Wawa’s on Highway 35 in Middletown held their Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony this morning. Wawa has the tradition that when they open a new location, they hold a “Heroes for Hoagies” contest. Middletown PD had a friendly competition against Olde Village Fire Department which consists of volunteer fire fighters. The teams competed to see who could make the most hoagies in three minutes and this close race was won by the Officers of MTPD. Each team received a $1000.00 donation to the charity of their choice and the lucky winner received the Hoagie Trophy, which is now proudly displayed at MTPD. Thank you so much for Wawa’s generosity and charitable donation and for being a part of our community, and to Officers Belmonte, Buhowski, Jennings, Menedez, and Reuter who represented the PD proudly. We would also like to thank the Township Committee members and everyone else who came out to support this local business.

MTPD wishes everyone celebrating Hanukkah light and peace.

Middletown Township Police Department (MTPD) Chief R. Craig Weber announced that the MTPD will once again be participating in the “National Take Back Initiative” in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) New Jersey Division, and other state and local law enforcement agencies. The program will occur on Saturday, October 28th from 10:00am until 2:00pm at the Middletown Township Police Headquarters, located at 1 Kings Highway.

Participants may dispose of medication(s) in the original container, or by removing the medication from the container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box. Individuals are encouraged to remove any identifying information from prescription labels that may be present. All solid dosage pharmaceutical products and liquids may be accepted. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container. Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazards posed by blood-borne pathogens.
DEA will collect v**e pens or other e-cigarette devices from individual consumers ONLY after the batteries are removed from the devices.

It is important to note that the DEA is not responsible for removing the batteries from the devices. If the battery cannot be removed, individual consumers can check with large electronic chain stores who may accept the v**e pen or e-cigarette device for proper disposal. Individual consumers may also contact their local Hazardous Materials Management Facility to determine if they accept these devices and for additional guidance regarding proper disposal.

“National Faith and Blue Weekend” is celebrated from October 6-9, 2023. Thank you to Pastor Porter and the Pilgrim Baptist Church for sponsoring this event and for continuing this initiative by bringing law enforcement officers and clergy together, including our own Police Chaplain, Rev. Dr. Dan Correa.
We are fortunate at MTPD to have many Chaplains from our local churches ready to provide support for our officers. Police Chaplains are a source of guidance, strength, and comfort to their communities and to police officers, who in their pledge to protect and serve, deal with crises and traumatic events daily in their line of duty.

K-9 Koda came to his last shift today. We would like to thank Koda for his 8 years of service to the Middletown Township Police Department. Koda had a dedicated career with over 312 deployments resulting in many arrests, narcotics seized, and suspects located. Koda served proudly with the Monmouth County Emergency Response Team and aided the New York/ New Jersey Fugitive Task Force (Camden Office) with the arrest of over 29 wanted fugitives.
Koda ensured the safety of his handler Sgt. Greenwood and the safety of all the officers each shift, making sure everyone went home. Koda was honored for his service alongside Sgt, Greenwood, his dog mom Mattie, and fellow K-9 handlers from MTPD, the Sheriff’s office and Holmdel. Koda celebrated with a peanut butter cake! Your presence will be greatly missed. Enjoy your retirement and time with your family.

Back-To-School Safety Tips for Drivers
• Reduce your speed, pay attention, and obey traffic laws in school zones and neighborhoods surrounding schools.
• Be ready to always stop.
• Children on bikes are often slow and unpredictable – slow down and allow at least 3 feet of passing distance between the bicycle and your vehicle.
• Wait patiently for children to complete their crossing before you proceed.
• Try to make eye contact with children who are waiting to cross the road.
• Do not load and unload children into vehicles across the street from the school.
• Don’t double park in the school zone – this blocks visibility for other children and vehicles.
• Never pass a vehicle that has stopped for pedestrians.? When traveling behind a bus, follow at a greater distance than you would when following another car – this will give you more time to stop once yellow lights begin to flash.
• Watch for bikes coming from behind parked cars or driveways.
• Do not block crosswalks when stopped – this forces pedestrian to go around you and puts them in the path of moving traffic.
• Watch for children arriving late for the bus – they may dart across the street without heeding traffic.
