Ridgewood NJ, Bergen County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad Unit responded to investigate a suspicious package found underneath a park bench during the rally. Protesters were leaving the park to begin marching when the package was discovered by a plain clothes police officer assigned to internal park security. A section of the park was subsequently cordoned off with yellow police line/caution tape until Bomb Squad Unit technicians arrived. Contents of the package were determined to be harmless following inspection by technicians (a pair of old shoes).
