Car Theft Advisory

Residents Urged to Lock Car Doors After Recent Break-Ins

The Essex Fells Police Department would like to remind residents to always lock their car doors to recent car burglaries and vehicle thefts in the area. The vehicles that were entered were left unlocked.


Residents are also reminded to remove any valuable items inside their vehicles such as GPS units, iPods and other electronic devices. As always please call us to report any suspicious activity.

To Shred or Not to Shred?

The Borough of Essex Fells is considering offering a “Shredding Day, ” whereby residents would be given the opportunity to bring personal documents (those one may not be comfortable simply throwing in the common trash) to the town for destruction.  We are evaluating whether to contract with a paper shredding company to provide the shredding service one Saturday morning at the Service Building.  We are interested in your opinion as to whether you think this is something of which you would take advantage.

Please email us at administrator@essexfellsboro.com.

Police Unity Tour

Essex Fells Police Sgt. Scott Jones will once again for the 8th year in a row be participating in the event.

The Police Unity Tour Mission

The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty.

The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum.

The Police Unity Tour History

In May 1997 the Police Unity Tour was organized, by Officer Patrick P. Montuore of the Florham Park Police Department, with the hope of bringing public awareness of Police Officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices.

We started with 18 riders on a four day fund-raising bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. which raised $18,000.00. This May we had over 1900 members nationwide who made the trip, and we are proud to announce that we were able to donate 1,997,000 dollars to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, bringing our total donations to nearly 18 Million Dollars.

In late 2005, the Police Unity Tour pledged $5 Million in support of the National Law Enforcement Museum.  Inspired by our commitment and our motto, “WE RIDE FOR THOSE WHO DIED” the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has selected our organization to be the sponsor of the Museum’s Hall of Remembrance.

Having completed the $5 Million commitment to the Museum in 2009 the Police Unity Tour dedicated the 2010 ride to the restoration of the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The $1.1 Million restoration project includes the re-engraving, coating and sealing of the 18,983 names on the memorial as well as the cleaning of the walls and other memorial improvements.

In 2011 the Police Unity Tour became the official sponsor of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund’s “Officer of the Month Program”. Officers of the Month are honored at a special awards luncheon each May in Washington, DC during National Police Week, and they are featured in the Memorial Fund’s annual calendar. The Police Unity Tour is also proud to sponsor the NLEOMF’s “Recently Fallen Alerts.”

Outstanding Senior Citizen Awards at 41st Annual Senior Citizen Luncheon

Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. presented six Essex County residents with Outstanding Senior Citizen Awards during the 41st Annual Senior Citizen Luncheon at The Chandelier in Belleville on Thursday, May 5th. Approximately 150 Essex County seniors attended the annual celebration, which recognizes members of Essex County’s various senior clubs for their dedication and commitment to the program.

“Congratulations to our Senior Club members who are being recognized today. Whether you offered a kind word for your fellow members, gave a ride to someone who needs transportation, organized a trip or served as a club officer, your volunteer efforts are the reason this program continues to thrive,” DiVincenzo said. “Your actions contributed to a welcoming atmosphere where others can strike up new friendships, spend an afternoon and remain connected to their community. Thank you for Putting Essex County and our Seniors First,” he added.

PSE&G Offers Electricity Safety Tips

In the United States, on average 400 people die from electrocution and 4,400 are injured each year. Most of these deaths and injuries can be prevented. May is National Electric Safety Month and Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G), New Jersey’s largest utility, takes this opportunity to remind customers of a dozen ways to avoid electrical safety hazards.

Let’s Go Fishing in Essex County!

Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. and the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs invite the public to participate in Essex County’s 2016 Fishing Derbies. The free events will be held in seven locations in the Essex County Park System.

“Our fishing derbies are an excellent opportunity for our children to enjoy the historic Essex County Park System in a different and fun way. You’ll have a great time creating your own ‘big fish’ stories and spending some quality time with your friends and family in some of the most beautiful parks in the area,” DiVincenzo said. “I invite everyone to come out, cast their lines, Experience Essex and take a look at the improvements we are making to revitalize our parks,” he noted.

Sponsored by the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, each derby is free and open to children ages 15 and younger. All children must be accompanied by an adult and bring their own fishing pole, bait, bucket and chair. Prizes in various age categories for catching the first and most fish will be awarded at the conclusion of each derby.

The fishing derbies will be held as follows:
