Hoboken Police introduces expanded pedestrian safety initiatives
To help improve pedestrian safety and responsible driving from motorists, the Hoboken Police Department, in partnership with the City of Hoboken, has created an email to address to send complaints directly to the Hoboken Police Traffic Bureau. For any traffic, moving violation concerns, or any other pedestrian safety complaint occurring in the City of Hoboken, residents should send any video, picture, complaints, questions and feedback to a newly created email address: traffic@hobokenpd.org. “We have created this new email address so that we can formally receive all complaints and have our Traffic Bureau Supervisors assess them and come up with strategies and initiatives to properly address them,” said Police Chief Ken Ferrante. In addition, the Hoboken Police Department Traffic Bureau has initiated several additional traffic enforcement initiatives, including pedestrian decoy operations, to address pedestrian safety complaints reported to HPD. During pedestrian decoy operations, officers dressed in civilian clothes attempt to cross the street in marked crosswalks. Drivers who do not stop for the officers in the crosswalk, as required by law, may receive a violation for failing to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk. During the first operation, officers issued 10 violations at 15th Street and 15 violations at Newark Street, two locations with a high level of resident complaints. “We must always prioritize the safety of our families and children as they utilize our City streets,” said Mayor Ravi Bhalla. “This initiative represents a critical step forward in increasing pedestrian safety in Hoboken, and I thank Chief Ferrante and the Hoboken Police Department for making it a high priority. I look forward to working with HPD and our community to introduce additional safety initiatives in 2019 to prevent any and all traffic-related injuries or fatalities.” This announcement is the first of several major street safety initiatives the City of Hoboken will introduce to the public, with more details to be announced next month. Note the email provided is not monitored 24/7, and all immediate requests for service should be made by calling 201-420-2100 and 911 for emergencies. Posted on Nixle by the City of Hoboken.
