Washington, DC – On Monday, January 4, 2016, Congressman Tom MacArthur met with Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy, and toured Ocean County’s 911 Dispatch Call Center as well as the Armed Services Recruitment Center. MacArthur also met with Ocean County Prosecutor, Joseph D. Coronato and his team to review efforts to combat addiction in South Jersey.
“Thank you to Congressman MacArthur for the great opportunity to review the public safety concerns that directly impact the residents of Ocean County,” said Sheriff Mastronardy. “Our Dispatch Call Center handles over 300,000 calls a year and the Congressman was able to see first-hand just how valuable the center is to our county. Tom serves on the House Armed Services Committee in Washington, and we were honored to stop by each Armed Services recruitment office our department provides security for and meet with the men and women that serve our nation.”
“Law Enforcement’s ability to be proactive in addressing crime and successful in resolving community quality of life issues is tremendously dependent on building solid partnerships and garnering the support of our elected leaders. We appreciate greatly Congressman MacArthur’s insights, assistance and efforts in fulfilling our mission to Protect & Serve,” said Prosecutor Coronato.
“Ocean County is lucky to have a partner like Sheriff Mastronardy working to stem any public safety concerns brought to the department’s attention,” said Congressman MacArthur. “Thank you to Sheriff Mastronardy and the hardworking men and women that serve our community each day. I’m proud to represent the fine officers of the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department.”
MacArthur continued: “It was very helpful to have the opportunity to sit down with Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato and his team for a briefing. I was impressed and encouraged hearing about the efforts of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office to work with local law enforcement to combat the influx of narcotics, treat those suffering from the disease of addiction and employ innovative training programs to help police officers dealing with residents with mental health issues. Kudos to Prosecutor Coronato and the men and women of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office for their steadfast commitment to serving the residents of Ocean County.”
