The North Bergen Police Department is hosting four community meetings throughout the township in August. 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 get to 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, Aug. 8: Uptown Public Library, 8411 Bergenline Ave.
- Wednesday, Aug. 10: Downtown Public Library, 2123 Kennedy Blvd.
- Tuesday, Aug. 15: North Bergen Town Hall Chambers, Lower Level, 4233 Kennedy Blvd.
- Thursday, Aug. 17: Our Lady of Fatima Church, Lower Level, 8101 Kennedy Blvd.
