Working to “S.A.V.E.” Ocean County
The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office is teaming up with the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness to help make sure the Shore is prepared for a possible terrorist attack.
The "Security Awareness and Vigilance for Everyone" (S.A.V.E.) program scheduled for March 11th is designed to train venue managers, security personnel and event planners on what to do if a terrorist should strike. The topics are meant to fill in the gaps that can occur in screening procedures at large events and other gatherings.
Prosecutor's Office spokesman Al Della Fave said "Number one, 'See Something, Say Something' works, it is very important, but number two, for those people who are charged with these public areas, that that's not enough for them."
The one-day program runs from 8:00am to 4:00pm at the Ocean County Training Center, located at 200 Volunteer Way in Waretown. Participation is free, but attendees are encouraged to pre-register because seating is limited.
