Crime Prevention

biteThe Northfield Township Police Department takes a proactive approach in preventing crime. We believe that communication is the first step in maintaining a safe nurturing community. With this web page we are offering tips to assist all members of our community in keeping themselves and their property safe and secure. Members of our community include both our residents and those employed within our townships' jurisdiction.


As people enter our community we take pride in providing these members and their families with a sense of ease and comfort. Yet, this comfort can only be enhanced with the assistance of individuals following simple safety rules.

Through the joint effort of Neighborhood Watch Groups we will continue to keep our community a desirable place to live and work. In addition, the Crime Prevention Unit offers programs to meet individual organization needs, offers Operation Identification (loaning engravers to the public), Security Surveys and has videos and brochures to keep the community reminded of the simple things they can do to protect themselves, their families and their property.
