The Sayreville Police Department is dedicated to preserving the safety of our residents. A critical part of this mission is to ensure the safety of residents of our Borough who have special needs. To achieve this goal we are in the process of collecting information that would be helpful if one of our residents with developmental disabilities or persons afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease becomes lost or is unable to provide responding police with information that will allow us to contact their family in an emergency. It is our hope that you will choose to participate in this voluntary program.
What we hope to achieve in this program is the collection of emergency contact information and a digital photo that will be stored in our computer system. In the event of an emergency when time is critical this will enable the Police Department to have immediate access to emergency information that will allow us to contact parents, guardians, or other persons designated by you in the quickest possible way. Participation in this program will in no way create a “police record”. The data collected will be used by the Sayreville Police Department to respond properly and efficiently to an emergency involving a person with developmental or cognitive disabilities.
If you would like to participate in this program please fill out the data collection form on this website and follow the instructions to submit a digital photo of the person you are registering.
Thank you for considering this program. We feel it is a major step toward ensuring that all of our residents, especially the most vulnerable, receive the highest caliber of police assistance in an emergency.
