  • Has your department provided additional training to your officers in... regards to citizens rights to not identify? Very poorly trained officers who were involved in the popular YouTube video in front of the Naval Base.

    I’m so glad to see that since 9/11 your department has suspended the... rights of your citizens. And the fact that a law that has been on the books since 2010 and you are clueless is kind of alarming. Because of 9/11, my rights are still my rights, and if you won’t recognize them, then the terrorist have one. See More

Police Department Receives Donation of a CED from Township Resident

The Manchester Township Police Department is extremely grateful to Township resident, Betty Bulbach, for her generous donation of a Conducted Energy Device (CED) to the agency. The device, more commonly known by its former brand name of Taser, was approved for use by law enforcement in Ocean County earlier this year. However, because the purchase of CEDs is currently restricted to law enforcement agencies, Ms.... Bulbach donated the monetary equivalent. The money will be used by the agency to purchase a fully equipped unit and its addition will directly benefit the members of the Patrol Bureau in their daily operations.

After reading an article in the Manchester Patch about a recent CED deployment, Township resident Betty Bulbach, who is 93-years-old and active in the Manchester community, became intrigued. She decided to look into purchasing a CED for the Police Department. Ms. Bulbach eagerly approached her son-in-law, who assisted her in making contact with the police department and arranging to make a donation for the purchase of a device. The donation was presented to the Patrol Bureau Commander, Lt. James Komsa on June 19, 2017 by Ms. Bulbach’s son-in-law, Richard Orne.

Earlier this year, the Township Council approved the purchase of 20 Taser X2 Conducted Energy Devices after police administrators presented a case to the Council that CEDs would prove advantageous to the department. Only days after the CEDs were put into service this past March, a CED was used to subdue a suicidal Manchester woman who was armed with a knife and slashing her arms and neck. The CED allowed responding officers to diffuse the situation immediately.

The generous donation from Betty will allow for the purchase of one additional CED which will put on the road immediately.

Police Searching for Medicine Shoppe Burglary Suspect Manchester Township— Manchester Township Police are searching for a man captured on video surveillance burglarizing The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy in Whiting early Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, Mothers Against Drunk Driving-New Jersey and the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety recognized police officers throughout New Jersey for their extraordinary efforts in preventing car crashes through DWI enforcement.

The Manchester Township Police Department is proud to announce that Ptl. Michael Guarino was one of the officers recognized amongst his colleagues throughout the State for his commitment to DWI enforcement. The ceremony t...ook place at Rutgers University with approximately 500 law enforcement officers in attendance.

Ptl. Guarino, who is a five year veteran of the Manchester Police Department, led agency in DWI arrests for 2016 with a total of 9 DWI arrests. Additionally, Ptl. Guarino is a certified Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) and completed 29 DRE evaluations in 2016. Ptl. Guarino also participated in several high visibility DWI enforcement campaigns throughout the year including DWI grant operations and DWI checkpoints.

As a certified Drug Recognition Expert, Ptl. Guarino received extensive academic and practical training in the evaluation of drivers who are suspected of driving while under the influence of drugs. This is more commonly known as “drugged-driving.” Ptl. Guarino is also part of the Ocean County DRE program where he is often called out to assist other agencies within the County to evaluate drivers suspected of “drugged driving.”

Keeping the roadways of Manchester safe from drunk and drugged drivers is nothing new to Ptl. Guarino. In 2014, he received the Kimberly-Ames DWI Certificate of Recognition for his unwavering commitment to keeping not only the residents of Manchester safe, but also those who pass though it by rigorously enforcing DWI laws.

The Manchester Township Police hosted a six day long re-certification training course for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) which was attended by 10 of our officers. Becoming an EMT takes dedication, as 210 hours of training are required and a re-certification course must be completed every three years.

Given the variety of calls received on a daily basis, our officers must be prepared to respond to medical emergencies. Additionally, they are often the first responders on... scene, and must be able to render life-saving care prior to the arrival of emergency medical professionals. The 10 officers in attendance have taken their first responder training to the next level which benefits our residents in need of emergency medical assistance.

This is just one of the many training programs on numerous topics that our officers regularly attend. Staying up to date on and prepared to take on the many challenges of law enforcement work is critical to providing the best service to the residents of Manchester Township.

Upon arrival, officers observed a red,...

It was a heartwarming moment on Friday night as several of our officers had the opportunity to reunite with Hannah Donner, a local teen they helped to rescue from a serious Route 530 crash this past September.

The officers, Ptl. Thomas Chant, Ptl. Patrick Mabie, Ptl. Matthew Walaszek, and Sgt. Joseph Hankins joined the Donner family, including parents Tom and Donna, for "Heroes for Hannah" basketball fundraiser at the Pine Belt Arena in Toms River. These officers, as well as... Ptl. Michael Steffen, all responded to the call and were honored to oblige when the Donner family asked if they could reunite to say thank you.

We wish Hannah, who is set to graduate from Central Regional High School, all the best as she heads to The College of New Jersey following graduation! She is an inspiration, and we're grateful to see her continued recovery.

The event was organized to raise money to help with Hannah's medical bills; anyone interested in making a donation can contact Lisa Mahon at for information. Read all about Hannah's story in this Manchester Patch article:…/nine-months-after-near-fatal-crash-manc…
