TOMS RIVER-In a continued partnership with local law enforcement agencies, members of the Toms River Police Department conducted active shooter training at High School East on September 3rd with the Toms River Regional School District’s security team including school resource officers (SROs), Class III and Class II officers, and school safety officers.

As a top priority again for the 2019-2020 school year, this training was conducted with the safety and security of the district’s staff, students, and families in mind. For the second year, all 19 of the district’s school locations will have at least one armed law enforcement/safety officer assigned to the buildings.

The district will also continue to work closely throughout the school year with other local law enforcement agencies including the police departments of Toms River, Pine Beach, Beachwood, and South Toms River and also the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

This drill was just one of many that the officers will participate in throughout the year as training in law enforcement is ongoing.
