The Fort Lee Police Department, including the Honor Guard & Motorcycle units participated in the three 9/11 Memorial Services: BC Police Academy, BC Chief’s Association, and the Borough of Fort Lee.
The Fort Lee Police Department is issuing a warning to our local businesses and merchants regarding a possible telephone scam that targets local businesses.
The individuals involved are contacting local businesses and merchants. They are identifying themselves as employees for PSE&G. The caller informs the business that their payment for service is overdue and instructs them that they need to make payment via some type of money card. The caller then provides the merchant with a New Jersey telephone number to call back with the account information on a specific card once they complete the transaction.

Three officers from the Fort Lee Police Department, who collectively made over 100 arrests for drunken driving last year, received commendations for their efforts to take Drunk or Drugged Drivers off our streets from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) New Jersey on June 11. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that on average one person died every 51 minutes during 2012.
During the annual recognition ceremony held at Middlesex Community College, the non-profit organization recognized Police Officer Carlos Cabrera for a third straight year, Police Officer Tom Keelen for the second time, and Police Officer Richard Hernandez for the first time. Each officer received a plaque and a uniform citation bar for their proactive work combating drunk driving.
