  1. bless you all for protecting our town and keeping our residents safe. you have my full support and much appreciation for your help in this difficult time of need.

  2. Jackson PD has assisted with providing officers also. Everyone has been assigned to different duties and the show of respect and support by all the Police agencies throughout NJ has been unbelievable.

  3. #7, its not his badge number. If you notice it is a black memorial band covering the badge out of respect for the dead officer. the cap\tains badge number is not 317

  4. At the end of the day we are lucky to be surrounded by people ready to chip in and help when they are so needed to offer relief to our tormented force. To all those involved thank you so much!

  5. It Is Unbelievable How All The Surrounding Area Police Departments Work Together. Thank You Brick And Toms River Forces For Helping Out.

  6. Thank you Brick, Jackson and Toms River Police department for assisting the Lakewood community in a time of need. May God protect all police officers from senseless evil. Amen!

  7. we can learn a thing or two about achdus from these wonderful officers around the country who have come together in this trying time. “Eizeh hu chochom halomeid mekol adom”

  8. i hope the brick and tr pd write all you law breakers tickets….cell phones, stop signs, these are rules and not optional. Bring in some revenue for the town and write some serious tickets tonight boys!!!!

  9. you dont belong on this site. go to to place you misplaced comments. we have enough hatred in this town. now is a time for unity.

    thank you TR and Brick for being here. I already saw some TR police in lakewood on Tuesday Eve delaing with Rt 88 liquor store.


    PS if you see NO#20 give him a ticket for disturbing the peace.

  10. Brick,Toms River Police will not put up with this town that turned to garbage,Watch out for tickets community,no running to the mayor,at least for the next 24hrs

  11. I agree with other towns coming in and giving tickets. I hope the guy who turned in front of me who didn’t use his turning signals gets one for actually believing he was right and I was wrong. Follow the laws of the government and people wouldn’t make such harsh and negative comments.
    #27… who cares? Isn’t your safety and the safety of your family worht it?
    Thank you Brick and TR and for TR PD for responding to the scene of an accident on the Lkwd/Jackson border in a very timely manner. It is appreciated.

  12. to #27 don’t you have any shame, a police officer died in the line of duty, protecting lakewood people, what does it matter who paid for this,we as a community need to be as one not as 2
