Message From Chief: On behalf of the men and women of the Raritan Borough Police Department, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the departmentï¿½s website.
I am proud to have been given the opportunity to work with all the outstanding members of this department and to serve a community which I have grown to be a part of in my twenty eight years with the Borough.
I can assure you the staff and officers of our department are committed to making a positive difference in our community by providing both effective and efficient police services. It is our goal to provide the residents and those just passing through with the best policing practices available.
It is my hope that our website will keep you better informed regarding upcoming police/community events and the services that our agency provides. You can also follow our police department on Facebook, Twitter and sign-up with NIXLE to receive current news, weather and traffic updates affecting the Borough of Raritan.
In an effort to strive to provide the best possible police service, The Raritan Police Department has purchased and will be wearing Body Worn Cameras. Every sworn officer of the department has been issued a body worn camera and will wear it daily.
These cameras have been purchased not only to protect the public, but also enhance our ability to investigate allegations made against officers.
We are providing the following photographs so each member of the public is aware of what to look for when dealing with our officers.
The first photograph is a picture of the Body worn camera, the second is how the cameras will be worn on a uniformed officer and the final photo is an approximate location where the cameras will be worn by any officer in plain clothes.
