A Message from the Council President, 2014 PDF Print E-mail


From the Desk of the Township Council 

Council President Maria Maruca

It gives me great pleasure to write the final Township Council article for 2014.  As Council President, it always pleases me to reflect on the work of the Council over the previous twelve months. This report summarizes the Council’s activities during the year and there were a number of highlights.

We started the year with a new Police Chief, Mitch Little.  This year, the Police Department has initiated some cost and time saving measures in order to provide the best police services to the residents of Toms River.  One of the initiatives is “Coplogic” or a self-reporting system.  The self-reporting system allows the resident to file their own police report online if it relates to a theft or criminal mischief offense such as lost property or theft from an unlocked motor vehicle. The implementation of this system allows officers to spend those valuable hours that they would normally be taking those reports to a more efficient and effective use of their time concentrating on high crime areas and traffic enforcement.
