New Providence Police Department

On behalf of the New Providence Police Department, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.

Our Police Department is accredited by the Association of New Jersey Police Chief’s and is committed to Community Policing.  Our continued efforts include a partnership with the community to reduce crime, solve problems, and lend a helping hand to the citizens we vow to serve and protect.

The officers of our agency participate in many community-oriented programs, such as D.A.R.E., Senior Citizen Liaison Program, and Police and Teens Together. We are a police department that recognizes the need to establish positive relationships with the various entities in our community. It’s great to see our officers’ enthusiasm, involvement and encouragement of other programs, such as the Oakwood Park Fishing Derby, P.B.A. Blood Drive, P.B.A. Coat Drive, and our annual Toy Drive.

I would like to extend my thanks to those volunteers who continually support our department, namely the New Providence Fire Department and Rescue Squad, as well as the Northern Union County Domestic Violence Civilian Response Team. I would also like to thank our School Crossing Guards for keeping our children safe throughout the school year and our Public Works Department for their supporting efforts.

Our Police Department has developed an ongoing, strong working relationship with our various School Administrators in our effort to keep our educational environment safe and desirable.

New Providence is an exceptional community and the efforts of our police officers, civilian support staff, volunteers, citizens, and the steadfast public safety support from the Mayor and Council have made a positive impact on the quality of life in the community. We will continue to meet the needs of our citizens and do it with a professional and dedicated staff.

If we can ever be of assistance to anyone, please do not hesitate to call upon us.

Thank you,
Chief Theresa A. Gazaway
