Welcome

Message from the Chief

It’s part of our Mission to build and nurture relationships within the community in an effort to increase the quality of life within Florham Park.  To that end the Police Department has reached out to several members of the business community to provide Active Shooter/Violent Intruder training to help increase awareness and prepare our citizens in their everyday lives.  Below is a testimonial from a local business who received this training;

“We are thankful to the Florham Park Police Department for supporting and presenting the Violent Intruder Power Point (PP) presentation to Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP personnel.

We reached out to the FP Police Department to preview the PP and schedule a presentation in our office.  We wanted to be proactive and felt it was important to educate our personnel.  Besides safety, another compelling reason to conduct the presentation was the recently held College of Saint Elizabeth’s  Active Shooter drills.  We had to alert personnel of the drill event due to street closures and police activity so we thought it was a good opportunity to share and educate our personnel on how to react in such a situation.”

The Florham Park Police Department is willing to present this training to all members of the community.  If you are part of a Neighborhood Watch Group, business, religious or public entity and feel this information will be helpful to your members please contact my office to schedule a meeting.

I can be reached directly at 973-410-5440. 

Thank you and be safe!!
