Schools open tomorrow, Sept 6th for the Hillsdale Public Schools. Please respect your fellow parents and drive slowly and carefully while in the school zones.
Parents use designated drop off areas only. Don't double park and discharge your child onto the roadway. It is very dangerous to have children running between cars. Finally, avoid parking in near crosswalks and stop signs.
Hillsdale Police Officers will be in the areas of the schools during drop off and dismissal times to make it safer for everyone.
Have a great first day of school and a wonderful school year.

Recently, the Hillsdale Police Department acquired a used military “High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle” (HMMWV), or commonly referred to a HUMVEE.
The Hillsdale Police Department was able to acquire vehicle through the government’s “1033 Program” which was created to transfer excess military equipment to local law enforcement agencies at no cost to the municipalities. The "Law Enforcement Support Office" (LESO) administers the program and oversees the distribution of the equipment to local enforcement agencies.
The Hillsdale Police Department, maintains a "Safe Exchange Zone" at the Hillsdale Police Station. This zone is to help ensure that buyers and sellers of good have a safe location in which to perform their transactions. Currently the Hillsdale Police Department maintains two distinct locations for safe exchanges; the first area is the lobby of the Hillsdale Police Station located at 380 Hillsdale Ave Hillsdale, NJ. The second location is in the rear of the building and there is a sign that clearly indicates that it is a "Safe Exchange" area.
The Hillsdale Police Department will once again participate in the National Drug Take back day sponsored by the DEA. We will be collecting drugs at police headquarters from 10am-2pm on April 30th. We are not allowed to accept liquids or hypodermic syringes.
This year the Hillsdale Police Department will be conducting a Zero Tolerance Policy this year during “Mischief Night” and Halloween (October 30th and 31st). This policy is vital for the safety of our children and the protection of property. We are urging parents to take an active role in order to assist us in this endeavor.
