The North Bergen Police Department is hosting four informal community meetings throughout the township in November. North Bergen residents are encouraged to come voice their concerns and discuss issues in person with members of the police department.
The initiative, known as N.B. TAPS (North Bergen Township Alternative Policing Strategy), was initiated earlier this year by Chief of Police Robert Dowd in order to enhance police-community relations. Residents get to meet the officers who patrol their neighborhoods, and the officers learn about any matters of concern directly from the residents.
All meetings will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. The dates and locations are as follows:
- Tuesday, Nov. 15: Uptown Public Library, 8411 Bergenline Ave.
- Thursday Nov. 17: North Bergen Town Hall Chambers, Lower Level, 4233 Kennedy Blvd.
- Wednesday Nov. 23: Applied Housing Community Room, 2615 Kennedy Blvd.
- Monday, Nov. 28: Our Lady of Fatima Church, Lower Level, 8101 Kennedy Blvd.
