Child Safety Seat Technicians

The Police Department has two officers trained in the inspection and proper installation of child safety seats. Cpl. Butler (sjbutler@mantuatownship.com, ext. 1546) and Ptl. Adam Hasselman (ahasselman@mantuatownship.com, ext. 1550) are available to anyone, township resident or not, who has a question or requests assistance on the proper installation of a child safety seat. The officers can be reached through the Police Department non-emergency number, 856-468-1920.  Keep in mind that the average appointment time is 30-45 minutes for a proper installation and demonstration.  The goal is to teach you how properly install seats for future reference, not just to install the seat for you.  

We will be conducting child safety seat installations beginning this month on Saturday 2/28/15 from 10am to 2pm at the Sewell Firehouse, 155 East Union Ave., Sewell, NJ.  After that, they will be the 2nd Saturday of every month with locations to be determined depending on the weather or special events.  The Mantua Fire Department has graciously offered their facility for the upcoming event to allow for families to wait in their large meeting room until their vehicle can be pulled into a warm bay and the installation completed.  We are also hoping to plan installation events coupled with the fire company at shopping centers in the warmer months to promote public safety awareness.  Please join us!

Nixle

In an effort to better communicate with the residents of Mantua Township, the Police Department has started using a communications system that allows residents to receive information ranging from critical alerts to community news. The system is called Nixle, and it allows residents to decide how they receive this information – by text, email, over the internet, or by mobile application. It enables the us to provide timely information to local residents so that they can better react to occurrences such as severe weather warnings, evacuation orders, school alerts, and other critical information. In addition, we can also relay other community related information such as police blotters, crime prevention tips, traffic closures, community updates, and much more. Please visit www.nixle.com for more details, or use the widget below to sign up. It is a free service.

 

 

Snow Ordinance

The Mantua Township Police Department would like to remind all residents that as per L.O. 143-22 there is no parking on ANY  Township Street during snow emergencies, or any snowstorm in which snow removal equipment is in use. We ask that all vehicles, portable basketball nets, boats and RV’s be removed from all highways, streets and cul-de-sacs to prevent damage and allow our Public Works Department and other government agencies to effectively plow and clear all highways, streets and cul-de-sacs within the Township safely and timely. Please keep your vehicles clear of the road until the snow has stopped, AND plows have cleared your street. Also, L.O. 350-28 prohibits the depositing of snow on any roadway within the Township either by shovel, snow blower, plow or any other means from any driveway, sidewalk or other private property onto any street within the Township.

 To ensure the safety and welfare of all residents, and to assist in the prompt clearing of snow from the roadways, the Mantua Police Department asks that all residents be mindful of these ordinances to assist in the prompt, safe and effective removal of snow from all Township Roadways.
