I receive calls from solicitors requesting donations for various police related associations. Are these legitimate? Should I donate to these solicitors?

The Marlboro Police Department does not solicit over the telephone. The Police Department has two unions PBA Local #196 and FOP Lodge #15. The only solicitation done from the Police Department or PBA Local 196 is through the mail, usually once annually. Calls from all other "law enforcement" organizations are done by telemarketing firms. These solicitations, DO NOT benefit the Marlboro Police Department or PBA Local 196 in any way. These telemarketers are not Police Officers and use high pressure tactics to get you to participate.

We urge you to use extreme caution should you decide to contribute to these agencies. The only organization making money from these solicitations is the telemarketing firm. If you decide to contribute to any of these organizations, always ask for the name, address and telephone number so that you may call back after careful consideration. Most of them will not give out this information. You may also ask for financial statements and/or budget information prior to making your decision. If you have any questions please direct them to the Police Department.


Can I leave my vehicle parked in the street overnight if snow is predicted for the nighttime?

Parking in the roadway is prohibited by township ordinance during any type of snowfall, so that the proper snow clean up crews can plow the streets and roadways. Please make sure every effort is taken to keep all vehicles off the roadways during times of inclement weather.


Who do I call to report problems with neighbors regarding property and/or zoning disputes?

Any civil disputes of this nature should be referred to the Zoning or Engineering Departments (732) 536-0200. The Police Department does not get involved in these types of civil matters.


Does the Police Department concentrate on certain roadways where speeding vehicles are a problem?

Yes. The Police Department's Traffic Division handles these complaints and problem areas. Police units are assigned to enforcement details in areas where traffic problems have been determined to exist. If you have a specific complaint, please refer it to the Traffic/Safety unit at 732-536-0304


Is the use of headlights required when it is raining?

Yes. If you are using your wipers to clear precipitation from your windshield, you must have your headlights on.
