The most complete and most convenient source for news and information about the borough of Barrington, N.J.
As noted in Monday’s “Barrington police issuing traffic tickets at much higher rates” piece, I reached out to Barrington Police Chief Joe Eisenhardt on Thursday for a comment on the number of traffic summonses more than doubling between 2010 (208 tickets in February-March-April) and 2012 (422 tickets in February-March-April).
In the piece published Monday, I promised to post any response from borough officials prominently. On Monday evening, Chief Eisenhardt sent me the following in response to me inquiring whether there was any reason behind the increase (heightened enforcement? a decision to give fewer warnings and more tickets? something else?):
“There is no reason that I am aware of. Our officers do a great job everyday and traffic enforcement is just a part of what they do.”
