Response from Captain Matthew Feula, W.O. Police Department

Dear Mr. Kaiser:



I am in receipt of your e-mail with regard to the above subject matter from

Chief James P. Abbott. I apologize for the delay in responding back to your

e-mail. Since I have taken over as the Patrol Commander on November 7,

2005, a computer problem occurred that I was unaware of; therefore, I did

not receive any e-mail correspondence.

I left a voice mail for your today, November 28, 2005, on your business

telephone (973) 802-2816.



I completed a computer check of the Gregory Avenue area of the Township,

dating back to August 1, 2005. The incident that you are referring to in

your e-mails is an isolated incident that occurred on November 9, 2005 at

6:48 a.m. During that incident which occurred on Winding Way, a resident

was approached by a black male whom emerged from a brown four door Mercury

and encountered him on foot. He then brandished a knife at which time the

resident began to run east on Winding Way with the actor chasing him on foot

a short distance. The suspect then re-entered the Mercury and fled east on

Winding Way. The victim could not supply any further information and was

not injured during the incident.



There are no similar incidents that should concern your riders to date. I

have implemented a directed patrol for higher visibility along the Gregory

Avenue corridor during the early morning hours. I would be most

appreciative if you would forward to me a time schedule and complete route

for the Ridership Community of the Jitneys. I will make myself available to

you and the Rider Community, should you wish to discuss this or any other

concerns you may have. Please be advised that my day time telephone number

is (973) 325-4008 and my cell phone number is (973) 715-2443. Currently, you

may continue to e-mail at policechief@westorange.org until my own e-mail

address is established.








Captain Matthew Feula
