Do you have a surveillance camera at your residence or business? If so, Freehold Township Police would like to partner with you to keep your neighborhood safe. Security cameras can be a great tool when solving crimes. However, police are not always aware who has surveillance cameras and potentially vital information to help solve a crime.

With SafeCam, Freehold Township Police are asking residents and businesses to voluntarily register their private video surveillance systems with the department and allow officers to contact them should a crime occur in or near where the camera is installed. The SafeCam program is 100% voluntary and does NOT provide Freehold Township Police with access to security camera systems that are privately owned by participants. You may opt out of the program at any time.

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Freehold Township / Monmouth County NJ) – County law enforcement officials will partner with municipal first responders in Monmouth County’s Western Region to conduct an active shooter drill at Monmouth County Vocational School District’s (MCVSD’s) Biotechnology High School and Career Center on Friday, June 23, 2023. The drill will give hundreds of municipal and county law enforcement officers and first responders an opportunity to train together during a realistic active shooter simulation, announced Freehold Township Chief of Police George Baumann.

“This drill brings together all of police departments in Western Monmouth to focus on improving our response to an active shooter event,” said Baumann, who will be serving as the incident commander of the event. “Our focus is on improving our communication and coordination between departments in order to keep children safe throughout the region.”

The scenario will include a law enforcement response and coordinated responses from other emergency responders and medical personnel. The exercise is intended to improve the capabilities of the Western Monmouth County Active Shooter Partnership, which includes law enforcement agencies in Allentown Borough, Manalapan, Englishtown, Marlboro, Freehold Township, Freehold Borough, Howell, and Colts Neck.

The exercise will also involve fire departments from Freehold Township, as well as EMS agencies from around Monmouth County.

The Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office, Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Monmouth County Emergency Response Team (MOCERT) will also participate in the event.

“This is the third regional full-scale drill we have conducted in the last five years, because active shooter training is of vital importance for public safety agencies in Monmouth County,” said Prosecutor Raymond Santiago. “We continue to build upon the lessons learned from our drills in Manasquan and Hazlet in order to improve our response to school safety events.”
Residents should expect to see a buildup of participants starting around 10:00 am on Friday, June 2023 at the East Freehold Showgrounds. The live portion of the event will take place around 1:00 pm, with participants utilizing both the MCVSD Biotechnology High School and the Career Center.
Residents will have no access to the East Freehold Showgrounds or the MCVSD Biotechnology High School and Career Center Campus from approximately 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on June 23.

Residents may observe increased first responder activity on Kozloski Road between the East Freehold Showgrounds and the Monmouth County Government Complex as part of the drill, but these roads will remain open during the drill.

"The Monmouth County Vocational School District has some of the best schools in the State of NJ," said Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden, whose office coordinated the funding for the event. “The district relies on both the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office and municipal agencies to provide the utmost of safety to all students and staff. As leaders in law enforcement we must always be prepared, and that’s why it’s extremely important to continue to address the issue of school violence by consistent active shooter drills and training. We are grateful for the support and thank the district in hosting this event.”

The full range of participants is expected to face a simulated active shooter inside the high school building. The exercise is being coordinated by Critical Response Group, Inc of Ewing Township, New Jersey and is funded through a Homeland Security Grant Program.

An outdoor media area will be established for any reporters who wish to cover the event. Press credentials from the New Jersey Press Association, or a similar organization, will be needed for access to the press area.

***update: confirmed***

For those residents hearing loud “booms” and other unusual noises tonight we believe this is a result of training being conducted at the joint base McGuire-Dix. The reason for the unusual volume of the noise is due to low cloud cover which amplifies the munition sound and distance of travel.
These unusual loud noises are being reported throughout Monmouth County.

***DISTRACTION THEFT ALERT*** FTPD recently received a report where a woman's wallet was removed from her purse while she was distracted at the grocery store.

When the woman went to get into her car after buying her groceries, an unidentified female, acting as a concerned citizen, approached her and told her there was a substance on the back of her car. The concerned citizen offered to help her clean it. When the victim got out of her car and was distracted by the female, an unidentified male party removed her wallet from her purse.

FTPD reminds everyone to be aware of their surroundings and keep their personal belongings close-by. If anyone observes anything suspicious, please call us at 732-462-7500 or dial 911 if you witness a crime in progress.

Thank you and stay safe.
