Cyber Bullying for Parents

At Black River Middle School
Wednesday, April 23
7:00 p.m.
Cyber Bullying for Parents is a program presented by Keith Dunn, a retired undercover agent for the National Internet Crimes against Children Task Force.  The presentation explores cyber bullying and the many issues facing parents today.  In addition, there will be a live online demonstration that illustrates how quickly a child can become involved in an unsafe situation.

Keith Dunn founded the KDCOP Foundation in 2013 with the goal of bringing cyber safety assemblies to every school in the U.S. for little or no cost.  Keith has already spoken to over one million students and 500,000 parents around the country, and he has recently joined with many state D.A.R.E. organizations and other corporate partners to spread the message of online security for kids.  To learn more, visit

Operation Take-Back 

On Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 10am-2pm, the Chester Township Police Department will be partaking in the Drug Enforcement Administration- National Take-Back Initiative. During last October’s Operation Take-Back Day citizens turned in 647,211 pounds (324 tons) of expired and unwanted medications for safe and proper disposal at the 5,683 take-back sites that were available in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories. This is the second-largest collection of medications in seven Take-Back Days. When the results of the seven events to date are combined, the DEA and its state, local, and tribal law-enforcement and community partners have removed over 3.4 million pounds (1,733 tons) of medication from circulation.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications.

The medications can be dropped off at the Chester Township Police Department located at 1 Parker Road (behind the Municipal Building), on April 26th between 10am-2pm. Any questions can be directed to Lt. Thomas Williver at (908) 879-5514 ext. 835 or at twilliver@ctpdnj.org.
