Point Boro Police Department


Dear Friend and Neighbor,

In communities such as ours there are many people who live alone. The Borough of Point Pleasant cares about you and is concerned about your well being. We have developed a program that we call "OPERATION REASSURANCE". This letter is to introduce you to the program and offer you the opportunity to join something that many of your neighbors have found is geared to their safety and well being.

The requirement for acceptance to the program is broad, as our goal is to help as many people as possible. The purpose is to assist senior citizens, or people living under special circumstances that live alone. You will be required to call the Police Department every day between 8:00 am and 10:00 am. If your call is not received by 10:00 am we will call you. If there is no answer a police officer will be dispatched to your home to ensure your well being.

If a key is not made available to the police officer forced entry into your home may be required. The Point Pleasant Police Department or it's members will not be held liable for any damage incurred by the forced entry.

If you are interested in participating please print and fill out the application below and return it to Police Headquarters. You may also fax the application to 732-892-0310. If you have any questions please contact our "OPERATION REASSURANCE" coordinator at 732-892-0060.

Very truly yours,
Lawrence R. Williams
Chief of Police
