The Lavallette Police Department does more then just provide protection for the community.
We have co-sponsored teen dances at the tennis courts during the summer.
We have an active Drug Abuse Resistance Education program for Lavallette Elementary School Students run by Patrolman Frank White.
We are involved the the Municipal Alliance program that funds recreational and educational projects for all ages. We also have a program in place for the seniors citizens that incorporates a daily phone check in to assure that citizens are not in need of help, which has aided many of Lavallette's older residents who have required assistance.
The Lavallette Police Department currently has a mix of police patrol vehicles, 4x4 patrol vehicles, a chief vehicle, a D.A.R.E. Car, all terrain vehicles, and jet ski's so we can patrol the roads, beaches, and bay front effectively.
