Hoboken National Night Out 2019

On Tuesday, August 6, 2019, The Hoboken Police Department and Stevens Police Department will be hosting “National Night Out in Hoboken”.  National Night Out, also known as “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, is an annual, nationwide event that allows the community workers to give back to their community.  The annual event will take place in Hoboken’s centrally located Church Square Park, where a large slate of family and youth-oriented activities is scheduled to take place from 5pm until 9pm.  Come out and enjoy free, delicious food from Gringo’s Tacos and Nigel’s Hot Dog Truck.  We will have a bounce house, water slide, spin art, a photo booth, and various giveaways throughout the night.  The Hoboken Fire Department will be present performing a “Jaws of Life” vehicle safety demonstration.  We will be conducting free child car seat inspections from inside the parking lot of the A J Demarest School (158 4th Street).  There will also be a tent set up for a designated sensory cool down zone for the benefit of children needing a period of downtime.

National Night Out is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

In addition to the participation of various police agencies, several local businesses will be out in full support of this night out against crime.   People of all ages are encouraged to attend.

The National Night Out event is celebrated by over 37 million participants and over 16,000 communities across the United States.

For further information or to set up a table for the event please contact Officer Anthony Fesken at feskena@hobokenpd.org (201-957-2127) and or Lieutenant Melissa Gigante at gigantem@hobokenpd.org or visit our website, www.Hobokenpd.com.

Child Safety Seat Inspection/Installation

The Hoboken Police Department offers child safety seat inspections and installations during the following days and times:

  • Daily from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm
  • Walk-ins on evenings and weekends are accepted
  • Appointments can be made by calling the Traffic Unit at 201-420-5109

Bicycle Registration

Bicycles are often stolen and many bicycle owners do not have their Serial Numbers recorded and in a safe place to provide to police. Without a description and serial number recorded, even if the stolen bicycle is recovered by police, it is very difficult to return the bicycle to its rightful owner.

By registering your bicycle/s with the Hoboken Police Department, it will make it easier to return your stolen bike to you should it be recovered.

  • Register your bicycle/s using our FILLABLE PDF FORM and bringing it to Police Headquarters.
  • You will need to complete a new form for each bicycle that you own (i.e., you have two bicycles, complete the form twice).
  • Please be as accurate as possible with filling in the information.
  • Be sure to print a copy of the completed registration form for your records!

 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER:

If your bike is stolen…

Report any stolen property immediately to your local law enforcement agency. If your bike was stolen in the city of Hoboken, please call the Hoboken Police Department non-emergency line at 201-420-2100 to make your report. Have your bicycle serial number and other identification information ready to provide for the report.

What if I sell my bike?

If you sell your bike after you have enrolled with the Hoboken Police Department Bike Registration Program, contact the Hoboken Police Department at 201-420-2100 to notify us of the transfer.

Lastly, don’t forget:

  • Always wear a helmet.
  • Always lock up your bike. Whether you use a bike lock or place it in a storage space, keep it under lock and key!
  • Ride your bike safely. Always follow the rules of the road and be sure to keep a watchful eye on young riders.

Impaired Driving Enforcement Crackdown to be Conducted Locally as Part of National Campaign

Police agencies from around New Jersey are gearing up for the state’s largest annual drunk driving crackdown. The 2017 “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Statewide Labor Day Crackdown begins August 18 and concludes on September 4. During the campaign, local and state law enforcement officers will conduct sobriety checkpoints and roving patrols targeting motorists who may be driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs.

“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” is a national campaign designed to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving through high-visibility enforcement backed up by educational activities including national radio and television advertisements, posters, banners and mobile video display signs. The campaign looks to curtail impaired driving during the busy summer travel season, including the Labor Day holiday period.

“Despite years of enforcement and public awareness efforts, too many people still make the unfortunate decision to get behind the wheel while impaired. Nearly 30% of all motor vehicle fatalities in New Jersey are alcohol related,” said Gary Poedubicky, Acting Director of the NJ Division of Highway Traffic Safety. “This is a zero tolerance campaign. If drivers are caught operating their vehicle while impaired they will be arrested,” he added.

As part of the initiative, the Division of Highway Traffic Safety provides grants to local police agencies throughout the state to run the two-week campaign. During last year’s crackdown, participating agencies made 1,649 DWI arrests.

Law enforcement agencies participating in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over 2017 crackdown offer the following advice:

  • If you plan to drink, designate a driver, someone who will not drink alcohol, before going out.
  • Take mass transit, a taxi or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
  • Spend the night where the activity is held.
  • Always buckle up, every ride, regardless of your seating position in the vehicle.  It’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
  • If you’re intoxicated and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member drive you to your doorstep.

HOBOKEN POLICE DEPARTMENT TO PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE-BACK DAY

6D-Web Button-round-400x400pxThe Hoboken Police Department is participating in the “National Take Back Initiative” which is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency (www.dea.gov).

This initiative, which will take place on Saturday, April 30 between the hours of 9:30 am and 2:15 pm, aims to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

The drop off sites will be a place where residents will be able to turn in unused or expired medication for safe disposal. The Hoboken Police will have drop off stations throughout the city, focusing on senior citizen residences. The idea is to make the program more accessible to those whom might otherwise have difficulty responding to one or two fixed locations. There will be a fixed location at Police Headquarters during the entire time. Additionally, there will be two moving sites that will spend over an hour at various senior resident buildings.

 

The drop off locations and times are as follows:

  • Hoboken Police Department, 106 Hudson Street: 9:30am to 2:15pm
  • 400 First Street: 9:30am to 11:45am
  • 221 Jackson Street: 9:30am to 11:45am
  • 514 Madison Street: 9:30am to 11:45am
  • 220 Adams Street: 12:00pm to 2:15pm
  • 76 Bloomfield Street: 12:00pm to 2:15pm
  • 311 13th  Street: 12:00pm to 2:15pm

Traffic Bureau will be conducting a D.W.I. checkpoint on Saturday, December 19, 2015

The goal of the program is to reduce citizen involvement/injury, due to D.W.I.-related collisions. Through implementation of this and similar events, the Hoboken Police Department hopes to significantly reduce accidents, injuries and property damage throughout our city. Informational pamphlets will be handed out on site.

The Hoboken Police Department is committed to working hand-in-hand with the citizens of Hoboken to provide a safe environment for the motoring public. For more information, contact the Hoboken Police Traffic Bureau at (201) 420-5109.
