Operation Blue Angel

Operation Blue Angel is a program run by the Piscataway Police Department and Senior Center to assist residents who, due to advanced age, mobility, or medical concerns, may be unable to answer their door in an emergency situation. 

Through Operation Blue Angel, a Police Department owned lock box similar to a realtor's lock box is mounted to a door of the home. A key, supplied by the resident, is locked inside the box. In the event of an emergency, responding police officers could retrieve the key by using a code accessed by the Communications Center, allowing them to quickly enter the home without causing damage. 

Applicants to Operation Blue Angel must meet certain criteria and agree to our terms and conditions such as 55 and older with a medical condition that is potentially incapacitating and lives alone.

The program is administered free of charge to any eligible resident.
