Borough to Provide Safety Support for Traditional Halloween Activities
Dear Residents:
Please be advised that in response to the recent influx of luring incidents in Bergen County and the severe weather conditions predicted for the next few days, the Borough of Glen Rock is implementing an 8 p.m. curfew on October 30, 2012. The curfew will be strictly enforced. Additionally, the Borough strongly recommends that parents implement an 8 p.m. curfew for Halloween night.
As always, the Borough frowns on customary "Goosey Night" or "Mischief Night" practices. Please advise children accordingly: The deliberate destruction of someone else's property is a criminal offense on any night of the year and will be treated as such.
The Glen Rock Police Department is taking a proactive approach to address these serious issues and encourages parents to do the same. While the Glen Rock Police Department will have extra patrols out on both nights, there is no substitute for a parent's vigilant gaze.
Parents can protect their children by walking with them as they trick or treat this Halloween and by making sure that minors are attended. It is important to know where your children are going and who they will be with. Talk to your children about strangers and how to react if approached. An inch of precaution can save miles in heartache.
Finally, please report any suspicious individuals or behavior to the police immediately. Dial 911 for emergencies and (201) 652-3800 for non-emergencies. Time is of the absolute essence in these situations.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. This Halloween, be safe and be well - well informed, well prepared, and well connected.
Please stay tuned for an important message about storm preparation.

  1. No offense but no thanks. I don't know how you found me but if you read my blog, I think you'd understand I have no interest in the subject matter of your blog. Appreciate the invite. Good luck,
