Community Policing
A new approach for focusing our patrol officers’ time and efforts has been established as of February 2001 by Ex-Police Chief Anthony Jannicelli. Our patrol officers have each been assigned specific geographical areas of responsibility or “Community Policing Sectors”. Each officer has been assigned a section of the town, consisting of approximately 220 households. Officers assigned to these specific areas will be responsible for visiting new residents in order to obtain needed emergency information from them, as well as for providing information and answer any questions the new homeowners may have. These officers will also be responsible for serving warrants, follow-up on dog licenses, as well as becoming more familiar with their residents. The officer will be considered as a contact point or “liaison” for the resident and neighborhood. Sector officers will be utilized in identifying problems, as well as acting as an arbitrator in neighbor disputes. In addition to the above program for our patrolmen and residents, our Sergeants have also been assigned community policing business sectors. Similar to the patrol officers visiting each resident, our sergeants will visit the business owners. They will also act as a liaison to the business owner, in updating emergency information.  Each sergeant will be assigned approximately 30 businesses. Our Captain and Lieutenant have been assigned to implement and monitor monthly progress for each of the officers assigned. The Captain and Lieutenant  then report to the Chief of Police in their monthly reports.We have established a “voice mailbox” for each of our officers. Residents can leave messages for non-emergency problems with their sector officer. These officers will also be responsible for reporting any conditions needing attention in their sectors. This service to the community is in addition to their regular patrol responsibilities of the entire town. If the officer is off duty, any of our officers on duty will still respond to the resident’s needs, especially in an emergency. A specific listing and breakdown of the officers’ sector assignments, as well as telephone mailbox extensions is posted on the Woodcliff Lake Police Web site at www.wclpd.com.

Ex-Police Chief Anthony Jannicelli was proud to have the IACP Police Chief Magazine feature our program in their January 2003 addition.  As a result of this article, he had received many requests for information for our sector program.  Police Chiefs from around the country have expressed an interest in adopting our program for their agency. 

If you have any questions, you can contact Chief John Burns at jburns@wclpd.com or at 201-391-4977 x414

Thank you

Chief John Burns, Woodcliff Lake Police Department
