ROXBURY, NJ - On Nov. 20, 2019, Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Supervisor Spence Osaigbovo joined Conor Devine, Criminology teacher, and other Roxbury High School officials to host the “Safe Stop” educational program. The program was provided for students at all grade levels at the school concerning contact with law enforcement officers.

“Safe Stop” is a program sponsored by the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE), which aims to ensure that every traffic stop in New Jersey ends safely for all involved parties. The presentation educated the students on what to do and what not to do during a traffic stop. The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office has partnered with NOBLE presenting programs and working with the community to develop strong relationships with local law enforcement.

Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp stated: “This program provides the Morris County community with the information they need to ensure encounters with local law enforcement are safe for all parties involved.  We will continue to hold community outreach programs to ensure members of the public are provided with the necessary information when dealing with police officers.”
