Lakewood Police Investigating Incident at Local Park

The following was submitted to TLS via our Ask The Mayor column:

Hi! Thanks for being such a good understanding Mayor.

We had an incident last Saturday at Dzio Park where my volunteer and my two special needs kids were harassed by a family running after them and video taping them running away.

The park used to be a great outlet for my special need kids, were they used to give out there energy…Now the volunteer and my daughters are terrified to go…is there any way we can get security in parks.

Unfortunately we have gotten to this point were its not so safe anymore.

Waiting to hear from you


Mayor Coles forwarded the information to the Police Chief Greg Meyer, who responded the following:

Good morning,

I am also appalled by such behavior and will assign my quality of life officers to look into this and perhaps we can identify the offenders. Please in the future do not hesitate to contact us immediately for a fast response. 732-363-0200 press 0 for an officer.
