Parsippany’s Chief of Police Addresses Recent Crime Wave with Official Statement

Residents and Business Owners of Parsippany,

As the Chief of Police for the Township of Parsippany–Troy Hills, I would like to address the recent crimes that have been occurring, including residential burglaries, car burglaries, and motor vehicle thefts.

Let me assure you we are working diligently on these incidents and investigating them fully. Although we cannot specifically disclose all the investigative means we are using, so as not to compromise any investigation, we are coordinating with various State and County resources to reduce criminal activity in Parsippany and apprehend these perpetrators. Additionally, we are investing in new technology for crime prevention and investigation, which we believe will greatly assist our efforts.

Be aware that these incidents are happening not only in Parsippany but across New Jersey. We share the same sentiments and frustration that other Police Departments and local governments have expressed regarding the rise in crime, which we contribute in part to Bail Reform.

In an attempt to have higher visibility, our officers have been conducting more direct patrols throughout the Township, day and night. I strongly feel that preventing these crimes needs to be handled in a cooperative effort by both the police department and the community. We have used our Social Media outlets to educate our public on crime prevention awareness and strategies, which offer the best options to consider for home and business security assessments and measures. In addition, we have offered and helped to facilitate the creation of a Neighborhood Watch Program in different areas of our Township.

If you have been victimized by any of these criminals and you feel that our Investigative Division is not immediately responding, have no doubt that our Detectives are exhausting their collaborative efforts and following up on every lead. This includes collecting information from similar incidents within Parsippany and other municipalities within our County or State and comparing the reported details.

Please continue to contact us with your concerns or to report any suspicious activity immediately by calling (973) 263-4300 or in an emergency, please dial 9-1-1.

Your Police Department and officers are here to serve you.

Thank you,

Chief Richard Pantina
