The North Bergen Police Department is hosting four informal N.B. TAPS meetings throughout the township in September. North Bergen residents are encouraged to come voice their concerns and discuss issues in person with members of the police department.
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, Dec. 13: Uptown Public Library, 8411 Bergenline Ave.
- Wednesday Dec. 14: Downtown Public Library, 2123 Kennedy Blvd.
- Thursday Dec. 15: North Bergen Town Hall Chambers, Lower Level, 4233 Kennedy Blvd.
- Thursday Dec. 22: Our Lady of Fatima Church, Lower Level, 8101 Kennedy Blvd.
