ATTEMPTED RESIDENTIAL BURGLARY
On Monday August 30th at approximately 1:00 PM a resident of Rochelle Avenue reported a suspicious vehicle. Responding police officers spoke with the homeowner and discovered that the suspicious vehicle was actually a botched burglary attempt. The resident heard his interior garage door begin to open. He walked to the garage to investigate and found a black male party standing in his garage. The resident questioned the male, described as a black male wearing shorts and a t-shirt, with a large build and a shaved head. The male stated that he was looking for landscaping work and then abruptly fled in a Grey 2007 Nissan with California license plate 5XRL305. The vehicle was additionally reported to have damage to the rear. It is believed that this same person attempted to burglarize a home in Washington Township earlier in the day. Police urge residents to be on the lookout for this vehicle, and report this or any other suspicious vehicles and/or individuals. Anyone with information can contact the Rochelle Park Police Department at 201-843-1515.

Sponsored by the Foundation at Bergen Regional Medical Center
Almost 80 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur at home and are witnessed by a family member. However, only 6.4 percent of sudden cardiac arrest victims survive because the vast majority of those witnessing the arrest are people who do not know how to perform CPR. If more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. To help county residents, Bergen Regional Medical Center is hosting a free public CPR class for county residents on Wednesday, September 15 from 6:30 p.m – 7:30 pm. Pre-registration is required, and participants can call 201.225.7141 to sign up.

POLICE CHIEFS' MESSAGE
Welcome back everyone. Hope you all had a great summer vacation. It sure was "Hot" enough! As we all know, once school starts there will be children walking, bicycling, and busing to school. I urge students to be especially careful when crossing the streets. I have personally witnessed children talking to their friends or on a cell phone, and obviously not watching for traffic. Please do not talk on the phone while crossing streets, it is a very unsafe and dangerous practice. Parents and other drivers, please be aware that once the school year begins children will be present between 7:30 and 8:30 am, and 2:30 to 3:30 pm. Although we should always be alert, it is especially important during the school year. I wish everyone a happy and safe school year.
Chief Richard Zavinsky
