[ARCHIVED] Union to Provide ID cards for Persons with Special Needs

The Township of Union would like to announce that the Union Police Department will now be providing identification cards for special needs children and adults.

“We are truly vested in the well being of each and every resident of the Township of Union,” said Mayor Manuel Figueiredo. “It gives me a great sense of pride to know that, together with the parents of our special needs children, we came up with something so important and meaningful.”

The ID’s are easily obtained by filling out a form on either the Township of Union’s website, or via the Township of Union mobile app- where, from your smartphone you can, not only fill out the form but upload a photo of your child right from your camera roll.

This program not only provides an easily accessible identification card that will contain personal data and safety information, but it will also aid first responders in their efforts to provide the best quality of service to our special needs community.

“The Union Police Department shares a great concern for the safety of our residents,” said Police Director Daniel Zieser. “Having all pertinent and vital information in the face of an emergency makes all the difference when it comes to saving lives.”

For additional information on the ID Card program, please contact Sgt. Michael Boll, Community Relations, Union Police Department at 908-851-5000 or via email at
