Manchester Police Chief Plans Law Enforcement Talks At Library

From Manchester Township Police Chief Brian Klimakowski:

Officials from the Manchester Township Police and Ocean County Library are teaming up for an important six-part monthly public safety series.

“Staying Safe in Manchester Township,” a free series about law enforcement, emergency services and public safety, will kick off at the 21 Colonial Drive library on Monday, June 2 when Chief of Police Brian Klimakowski talks about the Division of Police and the issues facing residents.

“These library programs will give the residents of Manchester Township an overall understanding of what the Division of Public Safety does to serve our community on a daily basis,” said Klimakowski.

Other sessions in the series will cover Manchester’s emergency services, school security and safety, crime prevention, Internet safety, and driver and traffic safety. Each session will include a question and answer period.

“We’re always looking for ways to increase the unmatched transparency of the Manchester Township Police in showing residents how we operate. This series of programs offers those insights, as well as valuable information on how we all can remain safe,” Klimakowski said.

A Public Safety representative will be on hand at each session to help residents enroll in the NIXLE emergency notification system. This system is used by officials in Manchester and throughout the state to instantly update residents about emergency situations through text message and email alerts. Online NIXLE registration also is available through www.Manchesterpolicenj.com.

Each “Staying Safe in Manchester Township” session is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m., one Monday per month, and is open to all ages. Registration for each session is requested and can be completed by calling 732-657-7600 or visiting www.theoceancountylibrary.org. Those who attend all sessions will receive a certificate of completion.

The police don't have far to go to see drug users and possible connections to drug dealers..just walk across the building from PD HQ to Township hall offices!
