CLARK, NJ - The Clark Police Department (CPD) recently launched a new Facebook page, located at www.facebook.com/ClarkPolice.  They plan to use this social media tool to communicate efficiently and quickly with the public they are pledged to serve and protect.   

"The CPD has been watching police agencies in neighboring towns put Facebook to good use,” said Sergeant Chris Lott. “CPD will use Facebook to share public safety information with residents.”  He explained that the page might be used to gain public assistance in identifying suspects unknown to the agency or to make the people of Clark aware of trends they are seeing in town.  

Lott said the department hopes that the new Facebook page will “help people see us as more approachable and as a community-service oriented department.”    He acknowledged that the new Acting Chief of Police Pedro Matos has been a steady proponent of the idea of using Facebook and is wholly supportive of the possibilities it holds for CPD.

Clark Residents are invited to visit and like the CPD Facebook page to stay connected at www.facebook.com/ClarkPolice.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

After Bruce Patrson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered. At the the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union County I conclude ...
