Crime Watch


The Elizabeth Township Police Department is asking the community to assist with keeping our community safe. Crime Watch is essentially a neighbor looking after other neighbors and calling 911 to report suspicious activity. You are the heartbeat of the Township. You know what is going on, who belongs and who does not. Crime watch members are the eyes and ears of the Police, and you can and will help stop crime.


Please call 911 immediately if you see or feel any suspicious activity in your neighborhood.
