Ridgewood NJ, the Ridgewood Police Department has been experiencing unprecedented difficulty in hiring crossing guards for this school year, similar to the problem all other businesses are currently facing. Due to this shortage, we have needed to reallocate staffing in order to prioritize posts to those where the students have the most interaction with vehicles, such as on heavily traveled roadways. We are continuing to work diligently on hiring more crossing guards and hope to rectify this situation as soon as possible with the goal of returning to normal operations within a few weeks. As always, the Ridgewood Police Department’s primary concern is the safety of all of our residents and visitors, especially our children.

“We live among-st idiots in this town. Why are people so stupid to publicly criticize the police on social media?? Don’t they realize that the police are reading their comments and remembering their names. Remember, the police have the means to find out everything about you. Where you live. What you drive. I have many friends who are cops. The one thing they remember are those who complain or even press charges against them. Some have gone so far as pulling over the complainers and giving them tickets for crossing the center line in the street or even tires touching the parking lines. A few have even waited outside a bar or restaurant to pull he/she over for DUI. Is it worth all the money you will spend, and your reputation for defending a kid who obviously has no respect for authority. The police are a tight brotherhood that stick together. These are the men and women we call when something goes wrong. Why would you jeopardize your safety and well being by complaining about something that you weren’t even involved in. Mind your business. It’s that simple. I commend the Ridgewood police department for keeping our streets safe. For the agitators out there remember, “revenge is a dish served cold.”

Dear Students and Colleagues:

I write today to advise that after considerable internal planning and review of state, local, and federal guidance and data, the Fall 2020 semester at Ramapo College will feature a combination of limited in-person and remotely delivered instruction as well as modified levels of on-campus activity, residency, and programming.

The Ramapo College Restart Plan (hereafter “the Plan”) has been meticulously developed by a Task Force, numerous subcommittees, and a group of resource personnel. In sum, 48 members of the College, inclusive of faculty, staff, and managers, participated in its development.  We have outlined our return to campus with a phased approach, which is aligned with the three-stage approach communicated by the State of New Jersey.
