Be The Eyes of the Neighborhood

Rochelle Park Police Chief Robert Flannelly has sent out an urgent message to township residents, stressing the importance for everyone to “Hear It! ... See It! ... Report It!” In other words, if you are suspicious about anything that you feel is out of the ordinary in your neighborhood, contact the police immediately. Also attempt to obtain as much information as you can to relay to the police, including a description of the person(s), a vehicle description, license plate number and direction vehicle is traveling.
Chief Robert Flannelly advises that you should be aware of how sophisticated burglars have become. They prefer to use fast, expensive cars. They tend to dress neatly, and they appear to fit into the areas they are casing. A burglar may ring a doorbell to see if someone is at home. If you answer the door, the person may act lost or ask for a nonexistent person or address. Even if a burglar alarm is installed in your home, burglars tend to be in and out in a matter of minutes, targeting the master bedroom as the probable place where valuables are kept.
Residents should also be aware of criminals posing as utility workers or delivery persons. All utility employees carry proper identification, and will not be offended if you ask to see their credentials. Flannelly cautions residents to be wary of unscheduled visits by utility workers, of delivery persons with unexpected packages. If you have any doubts, report it.
