The North Bergen Police Department regularly hosts community meetings to get to know local residents. This January they will host four meetings at different locations throughout the township, where residents can meet the officers who patrol their neighborhoods, and share any local concerns.
The meetings are part of a program known as N.B. TAPS (North Bergen Township Alternative Policing Strategy), designed to enhance police-community relations in the township. Residents get to meet and discuss issues face-to-face with the officers who serve their immediate community, 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:
- Monday, Jan. 8: Our Lady of Fatima Church, Lower Level, 8011 Kennedy Blvd.
- Thursday, Jan. 11: Uptown Public Library, 8411 Bergenline Ave.
- Wednesday, Jan. 17: Downtown Public Library, 2123 Kennedy Blvd.
- Tuesday, Jan. 30: North Bergen Town Hall Chambers, Lower Level, 4233 Kennedy Blvd.
