Traffic and pedestrian safety is the paramount concern for the Traffic Bureau of the Ridgefield Park Police Department. We are continually working to improve safety and address the increasing volume of vehicular and pedestrian traffic in our community. The Traffic Bureau is also committed to residents’ concerns of traffic and parking violations on their streets by taking proactive and corrective measures to solve problems promptly.


Responsibilities of the Traffic Bureau include the overseeing of all crossing guards, police vehicles, street signs, parking meters, parking permits, handicap parking, crosswalks, traffic details, road work, towing ordinance, traffic statistics and the review of all accident reports. The bureau also assists with the 4th of July Parade, the Rag-A-Muffin Parade, Veterans Day & Pearl Harbor Day, Little League Opening Day Parade, and the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. Other efforts include DWI roadblocks, motor vehicle inspection and pedestrian safety checkpoints, and participation in NJDHTS’s “Click It or Ticket” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”, as well as training and educating officers in an ever advancing environment of traffic enforcement.


In 2020 the Traffic Bureau joined many other communities by incorporating the Street Smart NJ campaign. Street Smart NJ is a public education campaign coordinated by the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) that aims to raise awareness of pedestrian and motorist laws and change the behaviors that lead to pedestrian and cyclist crashes. The campaign focuses on engaging and educated the public rather than simply issuing summonses. Learn more here.
