Morris County Sheriff’s Office issues safety message for park visitors

MORRIS COUNTY, NJ – The Morris County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division wants to reassure everyone enjoying the Morris County recreational facilities that their enjoyment of the parks system and their safety are of paramount importance.

The officers operate regular and routine patrols in and around all aspects of the 20,000 + acres of Morris County Park Commission properties and its 38 facilities.

“Safety and security technologies are at our disposal and are deployed strategically.  We partner with all municipalities in providing a police presence and incident response as needed,” the sheriff’s office said.

“We also want to reassure the public that last week’s incident on the Traction Line Recreation Trail in Morristown is not a common occurrence in county recreational areas, and the attack concluded with two arrests being made swiftly with exemplary and solid police work. Patrols have since been increased,” the sheriff’s office said.

Should an emergent matter need immediate attention in a county park, dial 9-1-1 or call the dispatch center at 973-285-2900 and report your location, explain your emergency and request an officer to respond.

The sheriff’s office reminds visitors to report all suspicious activity in the county parks to the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division and be vigilant.

“Remember, your safety is important to the Morris County Sheriff’s Office,” authorities said.
