This week is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. Dispatchers are the ones behind the scene, who are often not recognized for their work. They are the ones who answer when you dial 911 when you need help. They are the calm voice on the phone, when your emergencies are new and raw and simultaneously attempt to calm the hysteria, while collecting and disseminating valuable information to those of us responding.

They are the first link in our chain of survival, that we depend on to get us the resources we need.

The Spotswood Police Department would like to thank our unsung heroes of public safety!!!

The Abominable Snowman just entered Spotswood Police Headquarters to file a complaint... Luckily, a monster translator was available to translate Abominable's complaint which read, "uuggh uhh ugghh uuugghhh ughh..." (followed by a lot more grunts). The monster translator said that Abominable was extremely upset when he drove around Spotswood and the neighborhood children were not outside in the snow. He said Abominable loves the snow, the children should too. He did not want to eat snow by himself, maybe have a snowball fight and make snow angels.

Let's show the Abominable Snowman that Spotswood loves the snow too!

SEVERE WEATHER ALERT🚨

As much as we all hope we don’t get as much snow as they are forecasting, we still have to be prepared in case they are correct. We are expecting 12-18 inches of snow which can bring down power/fiber lines and tree limbs. Please be aware of your surroundings and please remember the following.

-Remove all vehicles from snow routes as soon as the snow starts. If your vehicle is left in the roadways and DPW reports it for blocking their ability to remove the snow, then it will be ticketed and towed. Even if your vehicle is not on a snow route please remove them from the roadways to help clear your street more efficiently.

-If your power does go out and it is not life threatening, please call JCP&L directly. There is nothing we can do to speed up the process. If you need shelter due to a power outage and have nowhere to go then contact us and we will make arrangements with Spotswood OEM.

-If you see wires down on your property and need help identifying them, feel free to call us. If we determine that there is no threat to public safety (cable/fiber) it will be up to you to call it in to Comcast or Verizon so they can restore your service.

Please stay off the roads if possible to prevent being involved in an accident. Even if you feel you are driving safe, the other person may not be.

Thank You and Be Safe!!

ALL RESIDENTS: Please remember that calling The Spotswood Police Department because you are unsure what kind of wire is hanging low or has fallen is perfectly ok. Once we come out and determine it to be a copper or fiber wire (Comcast\Verizon) if it is on your property, it is up to you to call the respective utility companies and notify them. They will then put in a ticket request and dispatch a utility worker to come out and have it fixed.

We cannot do anything on our end unless it is life threatening (Live Power Lines only), a downed utility pole or a road hazard. The utility trucks are driving around fixing the wires in the order that the calls are received, so please do not stop them to ask them to fix it or to let them know of a wire down. They will advise you to call the main number to put in a request and they will eventually get to you.

Also please remember wires are still down everywhere and the roads are still icy. Please use caution when driving and remove all the snow from your vehicle.

Help us help you!!!

This seems to be the norm for tonight. Our Officers are out in full force dealing with several live power lines and trees down in the roadway.

Please stay off the roadways unless you absolutely have to drive. Watch for low hanging wires and branches. If there is an emergency dial 911. This picture is from one of 25 calls received for wires and branches down within the past 35 minutes. JCPL, PSEG and Verizon are notified and have advised us they are in "storm mode" and will respond as soon as they can.

Hopefully the storm calms soon, until then stay warm and most importantly stay safe!

***SCAM ALERT***

With the recent power outage, we are fielding complaints that residents are receiving phone calls from individuals claiming they are JCP&L employees, and are claiming that the power outage is a result of non-payment. They are then requesting residents to make payment via "moneypack" which can be bought at any drug store. Residents should be aware that the power outage was due to a bus striking a telephone pole on Devoe Ave.

These type of scams are a crime of opportunity. JCP&L will NOT contact you by phone and request you to drive to CVS to pay for bill, PLEASE DO NOT FALL VICTIM TO THIS!!!

Residents can contact the JCP&L 24HR hotline to confirm outages in their area.

Lastly, please report these types of incidents to the Spotswood Police Detective Bureau.

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!

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...

"Husky House is committed to the rescue, shelter, care and adoption of stray, abandoned and unwanted animals in the Tri-State area. We are also dedicated to furthering the public's education concerning the issues of proper pet care and the importance of spaying and neutering all dogs and cats alike. Husky House is dedicated to helping abandoned Siberian Huskies as well as all breeds of dogs, including mixes, have a second chance in life and a place to call home which they so richly deserve"

Here is a sneak peek, stay tuned for more!!!

***Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Drive***

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, which left thousands of Texans displaced from their homes without basic necessities, Spotswood Emergency Services to include Spotswood EMS, Spotswood Police Department, Spotswood Volunteer Fire Department - Enterprise Hook & Ladder Co., Inc., and Spotswood OEM mobilized and initiated a community collection outreach for items that families will need in the coming weeks.

Without honorarium, On August 30th and 31st between the hours of 8am and 8pm, Spotswood Emergency Service members volunteered their time to collect, inventory, and package essential items for Hurricane Harvey flood victims. Residents from Spotswood and surrounding towns flooded the parking lot with bottled water, personal hygiene products, cleaning supplies, non-perishable foods, pet supplies, and diapers.

We are proud to announce that in just 24 hours, an approximate total of over 70 heaping pallets of essential items were packaged and loaded to be shipped to Texas.

On behalf of all Spotswood Emergency Personnel we would like to thank the volunteers who found time to stop in and give a helping hand as well as those who donated.

We would like to thank Enterprise Iron, Brunswick Memorial Home, Jamesburg Elks Lodge 2180, and Curves Spotswood/EB NJ for their major contributions and assistance over the past two days.
