Township Administrator


At August’s Township Committee Meeting, Sergeant Giansanti urged residents to take a few simple precautions to help safeguard their homes:

  • Make your residence appear occupied when not at home.
  • Leave multiple lights on timers that go on and off at different times.
  • When away secure all doors and windows.
  • If you have an alarm, set it.
  • Advise your neighbors to retrieve your mail and newspapers.
  • If comfortable, allow family members and neighbors to park their cars in your driveway.
  • Advise HTPD to perform periodic house checks when away.
