Community Involvement

As police officers for the Township, officers automatically become part of the community even if they live elsewhere.  Officers have spoken at summer camp programs, given bicycle and pedestrian safety presentations to grammar school children, and even represented the Township in the NJ Special Olympics Torch Run.  Many interactions go unnoticed, such as the patrol officer stopping to patronize a lemonade stand set up by a promising young entrepreneur on a hot summer day.

The West Caldwell Police Department maintains a "Community Policing" attitude and its members look forward to meeting you at one of our events!

We encourage residents and business owners to sign up for NIXLE alerts and SWIFT-911 alerts.  

NIXLE will be utilized by the Township to alert subscribers to routine, newsworthy information such as road closures or special events.

SWIFT-911 will be utilized to alert subscribers to emergency information.
