Glen Rock NJ, The Glen Rock Police Department has received a rising number of complaints concerning unpleasant social media exchanges. Law enforcement generally cannot become involved with social media disputes unless:

•You’ve received or been named in direct threats of violence (ie: threats against life, limb and property and made in a manner that suggest a time, place, or location that would make a reasonable person believe a threat may be carried out).
•An online abuser has published nonconsensual, sexually explicit images of you.
•A user posts child-pornography.
•You’ve been stalked via electronic communication.
While New Jersey does have a harassment statue in the code of criminal justice – because of the first amendment – prosecution under this statue is limited when it is applied to expression, rather than conduct or acts. Matters concerning perceived liable or slander are civil matters for which redress may be available by filing a lawsuit, not a criminal complaint.
