BOONTON TOWNSHIP POLICE CONCLUDE DWI SAFE DRIVING INITIATIVE

During the month of December, 2018 the New Jersey Department of Highway Traffic Safety issued grant funding to the Boonton Township Police for their annual holiday “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” safe driving campaign. During these safe driving crackdown the state requests that departments conduct increased enforcement activity in an effort to curb drunk driving as well as other hazardous driving behaviors.

In your travels you may have noticed an increased police presence on the streets of Boonton Township last month. This is because the state grant money allowed the Boonton Township Police Department to add 110 man hours of additional road patrol during the dates of December 7th, 2018 through January 1st, 2019. Over this time our officers conducted an additional 174 motor vehicle stops. Throughout the grant period the Boonton Township Police Department made numerous criminal arrests including 3 arrests for drunk driving, 3 arrests for controlled dangerous substances, 2 fugitives were apprehended with active criminal warrants, as well as several other criminal arrests. In addition there were 63 summons issued for various moving and equipment violations. This activity was in addition to the police work which this department conducts each and every month of the year while helping to keep the residents of Boonton Township safe.
