Residential Safety Tips

Harding Township Police Chief Mark Giansanti and the Harding Township Committee want to alert residents of recent burglaries that have occurred in surrounding municipalities over the past few months.  It is always prudent to take basic safeguards and report any suspicious activity immediately to police.  (973-455-0500 - 0)

We are suggesting that residents:

  • Lock doors and windows, leave enough lights on to make your house appear occupied and activate your alarm when away.
  • Report suspicious behavior to HTPD, including motor vehicles and persons.
  • Keep an eye out for your neighbor's residence.
  • Call HTPD if you are going away so that we can place your residence on our watch list.
