An important notice from the Kearny Police Dept. Traffic Bureau

The Kearny Police Department Traffic Bureau would like to remind the residents of Kearny that public schools will re-open Thursday September 4, 2014.

We ask that parents, guardians and the motoring public obey the traffic laws around all schools. The safety of our school children is paramount.

There will be officers assigned to school areas for the enforcement of traffic laws and violators will be summonsed. In particular, the following traffic violations; double parking, parked in prohibited areas, blocking crosswalks, blocking school bus stops, dropping off children in the middle of the street, speeding, will be aggressively enforced by officers on foot, bicycle, and radio cars. 

We also ask that parents and or guardians reinforce with their children the use of intersections controlled with a crossing guard and or safety patrol boys and girls.
