The Roselle Park Police Department (RPPD) will be a safety seminar for Roselle Park senior citizens at the Casano Community Center on Tuesday, January 24th, at 11:30 a.m.
The Community Oriented Policing (COP) Unit will cover topics that will include an overview of past fraud scams that have occurred in the borough as well as the most-noted scams as listed by the State Attorney General’s office as well as tips for crime prevention.
There will also be a Q&A session after the presentation to address any concerns or questions.
“We encourage all of our senior residents to take an active approach in crime prevention and we hope to see you there,” stated Police Chief Paul W. Morrison.
The Casano Community Center is located at 314 Chestnut Street. Anyone with more questions can contact police headquarters at (908) 245-2300.
Additionally, RPPD is working together with local businesses to spread awareness of fraud scams that occur throughout New Jersey.
Participating establishments have agreed to post fliers in their windows from the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs (DCA). The fliers – printed in both English and Spanish – state the common phone scams and the telephone number for the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs.
Local businesses include Costa’s Restaurant, Chestnut Hill Market, Nealtican Restaurant, Chestnut Hardware, El Rancho Dorado Market, World of Liquors, and Joe & Jodi’s Barber Shop.
