Message from Montgomery Township Police Director James Gill

 

I would like to start by saying, during this unprecedented crisis, I am extremely proud of our community for pulling together. Our community understands the risks we face and are adhering to the orders for the betterment of their family, friends and neighbors.

As you all know by now, the municipal building is closed with modified staffing in all departments. Please do not come to the police department or the municipal building unless it is absolutely necessary. Our officers may contact you by phone to take your report if possible. Please provide a good call back number to the dispatcher when calling for police service so we can establish contact with you. If we respond to your home, please step out and greet our officers outdoors and don’t be offended if our officers ask you to do this. We are attempting to implement physical distancing, for your health and safety; as well as ours. Help us to stay available to help you, should the need arise.

With that in mind, we want to assure you that we are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.. As always, we are simply a phone call away. For Emergency situations call 911, for non-emergencies call 908-359-3222 (dispatch) or 908-874-3333 (offices).

We would like to remind our residents that phone scams and frauds, as well as false “Go Fund Me” campaigns are being employed to steal money and identity during the coronavirus pandemic. Government agencies such as the FBI, IRS, Sherriff’s Departments, and Police Departments will never contact you by phone and threaten to arrest you if you’re not willing to provide an immediate payment by credit card or through other means. In addition, they also will not ask you by phone for your personal information such as names, birthdates, social security numbers, computer logins/ passwords, etc. Never provide personal information and identifiers or issue any type of payment over the phone or via the internet unless you are 100% certain who you are dealing with. New Jersey has formed a COVID-19 Fraud Task Force, a joint federal-state effort to investigate and prosecute unlawful and misleading activities related to COVID-19. To report any instance of price gouging, hoarding of medical supplies, charity scams, procurement fraud, scam calls, or any other related unlawful activity, please call 866-720-5721 or email disaster@leo.gov. Price gouging is defined as increases more than 10 percent higher than the price at which merchandise was sold during the normal course of business prior to the state of emergency. See New Jersey’s Consumer Fraud Act for more information. For some examples of types of COVID-19 scams, go to: https://covid19.nj.gov/search.html?query=scams. Also, we’d like to remind the community that crime takes no holidays and to please lock your homes and vehicles at all times to decrease the likelihood of becoming a victim of burglary / theft.

Lastly, please adhere to the orders and restrictions that have been issued. Comply with physical distancing and masking recommendations. Minimize travel to essential purposes only. If you must travel do so safely and with due regard for your neighbors. I’m sure everyone who has driven or gone for a walk recently has noticed an obvious up-tick in pedestrian traffic; as well as bicycle traffic. Share the road, slow down, be safe. Avoid congregating, and locations that promote congregation. Maintain physical distancing and wear masks as you use the parks and pathways again, beginning this Saturday. Please realize the last thing we as police officers want to do is to tell kids, friends, and families to stop playing sports, socializing or playing on the swings and slides. We don’t want to tell you to stop, we’re required to tell you to stop, at least temporarily for the well being of us all. Remember that we will go home to our families who are home like you, so we understand the challenges you are facing.

We are always here to help you through good times and bad. Let’s all work together and ensure all our families get through this crisis as safe and healthy as possible.

On behalf of the entire Montgomery Township Police Department,


Captain James M. Gill,
Police Director

A COVID-19 DEATH AT STONEBRIDGE

Montgomery Township regrets to inform the public that a death has taken place at the Stonebridge Senior Living Community. Our condolences go out to the loved ones of this community member. Please read this Statement from Stonebridge regarding this second confirmed COVID-19 related death in Montgomery Township.


 

PROPOSED PROPERTY TAX GRACE PERIOD EXTENSION

On Tuesday, Governor Murphy signed his second COVID-related order concerning property taxes, this time permitting municipalities to extend the grace period for property tax payments, currently May 10, to June 1. That means penalties and back interest would not be assessed so long as payments are received before June 1. Payments after June 1 would still be assessed fees and interest back to the original due date.

The Montgomery Township Committee’s next regularly scheduled meeting is on May 7 at which time a required vote will be taken on implementing the extension locally. Mayor Sadaf Jaffer indicated that she was supportive of such a measure and is optimistic that the Township Committee would agree to provide this relief in order to assist residents during the global health emergency.


