Bringing about better rapport between the public and police is the focus of a program set for September 28 at the First Baptist Church in Madison, which is co-sponsored by the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, NOBLE (National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives) Northern New Jersey Chapter, the Morris County Chiefs of Police Association, the Madison Borough Police Department and the church itself.

The 7 p.m. program – “The Law & Your Community” -- will concentrate on “proper procedures when interacting with law enforcement,” New Jersey law and police internal affairs reporting procedures.

Among the topics to be explored will be how to ensure safe and positive interaction with police during a motor vehicle stop. Attendees will also learn procedures for internal affairs reporting.

Prosecutor Knapp stated: “We look forward to meeting with community members for this presentation by Detective Kim Nelson Edward of the Montclair Police Department on behalf of NOBLE. Programs such as this serve to enhance community and police cooperation.”

The church is located at 36 Cook Avenue, Madison. For information on the program, contact Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Sergeant Keisha Higgs at (973) 285-6268 or khiggs@co.morris.nj.us.
