New Jersey Attorney General Porrino announced the “Safe Stop NJ” program.  The goal of the program is to have every traffic stop to end safely for all involved by providing information for the general public about what to do, and what not to do, during a traffic stop, to ensure that all stops are safe and fair.  A link to the program can be found here http://www.safestopnj.com/

 

Attorney General’s Message

 

Our goal is for every traffic stop to end safely for all involved. To achieve this goal, we have taken various steps, all of which have been directed at law enforcement: All police officers in New Jersey must complete annual training on de-escalation techniques, cultural awareness and implicit bias through our CLEAR Institute; thousands of police officers now wear body-worn cameras; we have improved protocols for investigation of police-involved use of deadly force; and we have promoted innovative community policing through hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and awards. Our new “Safe Stop” initiative takes the next step by providing information for the general public about what to do, and what not to do, during a traffic stop, to ensure that all stops are safe and fair. Please help us make every stop a Safe Stop.

“Weather permitting, the Atlantic County Office of Mosquito Control plans to treat parts of Hammonton as part of its ongoing effort to control adult mosquitoes.  The area to be treated is bounded by Packard St., Fairview Ave., Thirteenth St., Grand St., Passmore Ave., Egg Harbor Rd. and Grape street.   No other Atlantic County communities are scheduled for spraying at this time.

 Spraying to reduce adult mosquitoes using ground application equipment will take place on Thursday evening, October 5, between 7:00pm and 9:00pm.  Ground spraying will be done using Scourge, the trade name for resmethrin, applied as an ultra-low volume aerosol.”

The EPA does not require relocating or taking special precautions during mosquito control spraying, people may choose to avoid or minimize exposure by:

  • Staying indoors during application to immediate area
  • Keeping windows shut, window fans and air conditioners off ( or set to circulate indoor air) during spraying
  • Keeping children’s toys indoors
  • Keeping pets indoors, as well as their food, water dishes and toys.
