Police Department Performance
Quadrant You Live In Age Years Living in Verona Comments
North East 30 to 45 1 to 5 There is too many speeding cars on my block and I have never seen anyone pulled over.
North East 30 to 45 6 to 10 More visible police presence, more patrols at night, more police on the street vs. in the office. ENFORCE THE SPEED LIMIT!
North East 30 to 45 6 to 10 Speed enforcement should take place on side streets as well as on the main roads.
North East 30 to 45 Over 10 Joe B, McSeventy and a few others are GREAT!!! I think they really care about what happens in this town.. I can't speak for the others
North East 30 to 45 Over 10 we recently had an occasion where the police department responded in an "above & beyond" way when we had suspicious activity at our home while we were away on vacation
North East 46 to 60 Over 10 I fell they do a good job.
North East 46 to 60 Over 10 We have a very professional and responsive police department.
North East Over 60 Over 10 The current crisis with a "Police Chief" vs a "Public Safety Director" who is beholden to the Mayor and Council smacks of cronyism and inhibits the work of any acting Police Department. When one of the Councilman's son is a member of the Police Dept it is easy to see why he would want to have the head of the Dept under his thumb.
North West Unanswered Over 10 Verona needs a more professional acting police dept, who are fair and impartial to all. They should be more community friendly and helpful.
North West 30 to 45 Over 10 Very satisified with the Police Department but they need a uniformed Chief to over see them, not a civilian Public Safety Director.
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 very cocky and unprofessional; if you know somebody, you get off
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 Many of the policemen in town are rude and not community friendly,
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 When my home was robbed in broad daylight they caught no one. From the local newspapers it seems our police spend an inordinate amount of time looking for expired vehicle registration stickers.
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 Always very courteous, on top of everything and respond quickly.
North West 46 to 60 Over 10 Over the past year the town has hired a couple of new police officers. There are many reports these new officers are harassing many of the town's teenagers and younger drivers in this town. The Mayor has issued directives that the police department become a stronger source of income for the the town's and in the last year the VPD has earned a reputation similiar to the very poor performance and over-reacting reputation of the Cedar Grove Police. AND there SHOULD BE A POLICE CHIEF running the Verona Police Department.
South East 30 to 45 Over 10 Too many chiefs ...put Huber in charge and get more cops on the roads
South East 30 to 45 Over 10 these guys are great. i know a few from living in town and they all seem competent, caring individuals. i have always been happy with the police.
South East 46 to 60 Over 10 Police visibility is high; response is within 2-3 minutes for calls which I have place from the residence or my car. couldn't ask for better; personnel respond professionally and emphathetically.
South West 30 to 45 6 to 10 I would like to see the police (visably) enforce speeding. There appears to be less enforcement especially along Bloomfield Ave, Lakeside and various cut thru streets.
South West 30 to 45 6 to 10 I feel they are ineffective in dealing with speeding on local streets.
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 If we had a Chief it would be more effective.
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 More speeding enforcement is necessary! I like the mobile speed signs - more would be nice. One has been installed on Hillside Avenue for a week now, but it is still not operational. What is the holdup? What a waste of a valuable asset!
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 I think that the police let too much in the way of traffic violations go ignored. I also think that the police might be a deterent to the fighting at the middle school...when you have a boy who is in fights several times a year and he has hurt someone badly isn't it time for the police to get involved? Are we waiting for him to put someone in the hospital?
South West 30 to 45 Over 10 they need a chief and they need to crack down on speeding
South West 46 to 60 Over 10 Whenever my burglar alarm has gone off, the police responded in seconds, not minutes. Considering how under-staffed they are, I think they do a great job.
