  1. A person is only lost if THEY don’t know where they are. If the person themselves knows where they are, and just the people looking for them are not in the know, then “the lost person” is not lost. How do we know he didn’t go to his friends house?

  2. Great to see lcsw, pd, and chaverim working together as mutual task agencies , it’s when they organize together the most success comes out of it, Thad what this town needs less bickering and more team effort

  3. good thing officer was wearing his 59-50…. i am sure the missing kid thought he was safe when he saw a familiar face looking for him……..
    good job by all agencies…….great communication by the main man…….

  4. Awesome work LCSW the town should chip in and get these guys some decent updated radio system, it’s apparent there crucial to the public safety system of Lakewood

  5. nice to see this town working hand in hand. now my question is why did’nt he go home after school? He ran away once before. I am glad he was found safe and sound. nice job People of Lakewood

  6. I would just like to say that this was very nice to read that all these agencies worked together to locate a missing person. this is another good reason why LCSW needs portable radios.

    LCSW, I support your reasoning for portable radios and hope you get them but at the same token I don’t want to see you having access to the police, fire and ems frequencies, this should stay out of the hands of non law enforcement, fire and ems people for safety and privacy issues. You should have your own frequency for your members to communicate with one another. Good luck LCSW and stay safe.

  7. To Jewishlife, the township should not have to chip into purchase LCSW radios or provide them with any equipment. If your that concerned then help them raise the funds through private donations. Keep in mind this private organization was organized by a concerned citizen, it’s not an agency or organization municipalities are required to provide. If the township gives them equipment and funds then whats stopping any other private citizen organization from getting the same treatment, now the township will definetly be in a huge deficit because they have to provide the same courtesy and treatment. This organization is great and they do good work but it’s not an organization that is an essential part of life in order to protect the citizens, businesses and visitors of Lakewood.
    Lets stop and look at the cutbacks in spending Lakewood Township has already taken from the current employees and departments of Lakewood, this would not be at all fair. How would you like it if your employer made cutbacks at your job which now makes it difficult for you to pay your bills. mortgage and have extra money to spend on your family and gave money to some private organization. I like what LCSW is doing but they need to be able to operate on their own funds and private donations, during these hard economical times government should curb their spending.
    Sorry LCSW you guys are great and I wish you the best of luck but you need to stay operating on your own. Good Luck.

  8. #12,20,22 &23 i couldnt agree with you more

    the township and residents of lakewood need to realize that there is indeed a need for lcsw and if they do work in hand togther we will have much more safer strrets in our town
    ty all for your hard work !

  9. Lakewood Township is under extreme pressure to hold the line on the budget. In order to fund LCSW, the funding would need to come from another source.

    It is easy to say “Fund this request”. It is difficult at best to allocate the funding by cutting other equally important programs. This community organization needs to be funded by private enterprise.

    Lakewood Township needs to continue to hold the line and reduce property taxes for all.

  10. Well I beileve that people should privately donate to make sure LCSW has the proper radio communication needed to function there’s no denying that they have been a pretty busy group in recent times and for the benefit and safety of the town and it’s visitors , lcsw can’t be ignored any more as if they don’t exzist there to out there, and in the safety fabric of where we all live, let’s hope none of us need them, and if one day we do let’s make sure they are the best equipped to handle any situation that may be presented to them, there here for us lets be there for them.
