Harvey Cedars Borough

Traffic and Criminal Offenses

Town Overview

Over the years the original Harvey who gave Harvey Cedars its name has lived in either a cave burrowed into a hummock or in a shack under a grove of cedar trees near what is now the Harvey Cedars Bible Conference. But from a 1751 deed we now know that our Harvey is as ephemeral as Harvey the Rabbit. In the deed, the locality was designated as “a hammock and clump of cedars called Harvest Quarters.” And if you say “harvest cedars” often and fast enough, harvest will be clipped to harves — and it’s only a brief skip of the mouth to Harvey. Many offenses in Harvey Cedars occur in residential areas. The Harvey Cedars Borough Police maintain speed traps and check points on a fairly regular basis.
