The North Bergen Police Department is hosting four community meetings throughout the township in July. These informal sessions are a great forum for North Bergen residents to voice any concerns and discuss issues in person with members of the police department.
The program, known as N.B. TAPS (North Bergen Township Alternative Policing Strategy), was initiated last 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:
- Wednesday, July 12: Downtown Public Library, 2123 Kennedy Blvd.
- Wednesday, July 19: Our Lady of Fatima Church, Lower Level, 8101 Kennedy Blvd.
- Thursday, July 20: Uptown Public Library, 8411 Bergenline Ave.
- Tuesday, July 25: North Bergen Town Hall Chambers, Lower Level, 4233 Kennedy Blvd.
