MPD to Host National Night Out Aug 4 PDF Print E-mail

National Night Out logoThe Montclair Police Department’s Community Services Unit (CSU) will participate in a National Night Out event Tuesday, August 4, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Rather than a single central location for the event as was done in the past, the MPD will host events in each ward to make the event most convenient for all residents.

First Ward: Officer Glenda Rivera at St. James Church, 581 Valley Road.

Second Ward: Officer Rikki Cook at the Edgemont Park field house (Valley Road).

Third Ward: Officer Christopher Barnes at the Salvation Army Citadel, 13 Trinity Place.

Fourth Ward: Sgt. Tyrone Williams, Jr. at the Community Service Center, 11 Pine St.

By hosting the event in each ward, residents and business owners get to know their CSU ward liaisons while learning about safety and crime prevention. In turn, members of the MPD come to better understand the communities they serve.

National Night Out is a community-police awareness-raising event created in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada. It is held the first Tuesday in August each year.

MPD Officers Issuing Tickets for Treats PDF Print E-mail

ticket for treat at Tiny ElephantMontclair Police officers are looking to hand out a lot of tickets this summer -- not as a penalty, but rather as a reward to kids they see wearing helmets while biking.

The ticket rewards program was initiated by local business owner Tracey Diamond, who approached the Montclair Police Department with the idea after reading about a similar program in another town.

“I reached out to a friend on the police force, who loved the idea and helped me to connect to the right department, leading me to Sergeant Williams of the Community Service Unit,” said Tracey. “A lot of my clients are in the food business, so I reached out to a few that would represent the different sections of town, causing no overlap in the project based on where tickets would be handed out.”

Officers Jacqueline Allen and F. “Rikki” Cook of the Montclair Police Department Community Service Unit (CSU) attended a North Mountain Avenue block party last Sunday, where they provided valuable safety information to attendees. Local resident Selma Avdicevic hosted the party which was attended by many children ranging from 3 to 16 years of age, as well as adults.

Officers Allen and Cook covered topics such as bicycle safety, fraud protection, distracted driving, dealing with bullying, and how to make your home safe. The children also had an opportunity to see the inside of a patrol car and interacted one-on-one with the officers, thereby furthering positive police-youth relations.
