Weekend Update

Dear Resident,

Several years ago I began the ‘See Something. Say Something. We will Do Something.’ Initiative to address school shootings across the country and to increase engagement between members of our community and police.  Today, I am announcing an expansion of that initiative to include auto thefts that have occurred in Marlboro and other suburban communities.  Please keep an eye out for emails, flyers and social media posts.

Please continue locking your vehicles, keeping valuables out of sight, and removing the key fob. If you are not receiving texts from the Police SWIFT 911 portal please visit    and review the “Keeping Marlboro Safe” letter (linked HERE). I ask that you share this this message with your neighbors.  Together as a community we can help fight crime.
