New Emergency Equipment

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. 

Safe Exchange Zone

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.
