The Ocean Township Police Department will utilize a new communications service effective immediately, that allows us to send important, real time, valuable community information directly to residents using the latest technology.

The Nixle Community Information Service allows us to create and publish messages to be delivered to subscribed residents via cell phone text message and/or email.  Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s web site at  In the very near future, residents will also be able to view the messages on the Township of Ocean’s website.

Messages may include missing persons, road closures, severe weather warning as well as other relevant safety and community event information.

The messages can be sent specifically to residents registered within a ¼ mile radius, giving them the opportunity to receive trustworthy information relevant only to their neighborhood.  Residents decide from which local agencies they want to receive information.  Subscribers can also choose the way in which alerts are received, whether it is by email, text message, or over the web.

Nixle builds on the foundations of other public-to-public communication service, such as Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace, but adds a key component: security.  When citizens receive information from our agency via Nixle, they know it can be trust.

Residents of the Township of Ocean and those in neighboring communities can immediately begin receiving pertinent via text message, email, and web by registering at

We are very excited to have you experience it for yourself.  If you have any questions about Nixle please contact Lt. George Thompson at (609) 693-4007.

Swift 911 Emergency Notices

In an effort to provide more reliable communications with Residents in the Township of Ocean, the Township of Ocean Police Department has implemented Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as our Emergency Notification service provider.

SWIFT911™ is a high speed notification program with the capability of delivering recorded warnings to the entire community, via telephone, email, text or pager. There are already over 3000 phone numbers in the Town’s database, and as transmitted through the Township of Ocean Police Department, the system can contact up to four telephone numbers until reaching the designated party. Emergency messages are able to reach TTY (teletypewriter) phones used by those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Additionally, the system employs a Do Not Call component for those who do not wish to receive the alert.

Swift911™ in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information.

All the calls you receive will have the Caller ID of the Township of Ocean Police Department. If you are not receiving these calls, please fill out the form below to add or update your contact information. You may also remove yourself from our lists.
