Through a generous grant from the Hudson Farm Foundation, the Byram Police Department was able to purchase and fully equip two all-terrain vehicles and a trailer to transport them to locations throughout the Township. The vehicles will enable the department to more effectively patrol the Trails, frozen lakes and remote areas within the Township. They will also allow Officers to respond to calls for service in areas where a normal patrol vehicle would not be able to access. Officers serving on the ATV Unit have received advanced training in the use and safe operation of the vehicles.
The Byram Police ATV Unit has responded to several incidents since it was formed. Officers using the ATVs have participated in a search for a downed airplane in Hardyston, lost hikers in Allamuchy Mountain State Park on numerous occasions and they have assisted at the Hudson Farm charity hike each year it has been conducted.
