Important Press Release from the Little
Silver Police Department
On Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 9:14 pm, the Little Silver Police Department received numerous reports of a suspicious social media photo of what appeared to be a firearm with a caption “Stay Tuned”. This post was not directed to any individual or institution, however a screenshot of the post was circulated through students of Red Bank Regional High School.

This post was immediately and thoroughly investigated by Little Silver and Red Bank Police Detectives, as well as the School Resource Officer and found to have originated from a student of Red Bank Regional High School. RBR School administrators were notified of these findings. Police Officers located the subject who had made this posting and after interviews there was no evidence to support a threat of danger to the public or the school. The firearm depicted in the social media post was seized by police and was found not to be an actual firearm, but an air-soft gun which could reasonably be mistaken as real. The subject who posted the photo was arrested at approximately 11:00 pm and charged with NJSA 2C:33-3 (Creating False Public Alarm) and released on a summons pending a court appearance.

This matter was also referred to Red Bank Regional High School Administration and they stated “The status of the student has not been determined; however, the student is not in school today. The Red Bank Regional Board of Education does not tolerate threats of any kind and appropriate action will be taken to maintain a safe school environment. We realize that in our current social environment, events such as this can be unsettling. As always, please remember that members of our guidance department and the Source are available to provide support.”

 Recycling pickup for Zone 1 will begin on Wednesday January 2nd and will occur every other Wednesday after that.  Zone 2 recycling pick up will begin January 9th and will occur every other Wednesday after that. 

Please refer to the new brush pick up schedule attached as this is where the biggest change will occur.  In general residents in Zone 1 will be permitted to place brush to the curb beginning the 1st full week of each month thru the 2nd Wednesday of the month, and residents in Zone 2 will be permitted to place brush to the curb beginning the 3rd full week of the month thru the 4th Wednesday of each month.

Plastic bags of any type are no longer allowed in with recycling materials.   This applies to both curbside pickup and drop off at the Public Works yard.  Recycling materials are to be placed loose in all recycling containers or dumpsters.  Plastic bags cause delays and jams of the sorting machines during processing.  If plastic bags are found in any recycling load taken to the County site for disposal,  the entire recycling load will be rejected at significant cost to the Borough.

If plastic bags continue to appear in the dumpsters at the Public Works yard the Borough may be forced to close the recycling area Monday thru Friday, leaving only Saturday hours available, along with your regularly scheduled curbside pickup.

Everyone’s cooperation is sincerely appreciated.

If you have any questions please call Borough Hall at 732-842-2400.

Should you have any questions please call Boro Hall at 732-842-2400

Phone Scam Warning (pdf)
The Little Silver Police Department has received numerous complaints regarding an aggressive and sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, which has been making the rounds throughout the country. Callers claim to be employees of the IRS, but are not. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling.
Do not give any information to unsolicited phone callers at any time. Please click below for more information.
