Officer Scott Jones meets with the sixth grade class for thirty-five minutes weekly over twelve weeks teaching the D.A.R.E. program. During these classes, students learn how to resist drugs and violence. The students also learn about the dangers of drugs and the many ways to say no. Abuse of legal drugs such as alcohol, tobacco and prescription medications are discussed as well as why age limits and laws are important. The purpose of these classes is to spur discussion with parents in the home. By having parents reinforce the dangers associated with drug use and why resolving conflicts with violence is a dead end solution, it is our belief that students will model their behavior based on our teachings, life experiences and positive role models.

Essex Fells Police Foundation

Essex Fells Police Foundation

The Essex Fells Police Foundation is a charitable organization, created by concerned residents, which raises funds for the purpose of purchasing equipment and training for the Essex Fells Police Department.

These purchases enable our police officers to obtain equipment and training which the department would not be able to provide under its regular limited budget.

Halloween Safety Tips from the Essex Fells Police

Halloween is a fun time for many families.  However, it can be a dangerous time, also.  The Essex Fells Police would like to ask that motorist take extra precautions around dusk and early evening on Halloween (Friday, October 31st).  Children have a tendency to become very excitable during the trick or treat activities and may inadvertently get themselves into harm’s way in our neighborhoods.  The Essex Fells Police Department will continue our “no tolerance policy” dealing with criminal mischief.  The Police Department will have additional officers patrolling on Thursday and Friday evenings in marked and unmarked vehicles, motorcycle as well as bicycle patrols.
