The Glassboro Police Department says they have received several calls from residents reporting they received emails that appear to come from the Police Department stating the recipient owes fines for speeding infractions.
The recipient is then asked to click on a link to pay the fine.
Glassboro Police say the emails did not come from them and are reminding residents that no court or police department would notify someone to pay fines through this method.
As a general warning, never click on links requesting money unless you have initiated the request with the company or agency.Read More
Police believe that the woman’s friends took pictures of her posing with the statue and that those photos may have been shared on social media.
“The pedestal is several feet high. We don’t want people climbing it and possibly damaging it – even if little damage occurred here,” officials explained.
They cite previous vandalism done to a nearby memorial wall as one of their reasons for wanting to identify this woman.Read More

“I say it's getting better. More and more people are out today," said Virginia Johnson, of Glassboro. "We enjoy it. It’s something that we always did."
Johnson has attended the parade nearly every year going back to when she was a little girl marching in the parade.
Now at 93 years old, the mother of 11 celebrates today for a different reason than when she was young. She has three sons that fought in Vietnam and one, Richard, who lost his life 50 years ago in battle.
“I grew up here and they’re all close friends [and] school mates. We’ve seen them go off to war and some of them didn’t come back," said Johnson. "When you see your own son go over and you go through that [it's hard] ... but I’m thankful the other two came home."Read More

They depend heavily on our partners and volunteers throughout the year to offer free workshops and programming to the community.

This year they presented the Community Partnership award to Allen Jordan, Community Service Officer of the Glassboro Police Department, for his outstanding dedication to the Mosaic Family Success Center. "We feel that it is very important for the community to have a positive relationship with the local police department and Al Jordan does a phenomenal job at facilitating this. - said Gina Hoffman, Family Success Center. Whenever we need extra help for an event, Al is readily available to coordinate with us." Some of the recent events the Police Department helped with were Bike Safety, "Stranger Danger" and a K9 Demo. Al also arranged for the police department to help with Glassboro's Community Day. It's obvious that Al truly cares about our community because we regularly see him at local events.
