A Message from the Shrewsbury Police Department

The Shrewsbury Police Department is warning residents of ongoing phone scams. Any person who receives a phone call, where the caller demands money be sent to them for any reason, should question the validity of the call.  Some recent phone scams include the IRS, JCP&L, "grandparent scam", or ransom.  The JCP&L Scam is where a caller threatens the victim, telling them that he will have their electricity turned off unless a delinquent payment is made immediately through a money order.  The IRS scam usually entails the caller claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service and threatens arrest unless similar payments are made.  The "grandparent scam", is a scheme in which an older person receives a telephone call from someone claiming to be a grandchild in need of money.  The caller usually claims to be under arrest and needs the grandparent to quietly and immediately wire money through Western Union or money order.  The ransom scam is where the caller states they have their relative and demand a ransom for their safe return.  In most occasions, the caller will want the money sent to them via green dot moneypak, western union, or money order.  If monies are owed to companies, official correspondence will be made through the mail and not by threatening calls.  Any resident who has been victimized or has received similar type calls are asked to contact the Shrewsbury Police Department at 732-741-2500.

Temporary Water Treatment Changes

As part of a maintenance program for its water distribution system, New Jersey American Water will temporarily change the water treatment process at its Swimming River Water Treatment Plant in Colts Neck and its Jumping Brook Water Treatment Plant in Neptune from chloramines (a combination of ammonia and chlorine) to free chlorine. The treatment change will begin the week of January 19, 2015 and last through April. During this period, customers may notice a slight increase in the taste and smell of chlorine in their water. This is normal and will only be temporary until the system maintenance is complete. New Jersey American Water will continuously monitor water quality to ensure that it meets or surpasses federal and state drinking water standards. more...
