Press Information Office
The Press Information Office was created in June 1998 to foster an excellent working relationship between the East Brunswick Police Department and the media. The Press Information Office gathers and disseminates timely and accurate information regarding law enforcement efforts to the public through various print and broadcast media in the Township of East Brunswick.
Through the media, the Press Information Office is able to deliver information to the public. This information might include serious motor vehicle accidents, missing persons, or requests for help from potential witnesses to crimes or accidents. Information is distributed to citizens through news releases, press conferences, special events, and social media platforms.
The Press Information Office is committed to ensuring that the public is aware of our activities, our services, and our presence. The daily and consistent practice of openness, transparency, and cooperation with the media has resulted in a positive relationship, which in turn has generated confidence and trust from the public toward the entire East Brunswick Police Department.
Lieutenant Jason Fama currently serves as the Department's Press Information Officer. Please visit our Press Releases webpage for the latest news from the East Brunswick Police Department.
