In order to ensure the safety of the Borough’s school children, Police Department personnel will be placing an added emphasis on monitoring the operation of motor vehicles on the roadways where local schools are located in order to enforce those parts of the New Jersey motor vehicle code that pertain to school zones and school busses.

In keeping with the safety of children, motorists are further reminded to use caution in the area of schools, even after the school day ends when children leave later due to extracurricular activities or participating in or attending school sporting events.

In addition to police officers that are seen handling various traffic related duties at schools, a complement of civilian school crossing guards work at specific heavy traffic intersections that are near the schools to assist children in walking safely to and from school each day.

Officers will also be available to greet students, faculty and staff during arrival and dismissal times as well as walking through schools during the school day.

The Roselle Police Department is committed to the safety of all during the school year.

Orlando also noted that all parents in an effort to keep children safe, review the following parking information:

  • There is NO PARKING on the same side of the street as the school. You cannot wait for your child at dismissal time in a No Parking area.
  • Parents are not to stop in the middle of the street to drop off /pick up their children.
  • Parents and children should not cross in the middle of the street; use the crossing guard.
  • Sidewalks are to be utilized when available. Children must not walk in the street.

Contact the Roselle Police Department at (908) 245-2000 if you have any questions.
