9/11 Memorial Monument Complete-Located at Toms River Town Hall Courtyard PDF Print E-mail

TOMS RIVER TOWNSHIP- Last year, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey donated a portion of a steel beam to Toms River Township.  The steel came from inside one of the Twin Towers that was brought down by terrorists on September 11, 2001.   “The beam is a symbol that represents the significance and importance that 9/11 still has for us,” said Toms River Township Mayor Thomas Kelaher. “We needed to find a way to honor those lost in the tragedy and we also needed someone to help us build a formal monument, so we reached out to the Toms River Kiwanis Daybreak, a local civic group, and they built a nice memorial to surround the beam.”

Toms River Police to Participate in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day PDF Print E-mail

The Toms River Police Department, along with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) New Jersey Division, would like to invite the public to participate in this year’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which will take place on Saturday, April 26, 2014.

Toms River residents who want to rid their homes of potentially dangerous prescription drugs in a safe and non-hazardous manner will be able to do so between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Toms River Police Department, 255 Oak Avenue, Toms River (Front lobby of the Police Department).

The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

According to the DEA, seventy percent of young people abusing prescription pain relievers get them through friends or family.

In addition to this growing drug problem, unused and expired prescription medications can also represent an environmental hazard. Most individuals are not aware of methods to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away; both of which have potential safety and health hazards.

The Toms River Police Department would also like to remind residents that they can dispose of unused or expired medication on a year-round basis. The drop-off site at Police Headquarters remains open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
