Hopewell Township Police Department

Emergency Management

Hopewell Valley has a regional Office of Emergency Management (OEM) including Hopewell Township, Hopewell Borough and Pennington Borough.

Police Chief Lance Maloney serves as the Executive Director of this regional office. Lieutenant William Springer serves as the Deputy Director for Hopewell Township. Both Hopewell Borough and Pennington Borough have Emergency Management Directors as well.

The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for planning for, responding to and coordinating efforts during major emergency events in the Valley. The office has developed and constantly updates a comprehensive emergency operations plan. Periodically the office conducts drills involving the police departments, fire departments, emergency medical units, communications centers, health department and other government agencies such as the public works departments.

The OEM utilizes an emergency operations center located in the Hopewell Township Police headquarters. This center is activated several times a year for incidents such as floods, major snowstorms, and other large scale events.

The Hopewell Valley OEM works closely with the Mercer County and New Jersey State Emergency Management Offices.

Hopewell Valley OEM utilizes several methods of alerting the public when there is an emergency event taking place:


In an effort to improve its emergency communications, Hopewell Township has launched a new community notification service designed to deliver important and timely information to residents in our area using the latest technology. This new service is called CodeRED. Using CodeRED, Township officials are able to send recorded voice messages to home phones and cell phones, text messages to cell phones and email messages.

This notification system was built to provide secure and reliable communications and connects municipal agencies to residents in real time. Officials can map out a select area for notification or send a message to all of Hopewell Valley, depending on the event.

CodeRED will supplement other methods currently used to rapidly get important information out to residents such as cable television notices and updates to the Hopewell Township website.
The Township has already obtained home phone (landline) contact information from Verizon and Comcast for emergency use. However, the Township does not have access to phone numbers for any other phone service providers. The Township also does not have access to cell phone data or email addresses.

Any resident seeking to receive all possible emergency information from Hopewell Township must register their cell phone and email information with CodeRED. In order to register additional phones, cell phones and emails please use the CodeRED website:

One may also access the CodeRED link on the left side of opening page of the Hopewell Township website:

Unlisted numbers and TDD/TTY requirements can all be entered.

The time to register is now; don’t wait for an emergency to happen.

If you previously registered your cellular phone number and/or email address with Global Connect there is no need to re-register with CodeRED.
