♦ Prominently Display Your House Number
The New Milford Police Department would like to remind residents to properly display house numbers so they are clearly visible from the street in order for an efficient Police, Fire or EMS response. Residences without proper house numbers visible from the street have the potential to be issued a Borough Ordinance Summons. Any questions or concerns, contact P.O Michael Lafrano at the New Milford Police Department (201)-261-1400.
♦ The Hart Program
Prosecutor Grewal has recently announced a new initiative called the HART program (Heroin Addiction Recovery Team), which is in partnership with CarePlus, the Lyndhurst, Paramus, and Mahwah Police Departments. This is a walk-in program for those seeking recovery from substance abuse, and those individuals will be connected to comprehensive care. Assessments are provided by CarePlus clinicians with specialties in mental health and substance abuse counseling and they will work to coordinate needed care with a provider, which accepts that individual’s benefit coverage or has funding for those without insurance. Individuals may turn in drug paraphernalia without arrest, however individuals with warrants for their arrest will have to address those issues before being connected to services. The walk-in hours are Wednesday’s from 9a-5p. No appointment necessary, and you do not have to be a Bergen County resident to utilize this service. Transportation may be provided to treatment sites.
The Stationhouse Adjustment Program allows law enforcement officers to resolve minor issues without the necessity of filing a formal Complaint with the court. Click here for more information
