The Town of Boonton Police Department is pleased to offer the Community Alert System to the members of our community. This free system allows community members to register to receive email or text notifications directly from us and get instant notices about everything from gas leaks to missing persons, traffic accidents and road closures. Nixle, LLC developed this secure messaging technology to open trustworthy, reliable communications between governmental agencies and the communities they serve. Only authenticated agencies and organizations are permitted to use Nixle, which prevents false messages and impersonations.

These alerts are provided through the secure Nixle site, which is used by over 3000 public safety agencies around the U.S.A. and is dedicated to providing verified public safety information to community residents.

Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for Everbridge, an Emergency and Community Alert Program that is provided to Town of Boonton residents through the County of Morris' Office of Emergency Management. Everbridge allows you to receive alerts through multiple means of communication.

In addition to your home phone you can add mobile phones, Voice over IP landlines (Vonage, Cable, Fios telephone systems etc.), e-mail and/or text messaging to be included to receive messages from both the Emergency Alert and Community Notification System.  You can also choose the order in which you receive the notification. These systems allow the Town of Boonton Police and Morris County to easily and swiftly communicate with residents and interested parties through all of today’s available technology.

The current database includes only traditional wire-line telephone numbers, (the “land line” phone you may, or may not, have in your home), that are published.  If you want the system to send alerts to other communication devices that you use, or your non-published traditional phone, you will have to provide your contact information by logging into the system and sign up for alerts. Click the Citizen Alert Notification Sign Up image above to register.

Everyone knows a trip to Motor Vehicles can be a harrowing experience, taking sometimes hours out of your day. The MVC provides several online transactions, such as registration renewals, address change requests, and surcharge payment processing. You can go to their site by clicking the License Plate to the right.
The National Terrorism Advisory System, or NTAS, replaces the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS). This new system will more effectively communicate information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the public, government agencies, first responders, airports and other transportation hubs, and the private sector. It recognizes that Americans all share responsibility for the nation's security, and should always be aware of the heightened risk of terrorist attack in the United States and what they should do. All residents are reminded to remain vigilant and report any activity that may seem suspicious.
