While we are extremely happy that the Birthday Drive By's have brought so much happiness to so many of our residents, unfortunately, we are going to have to start limiting them. For Birthday Drive By's, we are asking that the following parameters be adhered to: The Birthday boy or girl is 10 years old or younger, or 95 years old or older, and that we are given at least 3 days notice prior to the planned event. We need to give our Community Policing Unit time to make up the gift bags and for our Patrol Commanders to put out notice to our officers in a timely manner. We hope that you understand.
Members of the Scotch Plains and Fanwood Police Departments take time out of their busy day to interact with the students of the SPF BOE. This valuable program allows us to build a trusting relationship with the younger generation and let them see that police officers are people too.
The Scotch Plains PBA Local #87 Toy Drive has been going on for several years. Each year members of the Scotch Plains PBA collect new, unwrapped gifts prior to the holiday season so that they can be distributed to several less fortunate children in the area.
Members of the Scotch Plains PBA Local #87 are constantly doing things to assist members in the community. The picture above is the donation check for the 'Never Say Never' Foundation who were the beneficiaries of the 2019 Children's Charities Golf Outing.
