Kean Hosts Crime Roundtable Webinar

Second Crime Discussion with Local Elected Officials and Law Enforcement Leaders

(February 27, 2024) BERNARDSVILLE, NJ – Last week, Congressman Tom Kean, Jr. (NJ-07) hosted a crime webinar roundtable with more than fifty local elected officials and law enforcement leaders. This roundtable is in response to the sudden and substantial uptick in home break ins and car theft across New Jersey. 

“Too many Garden State families now grapple with the distressing reality that their sense of security within their own hometown – even in their own driveway - is under threat,” said Congressman Kean. “It is imperative that we address these challenges head-on, fortifying our commitment to the safety and well-being in our communities. Together with mayors and law enforcement across the Seventh Congressional District, I am committed to prioritize the safety and security of our local families, neighborhoods, small businesses, and our law enforcement personnel.”  

Elected officials and law enforcement personnel from across the 7th Congressional District shared their experiences: 

“Bernards Township has been noted for many years as being of the safest towns in NJ by independent organizations, but our residents are concerned by the uptick of home burglaries associated with car thefts that began in the summer of 2023,” said Bernards Mayor Jen Asay. “I was grateful to hear from Congressman Kean as well as my fellow panelists who shared similar concerns and will look to partner with them to develop solutions to protect our residents.” 

“Thank you to Congressman Kean for leading a timely discussion around issues of public safety in our communities,” said Hunterdon County Sheriff Fred Brown. “Striving to keep Hunterdon County as one of the safest places to live is an important part of my responsibility as Sheriff, and I’m grateful that Congressman Kean is committed to assisting and standing by the law enforcement community.”
