At 1230 hours the below pictured gentleman, temporarily named Beans, stopped by Spotswood Police Headquarters to ask for directions... Beans stated, "I don't know where I'm going, but I sure know where I've been, and I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time, but here I go again on my own, going down the only road I've ever known." He further stated that he does not know his name or where he lives, but he does recall his friend Cheese coming in for help once, so he wanted to give it a shot. Beans stated he loves Whitesnake/David Coverdale and is a big supporter of the Spotswood Police Department.

If you know where Beans should go or where he's been please help him out. Until then Beans is safe and secure at the Spotswood Police Department for the time being. Thank you for the help!

*Press Release*

On 06/22/2017 at approximately 1800 hours, Patrolman Sabatino observed a moderately detailed 4 cylinder Ford, that your grandmother would drive, with debatably semi-okay graphics, parked in a Spotswood Police patrol vehicle parking space. Patrolman Sabatino, seen here ticketing the offender vehicle, was then asked to make a statement. Patrolman Sabatino stated, "I'm sick and tired of this blatant disrespect for our Patrol vehicles. The South River Police Department continually attempts to chameleon their way into our fleet." Patrolman Sabatino then said, "I ain't having that, not up in here."

The Spotswood Police Department is proud to recognize three of our officers. Patrolman Richard Sasso, Patrolman Michael Genovese, and Patrolman Brandon Nemes were recognized by Mothers Against Drunk Driving "MADD" for performing above and beyond their call of duty to apprehend impaired drivers. These officers were presented awards yesterday for their outstanding Drunk Driving Enforcement efforts in 2016.

On September 5, 1980, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers was incorporated and the mission as stated in its Articles of Incorporation were “To aid the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, to aid the families of such victims and to increase public awareness of the problem of drinking and drugged driving."

These officers remain a potent force in the battle against impaired driving and their work has made Spotswood a safer place by preventing impaired drivers from causing crashes which are often fatal.

If you or a loved one has been affected by drunk driving MADD has a 24hr help hotline @ 877-MADD-HELP

in-person sales or exchanges, The Spotswood Police Department has established a "Safe Exchange Zone" in the front parking lot of the Spotswood Municipal Building located at 77 Summerhill Road. The marked area is well lit and under 24 hour surveillance.

While the " Safe Exchange Zone" provides an area for buyers and sellers to meet, it is important to remember that people you meet online are strangers and can pose dangers. When making arrangements to complete online transactions face-to-face, residents should be reminded of the following.

-Attempt to complete all transactions during daylight hours.
-Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
-Notify friends or family about the details of the exchange beforehand.
-Never invite strangers to your home or agree to meet at a strangers home.
-Reconsider any transaction with and individual who refuses to meet at a designated Safe Exchange Zone.

The Zone is free for anyone to use. Police Department Employees will not act as a witness or be a part of these transactions.
