Up to the Task

News Staff's picture

Last week, the Livingston Police Department, along with the Essex County prosecutor’s office and eight other local police departments in the western part of the county, announced the formation of a joint task force, designed to battle crime in the area.

The task force is, in part, a response to the rise in reported vehicle break-ins and thefts in Livingston, as well as neighboring towns, in the past year-plus.

Credit goes to these agencies for taking a proactive approach to these crimes, and for recognizing that this is a trend and not a coincidental spike in break-ins that could be attributable to a small sample size. The frequency of these crimes should drop, hopefully very soon, because they are being acknowledged as such.
