For the last 13-plus years, the Harrison Township Police Department has sponsored the Senior Citizens Luncheon, which is held during the Thanksgiving season.

Upon request, officers provide house checks for our residents while they are away on vacation. Information can be obtained by contacting our office during business hours.

Hazard Mitigation Plan
Currently, we are participating with the County Office of Emergency Management to update the municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The original plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent possible.
