The Bernards Township Police Traffic Safety and Services Division is comprised of three officers: a Lieutenant, and two patrol officers. The Division has the responsibility of ensuring the free flow of traffic through the Township; the safety of the public using the roads within the Township; and the prevention of accidents. This is accomplished by the enforcement of State/Municipal Motor Vehicle Law/Ordinances, educating the public, participating in AAA Holiday Safety Programs and providing information to local newspapers. To educate motorists, the Traffic Bureau uses two visual aids: two portable RADAR display unit and pedestrian safety signs. The portable RADAR display units are battery powered and are used throughout the Township. They advise oncoming traffic of its speed, alert drivers to slow down, and observe the posted speed limit.
