PARSIPPANY — On October 2, 2018, Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Supervisor Patrick LaGuerre and Detective Spence Osaigbovo joined Kim Nelson-Edwards of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) to conduct the “Safe Stop” program at Parsippany Hills High School. This program was organized with the help of Parsippany Hills High School physical education teacher Mark Smith. Students from the tenth grade attended the program throughout the morning.

“Safe Stop” is a program created by the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, which aims to ensure that every traffic stop in New Jersey ends safely for all involved parties. The presentation educated the students on what to do and what not to do during a traffic stop. The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and NOBLE aim to continue working with the community to develop strong relationships between the Morris County community and local law enforcement. This event at Parsippany Hills High School is one of many such community outreach programs that the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office will conduct in the near future.

Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp stated, “Safe Stop is an extremely valuable program in ensuring that members of the Morris County community are comfortable when working with our local law enforcement. The safety of our residents and of our law enforcement officers is of the utmost importance”.
