just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will! - Notify the Police of any suspicious or unlawful activity immediately.


Marijuana candy is illegal in New Jersey, but authorities are warning that there is a substantial amount available this year. Follow these recommendations and stay safe this Halloween: • Wear vinyl or non-latex gloves if handling possible marijuana candy. • Thoroughly wash hands after removing and disposing of the gloves properly to prevent potential ingestion of any drug particles. • If you believe you or your child has received marijuana candy, immediately contact your local police department.

The officer reportedly suffered brain injuries (doctors are hopeful for a positive outcome), skull, facial and neck fractures and numerous lacerations. We are praying for the Officer, his family, and all of the Port Authority Police Department as they deal with this tragedy.

Our deepest condolences to Sgt. Howarth and all of the Union County Sheriff's K-9 Unit.
