WALL TOWNSHIP — Dozens of concerned residents gathered in the South Wall Fire Department banquet hall on Wednesday, Oct. 26 for a town hall organized by the township’s police department.
The agenda of the evening focused primiarly on the next steps the department would take after a series of car thefts and burglaries occurring in the last few weeks. In attendance was Chief Sean O’Halloran, who took questions from the public and discussed the protocol needed to ensure the saftey of residents.
The department had several other speakers for the audience who covered topics other than the burgleries, including spams [both electronic and in-person], the increase in electric bicycles in the township and the Halloween curfew.
“It’s a great showing of how many people we had out here. We have 26,000 residents in Wall and we try and be as transparent and open through our social media, and with the press, as possible,” said Chief O’Halloran after the event. “That’s what so important about tonight. We got a lot of postive feedback, we know we’re not perfect, we know we make mistakes and are human like everybody else, that’s where we want to see how we can do better.”
