The Hazlet Township Police Department is located in Monmouth County along the Bayshore area and provides police service to approximately 20,500 residents. This is our first year participating in the Pink Patch Project, which all our officers will be wearing a pink and grey shoulder patch on their uniforms for the month of October. Our police union has already set up a fundraiser page for breast cancer awareness with the proceeds going to a local charity. We look forward to expanding our fundraising efforts and spreading more awareness in the years to come!
The Hunterdon County Sheriff's Office is located in Flemington, NJ. The Sheriff’s Office provides security for the Hunterdon County Justice Center and its occupants. These include Superior Court judges, their staffs, other court personnel, the probation department, and the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office is also responsible for prisoner transportation to and from the Hunterdon County Correctional Facility, between counties within the state and from outside New Jersey. Prisoner transports are not only for Superior Court purposes, but also for municipal courts, extraditions, medical emergencies and appointments. Non-support and violation of probation warrant service is a significant function of the Office of the Sheriff, as is the service of domestic violence “temporary” and “final” restraining orders. Civil warrants, writs of execution, levies on and postings of property, and the sale of real property after foreclosure proceedings are functions that most people associate with the Sheriff. The Hunterdon County Sheriff’s Office is very active in many citizen programs, such as Project Lifesaver, Child I.D. Program, the Senior ID Program, and the Attorney ID Program, as well as many other service programs.
2020 is the first year the Hunterdon County Sheriff's Office and NJ FOP Lodge 94 are participating in the Pink Patch Project. 100% of the proceeds from our pink patch sales will benefit the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.
