Mercer County residents can easily drop off unused and expired prescription pills, by bringing them to the parking lot across from the Mercer County Administration Building at 640 South Broad Street in Trenton, between 10:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. 

The disposal event will also collect vape pens and other e-cigarette devices, however ONLY after all batteries have been removed prior by the individual. Syringes, sharp instruments, liquid medications, or solutions cannot be accepted. Participants in the drop-off are asked to follow social distancing rules.

(Trenton, NJ) – Mercer County Sheriff Jack Kemler has issued a warning to residents regarding a jury duty related telephone scam. 

Over the past week, the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous complaints from residents who were contacted by a Sheriff’s Officer stating they owed money for missing jury duty over the summer months. Further, they are instructed to meet at the County Courthouse to pay $2000 in bail. The scam caller is said to speak in an aggressive tone. 

These calls are scams. At no time will a Mercer County Sheriff’s Officer call a resident and ask for monies related to jury duty enforcement. The best advice is to exercise common sense. Residents are advised to hang up on such a call and report it to the Sheriff’s Office at 609-989-6111.

City mourning the lost of a smiling Soul

If you have ever broken a bone and went to Champion Orthopedics, you most likely would have come into contact with smiling star Nyshera Peterson at the front desk or in the exam room because she certainly did it all. Nyshera was really passionate about her position at Champion Orthopedics and if it was snowing or any type of hazardous conditions, she would still drive to work being the woman she was, she has never called out of work unless she was hospitalized. Nyshera previously worked for Walmart in Princeton NJ for a number of years as a Customer Service Representative. Nyshera recently suffered a stroke while working and was transported to the hospital where she went under treatment for approximately two months and she eventually passed away on April 2nd leaving behind her Husband, two sons and family who love her dearly. Nyshera was very well known in the Trenton community for her fried chicken, the percolator dance and for her overall greatness. Nyshera was considered a mother figure to many people and she helped everyone she could when she could. She will definitely be missed. ~Peterson

Peterson-I love you! NyShera was definitely not going out without a crowd of people.❤️❤️ I have been through a lot as a child and she was there though it all. I was never the shining star in middle or high school, but she set me straight and continued to help making sure I was good. The last thing I tired to get her to do was come to the American Dream Mall. I said to her I was excepted into the Law Enforcement Academy, she was so happy for me. I never knew that would be our last conversation. NyShera would say “Live your best life” So please live your best life.
