Observer Highway traffic detail
Did they cancel the Traffic Cops on Observer?
Several residents and Hoboken411 readers emailed in wondering what the deal was with the early morning Observer Highway traffic post. They were worried that the detail may have been discontinued – and how much they appreciated the assistance the HPD provided to maintain order at one of the more hectic morning rush hour hot spots.
Well, there’s nothing to worry about – the traffic detail is still in effect.
Hoboken PD said that over the past few weeks, there have been a handful of instances where the officers assigned downtown had to be pulled to handle higher priority jobs elsewhere in the city (such as a few car accidents, and the uptown bridges and viaduct that froze over, etc.)
This actually serves as a fine example as to why we cannot afford to reduce our police force in Hoboken.
