Dear Monroe Township Residents,

Please be advised that Governor Phil Murphy declared a State of Emergency effective at 5:00pm on Tuesday January 9th, 2024 in anticipation of the severe storms which could cause hazardous weather conditions including heavy rain, high winds, downed trees / power lines, power outages and flooding! This storm is expected to arrive in our area tomorrow afternoon and continue into Wednesday morning.

Monroe Township Office of Emergency Management is closely monitoring this storm and Township Department of Public Works & Utility Department have been working hard all day today in preparation for this storm.

Please avoid any unnecessary travel and report all power outages directly to JCP&L at 1-888-LIGHTSS

In case of any emergency, please dial 911!

Safety Tips:

- Make sure that your flashlights and cell phones are charged in case of a power outage.
- Do not use your gas stove to heat your home!
- Always assume that all downed power lines are live!
- If you come across a flooded roadway, please don't drive through it. Turn around and report it to the police department.
- Secure all outdoor furniture, garbage cans & lawn decorations by tying them down or bring them inside.

Please see the following statement from Chief Griffin Banos.

During the early morning hours on January 6th, 2024, Officer Stanley Ramnaidu was conducting a quality-of-life neighborhood check in the area of Linwood Estates. Officer Ramnaidu was alerted to a vehicle backing from a driveway, which he followed out of the neighborhood. After observing a motor vehicle violation, Officer Ramnaidu initiated a motor vehicle stop on Forsgate Drive. As Officer Ramnaidu began exiting his patrol car, the involved vehicle fled the traffic stop. Officer Ramnaidu attempted to close the distance with the involved vehicle, but determined a vehicle pursuit was not warranted in accordance with NJ Attorney General Guidelines. These guidelines empower an officer to make the determination not to pursue if there is an increased danger to the public. The vehicle was last seen entering the New Jersey Turnpike.

As the investigation continued, it was learned that the involved vehicle from the attempted traffic stop had been stolen from a residence in town, just moments before it was observed by Officer Ramnaidu. Through a review of additional surveillance footage, the suspects were seen entering an unlocked vehicle which gave them access to the residence via a garage door remote. The suspects entered the residence and located the key fob to the vehicle, which enabled them to steal the vehicle.

The investigation is ongoing at this time. We are grateful that no one was injured during this incident, however we cannot stress the importance of keeping your vehicles and homes secure at all times. Our officers will continue to work hard to combat these individuals who are targeting communities throughout the state, however the simple act of locking your car doors will go a long way to deter these criminal actors. Please report all suspicious activity by dialing 911.

Please see the following statement from Acting Chief Griffin Banos:

On December 17th, 2023, a representative from Congregation Etz Chaim received a threat via email from an unknown individual who claimed to have placed several explosives inside the Jewish Center located at 11 Cornell Ave. in Monroe Township. Monroe Township Police Officers responded to the location to secure the building. A Police K9 explosives detection team responded, and after conducting a sweep of the property, did not locate any explosives. The property was deemed safe and turned back over to the property management.

Over the past several days there have been several similar threats reported across the country, however it is unclear at this time if the incident reported in Monroe Township is related. The Monroe Township Police Department takes all threats seriously and although no explosives were located, we will continue to work with our law enforcement partners with the shared goal of protecting our communities.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Monroe Township Police Department at 732-521-0222.

Our 2023 Holiday Toy Drive was the biggest one yet!

Hospital staff ensured that these toys will help not only ease the burden on the families who have to spend the holidays in the hospital with their child, but will also provide a little joy to the children and families who spend time at the hospital throughout the year. This success would not have been possible without the help of our amazing community and our dedicated police officers who love nothing more to put a smile a child’s face.

Please see the following statement from Acting Chief Griffin Banos.

On the morning of December 8, 2023, the Monroe Police Communications Center as well as on duty patrol units received an alert from one of our Flock Safety stationary license plate readers that a stolen vehicle had entered the township. Officers Nicholas Lafata and Robert Seiden were able to locate the suspect vehicle and attempted to stop it, however the driver of the suspect vehicle began eluding the officers. In accordance with New Jersey Attorney General Guidelines, a vehicle pursuit was authorized. The officers maintained contact with the suspect vehicle as the vehicle entered both Manalapan and Englishtown. The driver of the suspect vehicle abandoned the vehicle in Englishtown, where the officers continued to pursue the suspect on foot. Officers from the Englishtown Police Department assisted in setting up a permitter to contain the suspect, while a K9 unit from the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to assist.

The suspect emerged from where he was hiding and after another brief foot pursuit, the suspect was apprehended without incident. It was learned that the vehicle was stolen out of Old Bridge Township earlier the same day. Detectives from the Old Bridge Township Police Department responded to the scene to assist.

Since the implementation of the Flock Safety stationary license plate reader system in September of 2023, alerts received from the devices directly lead to the arrest of five separate criminal suspects. Additionally, alerts received from the Flock Safety stationary license plate reader system continue to assist detectives in several other ongoing criminal investigations. Patrol officers were able to utilize the alerts received from the system to deter several suspect vehicles that had entered the township. As a result, Mayor Dalina has implemented a plan to double the amount of Flock Safety stationary license plate readers throughout the township in his continued efforts to combat crime and provide the Monroe Township Police Department with the tools they need to maintain the highest level of service to the citizens of Monroe Township.

All suspects should be considered innocent until proven guilty in court.

The New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association has partnered with Walmart and the What’s My Name Foundation to print and distribute signage promoting ride share safety.

The Foundation was created following the March 2019 death of Samantha Josephson, a Robbinsville teen kidnapped and killed by a fake Uber driver in 2019.

Monroe PBA State Delegate Wesley Panckeri visited several locations in town where ride share services are frequently used to distribute signs and speak to business owners about the campaign.

Remember S.A.M.I.—Stop, Ask, Match, Inform, before entering vehicles.
