A Message From the Boonton Township Police Department

Back to School Safety Tips

The fall season typically marks a busy time of the year for the Boonton Township Police Department. Our agency is particularly active as we await for yet another school season to start at Rockaway Valley School as well as Mountain Lakes High School. The start of the school year at RVS means that the Boonton Township DARE program is once again underway. This program, which is offered to 5th and 7th grade students, gives children the tools and education they need to resist drugs, alcohol and violence. The Boonton Township DARE program has been a staple at RVS for over 25 years, and our officers pledge that they will continue to dedicate their efforts to this fantastic program and make every effort to ensure its continued success.

On a safety note, please remember to drive carefully now that school is back in session. Please be mindful that you may need to allot extra time for your morning commute due to an uptick in traffic near our school zone as well as the school bus pick-up schedules. As a friendly reminder, motorists are required to come to a complete stop whenever a school bus is stopped and is employing the use of its flashing signals. Especially during the start of the school year, some students may be new at bus stops and bus drivers may be learning new bus routes, so please be patient when you find yourself behind a school bus.

We would also like to remind our residents that as more parents have made the choice to drive their children to school over the past year, we have seen more traffic than ever in our school zones during the morning and afternoon hours. BTPD will be monitoring the situation closely along with officials from Rockaway Valley School, and we will be taking the necessary steps to ensure that everyone remains safe. For the parents who are utilizing the RVS pickup and drop-off locations, we remind you to please exercise caution and drive safely when navigating through the parking lot. As newer students and parents are still familiarizing themselves with pickup and dropoff procedures, it is vital that we all remain vigilant especially while driving on school property.

With those tips in mind, we hope that the rest of the fall season is safe, healthy and enjoyable for all of our residents here in Boonton Township. If we can ever be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact us, or stop by the department and see us. Our agency would be happy to provide you with a number of booklets and informational pamphlets which further discuss ways to keep you and your family safe. We are happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about our community. The Boonton Township Police Department is proud to serve the residents of this great community, and we are looking forward to a safe and successful remainder of 2021.
