They are amazing! Beyond amazing really. They have been there for my mother many times recently and always turn up fast, are so professional and compassionate, have all the required skills to respond to every situation and really are the best group of people anyone could hope for in a time of crisis. Without them, the outcome from a few reasons for callouts would have been very, very different. So thank you to them for all their hard work and dedication.

Agreed! Bittersweet in that sadly, I have had to call them, but thankfully, they always showed up, pronto, and provided services truly & timely needed. Sending support & appreciation vibes to our USRVAC🙏

One of the best

Our society needs to be smarter when voting in elections and always back the Blue! We appreciate all that you and other officers put on the line for us every day. Prayers are always with you. 🇺🇸🙏🏻

Praying for your safety and voting for change. 🇺🇸

Stay Safe!!! We back the Blue 🇺🇸🫡🙏🏻 Thank You for all that you do all of us!!! Praying for your safety 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

A sad statistic. Stay safe my brothers and sisters

Thank you for all that you do to protect our community. Sad but not surprised to read this with the level of violence we seeing. Stay safe.

Thank you for your protection and service to our community!

Thank you for your service 💙🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🏻 stay safe!

Very sad. We appreciate you!

Thank you all for your dedicationa and sacrifice for our community... you are all appreciated daily. 🖤💙🖤

Stay safe & we back you! 💙🇺🇸

We back the blue! 🙏🏻

Thank you to our USRPD💙

Thank you for all you do !

Our laws and Liberal ideas shoulder much of the blame. Reinstate bail, incarcerate for longer times, punish recidivists harshly and start treating the violent juveniles as adults. Our society will benefit hugely from these changes.

Let these statistics sink in when you vote during the next voting cycle - support the Blue 🙏💙 🇺🇸

You know who we can thank for this..... 🤬🤬🤬 We appreciate everyone in law enforcement and thank you for keeping us safe! They need to untie your hands and let you do your job! The criminals have become the victims! 🤬

In NY, DA letting illegal aliens plead out on their attack of officers.. 🤬

Sad news, I thank you for all you do 🙏🏻

Thanks for all you do everyday.! ⭐️

Last evening Operation Deep Blue held its annual banquet in preparation of their 2024 expedition.

Each year Operation Deep Blue plans and organizes "The Expedition To Honor Our Fallen." Over an eight day period, the Operation Deep Blue team use kayaks to paddle approximately 225 miles from Fort Mott State Park in Pennsville, NJ to Washington, DC. This September there will be thirty kayakers on the Operation Deep Blue team making their way to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington DC.

Their expedition raises awareness for law enforcement officers, other first responders and military service members who died in the line of duty, as well as to help raise funds to provide relief to their surviving family members.

The Upper Saddle River Police Department, Mayor Fardanesh, and Town Council had the pleasure of honoring USR resident, Dr. Robert Andtbacka with a Meritorious Service Award. On March 11, at approximately 2 PM, Dr. Andtbacka was instrumental in the rescue and extrication of an accident victim on the northeast side of town. Upon witnessing the accident, Dr. Andtbacka ran from his home, avoided downed high voltage power lines, and climbed through an enormous fallen tree that struck the victim’s vehicle. Dr. Andtbacka cared for the victim and remained by her side throughout the 35 minute extrication. Dr. Andtbacka’s selfless actions defined the epitome of both a “first responder” and a “neighbor.” Congratulations Dr. Andtbacka!

USR Alert: The Upper Saddle River Police is investigating two scams that occurred over the last 72 hours. These scams fit a common pattern involving the request for large quantities of cash or gift cards. The perpetrators of these crimes conducted ruses involving "a family member in trouble" or "impending legal action". The cash proceeds were picked up by suspected Uber drivers. Pictures of gift cards were sent to the perpetrators electronically via various messaging apps. Please remember the following; law enforcement agencies and government agencies will neither solicit bail payment over the phone nor will they request payment in the form of gift cards. Any residents with information regarding an attempted or successful scam is instructed to immediately call the Upper Saddle River Police Department. ... See MoreSee Less
