Homeland Security is the responsibility of all levels of government and includes citizen participation.
Homeland Security involves the coordination of multiple agencies and programs into a single integrated agency to address any threat to our homeland.
As part of our Homeland Security responsiblities the agency has personnel assigned to Emergency Management. The agency’s Operations Division Commander, Captain Thomas Barstow serves as the Municipal Counter-Terrorism Coordinator and acts as a liaison between this agency and the County, State and Federal Government for any terrorism related activity.
The responsibility of homeland security is a shared responsibility of everyone. If you see anything that looks suspicious it should be reported to local authorities. The Manalapan Township Police Department will work with other local, county, state and federal agencies to ensure that any reported suspicious activity is investigated to its logical conclusion. This often starts with people who know their neighborhood or workplace seeing something that does not look right and reports it to authorities. It starts with you.
