Weekend Update

Dear Resident,

This National Police Week 2021, we remember and honor the fallen officers who sacrificed their lives in service to others, while saluting those currently serving and protecting Marlboro Township and law enforcement throughout the country. Marlboro is continually ranked among the safest places to live in the United States and we thank the entire Marlboro Police Department for all they do to continue to make Marlboro a safe place to live, work and visit.

As a part of Police Week, representatives from our Police Department participated in the Police Unity Tour bicycling from Ocean County, NJ to Annapolis, Maryland to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum. We congratulate them on their efforts.
