Mountainside Borough’s Operation Blue Angel Program


Operation Blue Angel is a program offered by the Mountainside Borough Police Department and Senior Coordinator to assist Mountainside residents, who due to advanced age, mobility, living alone or medical concerns may be unable to answer their door during an emergency. The program is administered free of charge to any eligible Mountainside resident.

Through Operation Blue Angel, a police department-owned lock box (similar to a realtor’s lock box) is installed on a door or railing of the home. A key, supplied by the resident, is locked inside the box. In the event of an emergency, responding police officers are able to retrieve the key by using a confidential code allowing us to quickly enter the home without causing damage.

Applications can be found on the website  Contact Kim Moriak at 908-232-4406 to apply.
