No Place for bigotry and hate in Teaneck
There is NO PLACE FOR BIGOTRY AND HATE IN TEANECK, or anywhere else in our society. The Township remains committed to making Teaneck a safe community. Although the tragedy in Minneapolis, Minnesota occurred hundreds of miles away, the impact is felt all over the nation and world, especially in the African America community. As a previous member of the law enforcement community, I know that those in this profession, especially our brave men and women at the Teaneck Police Department, work earnestly to serve our community with fairness and sincerity. However, we cannot permit or accept those who stain the profession and promote distrust amongst our communities. This type of conduct will not be tolerated.
The Township of Teaneck will continue to work with our partner stakeholders to ensure that we are policing with fairness, transparency, and dignity.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with the family of George Floyd and the citizens of Minnesota during this difficult time.
