The streets of Newark are about to get a little safer, thanks to a new community policing program.
Local and state officials announced the Newark Street Smart Pedestrian Bike Safety Program during Monday night’s police-community roll call.
"Its aims are quite simple. It's to help make the city streets safer for children, adults and seniors who are pedestrians in our city,” said Newark Public Safety Director Brian O'Hara.
The campaign will focus on five intersections throughout Newark with the greatest need for pedestrian education.
