***Snow Reminder***

It is supposed to snow tonight into tomorrow. Whether or not this accumulates, just in case, the Spotswood Police Department would like to remind all those who may or may not have work, may or may not want to park their car in the street tonight and/or may or may not be driving tomorrow... Please do not park in the road as it is difficult for the trucks to plow (pictured below-possibly your car if this snow storm gets out of control 😁) and as per most streets marked with a sign, you can't (also pictured below). Lastly, if it accumulates, especially on your cars, please clean them off before driving! We want to ensure the safety of everyone on the roadways, our workers, residents and pedestrians. Park in your driveways if you can. As always, thank you, stay safe and enjoy your day!

***Winter Wool For A Cure***

#WinterWoolForACure was established in 2017 and will continue annually throughout the remainder of the winter immediately following NoShave November. This cause was created in order to find a cure for our youngest Officer, Trent Powers, and all those who suffer from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The Spotswood Police Department, with your help, will raise money to continue the fight in the search for a cure. Below is the link to Powers Promise where you can find out more about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Trent Powers and how to donate!

Take part in the cause, grow a beard, post your Winter Wool, and donate!

Donate here: powerspromise.org/

The Spotswood Police Department would like to thank the community for all their support in advance!

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), 91 Americans die from opioid overdose per day... and the rates, continue to rise. Let that sink in! On almost a daily basis, the Police have been placed on the front-line, in charge of combating this epidemic at the ground level. As pictured in this post; many citizens do not agree with how cases involving opioids are handled, they see the outcome, not the story. Positioned on the frontline of this growing tragedy, the Police do all that they can do to help with the outlets that are currently available to them.

This fundraiser will give the Spotswood Police Department another outlet to help fight addiction by raising money for The City of Angels NJ, Inc (a non-profit organization). Along with City of Angels, we will form a partnership and be on the frontline together in joint effort to help diminish the growth of addiction and death. This new partnership will offer immediate assistance to those in need, whether this be an individual who has overdosed, one who is suffering from an addiction and/or a family member that just needs the support.

The City of Angels works with anyone needing help regardless of whether they have health insurance. There are no monetary charges for their services, including interventions, recovery support, programs and activities. Every donation to this fundraiser will be dedicated to help The City of Angels advance their services and will truly strengthen our partnership moving forward. Providing the overall best service to our community is not only our duty, but also our goal. To all those who believe we may or may not do enough... We value your opinions and have utilized them as a catalyst, to initiate a proactive police approach toward opioid addiction. Every comment counts. We are confident we can put a halt to this growing epidemic with your support and continued help!

Thank you to South River Police Department for joining forces with us in effort to combat this epidemic. Also, Sportika Sports for being our first sponsor and agreeing to host this amazing event! All details are to follow! Spread the word! Together we can make a difference...