 

LOCAL PARKS TO REOPEN SATURDAY

Montgomery Township will reopen local parks and pathways effective sunrise Saturday May 2nd. This opening is consistent with Wednesday’s announcement by Governor Murphy that state parks will reopen at that time. This decision, as with the decision to close the parks on April 7, was made based on the unanimous recommendation of the township administration, police, and health departments.

Importantly, physical distancing requirements remain in effect throughout the parks. The continued availability of park access is predicated on the adherence to safety and health guidelines. No social gatherings or sports will be permitted. Playground equipment will remain closed to prevent children from congregating in close proximity. Please wear masks and maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others, except among those living in the same household. Police will patrol the parks to ensure social distancing rules are observed. Remember to treat community members with respect and consideration. If you are concerned about something you see in the parks or elsewhere, call the police department. Thank you.

MONTGOMERY POLICE DEPT. MESSAGE

POLICE ADVISE PEDESTRIAN / CYCLIST / MOTORIST CAUTION

With the warmer weather approaching and more residents home due to the current health crisis, there is an expected increase in the number of people walking and cycling on the Township roadways. The Police Department and Township want to share some laws and safety tips to ensure that every pedestrian, bicyclist, and motorist is safe while sharing the road.

Pedestrian Tips:

When crossing the road, please look left, right, and left again and be alert for turning cars. Pedestrians should try to cross the street at marked crosswalks at the corners of roads whenever possible and obey all traffic signals, especially “Walk/Don’t Walk” indications. If crossing in other locations, yield the right of way to vehicles and do not assume cars will stop. Whenever available, walk on a sidewalk, and if walking on a roadway, face traffic so that you can see vehicles approaching on your side of the road. If walking at dusk or after dark, wear reflective clothing so drivers can easily see you. Finally, please stay sober and be alert when walking. Walking impaired, either because of substance or distraction such as a cell phone, can greatly increase your chances of being struck.

Bicycle Safety Tips:

Bicyclists, unlike pedestrians, should ride on the right side of the road with traffic and make sure to obey all traffic signals . Travel no more than two abreast or ride single file if traffic would otherwise be impeded. Try to avoid biking on busier roads whenever possible. Wear comfortable and reflective clothing, especially when riding at dusk or after dark. Bikes must have a light on the front and back visible up to 500 feet while riding at night. Finally, young people under the age of 17 are required to wear an approved helmet when cycling, roller skating, in-line skating or skateboarding.

Drivers:

Motorists in New Jersey are required by law to yield to pedestrians in a marked crosswalk. Failure to observe the law may subject you to 2 points on your driver’s license, a $200 fine plus court expenses, an insurance surcharge, and 15 days of community service. Please be extra alert for pedestrians and bikers when driving at dusk or after dark.

Thank you to all for sharing the road with consideration and caution!

CDC PRAISE FOR MONTGOMERY HEALTH DEPT.

We want to share the good news that the CDC has congratulated the Montgomery Twp. Health Dept. in an April 22 letter for its national accreditationMontgomery Twp Public Health Shield by the PHAB – the Public Health Accreditation Board, calling it ‘an impressive achievement’ and ‘an extraordinary accomplishment’ that shows the community the Department meets national standards and is committed  to continuous improvement.


 

MONTGOMERY HEALTH DEPT. MESSAGE

Wear a Mask in Public to Protect Yourself and to Protect Others

This is a reminder to residents and all community partners to wear a cloth face covering, when out in public, to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Growing evidence suggests the virus can spread:

  • Before people show symptoms (pre-symptomatic) and
  • From people who have the virus but never show symptoms (asymptomatic)

Cloth face coverings help prevent spread of COVID-19 in these situations. Wearing a mask when in public helps protect you and those around you.

When going to a supermarket, pharmacy or other life-sustaining business, you must wear a mask to enter the store. Your mask will help protect our critical workers, like cashiers, those stocking shelves + pharmacists. Your mask protects me and mine protects you and in turn your family.

Wear a Mask. Protect Others. Protect Yourself. Protect Your Family.

 

New Dates for COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing at RVCC

Somerset County Freeholder Director Shanel Y.
