Winter Message 2015-2016

Happy Holidays! 

All of us at the Ridgefield Park Police Department wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.

I am sure you are all aware of the recent terror attacks in France and threats elsewhere in the world. I want to remind you to remain vigilant during this holiday season, to pay extra attention to your surroundings, and to report any suspicious packages or activity immediately.

The winter season is upon us and I want to provide some reminders to follow during this holiday season and for any upcoming snow storms:

Please follow the No Parking When Roads are Snow Covered signs whenever there is an impending snow storm.  These storms are generally forecasted far enough in advance to give everyone the proper time to remove their vehicles from the No Parking side of the streets.

Do not rely on listening for public announcements via the patrol vehicles on patrol.  The announcement for removing vehicles will be disseminated via the reverse 911 system, Nixle, and the Ridgefield Park Police Department’s website.  Remember, all vehicles remaining on the snow side are subject to ticketing and towing.

All residents and businesses are reminded to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks and storefronts.  The village ordinance requires snow removal at the end of each storm.  If you will be away for any period of time and would be unable to take care of the removal yourself, please make arrangements with someone in advance to have the snow removed before you leave.

Again, best wishes for a safe, healthy and prosperous new year!
