The Borough of Seaside Park, located on the Barnegat Barrier Island in Ocean County, New Jersey, was incorporated in 1898. Seaside Park is a small town of only 0.77 square miles with a year-round population of just over 2,200 residents. With almost two miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, the borough’s main industry is summer tourism. Seaside Park is bordered on the north by the Borough of Seaside Heights and its amusement arcades, rides and boardwalk. To the south is South Seaside Park, which is an unincorporated section of Berkeley Township, and Island Beach State Park.

Seaside Park is located across the Barnegat Bay from Toms River, the county seat of Ocean County. It is easily reached by Route 37 from the west (Garden State Parkway exit 82 or Route 70 to Route 37 east) or Route 35 from the north (Garden State Parkway exit 98, Route 34 east to Route 35 south).

The Seaside Park Police Department has implemented its Body Worn Camera Program. All sworn members of the Seaside Park Police Department will be equipped with Axon Body 3 cameras. All uniformed personnel will have the Body Worn Camera affixed to their outermost garment in the upper chest/torso region.

Additionally, Body Worn Camera recordings will provide valuable feedback to Department Supervisors to correct any potential problems.

From our Borough Administrator Karen Kroon:

On Thursday, March 2 a deceased juvenile Humpback whale washed ashore in the Borough of Seaside Park. Notification was made to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center and within a few hours multiple agencies and resources were on the ground in our Borough to assist.

The Borough would like to thank and recognize everyone that helped support the mission of retrieving the whale from the surf, relocation, necropsy and, ultimately, the disposal of the whale.

Many Thanks To:

· The Marine Mammal Stranding Center

· Atlantic Marine Conservation Society

· National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

· NJDEP – NJ State Park Service

· NJDEP – Fish and Wildlife Bureau of Law Enforcement

· Seaside Park Department of Public Works

· Seaside Heights Department of Public Works

· Seaside Park Police Department

· Seaside Park Volunteer Fire Department – Station 45

· Seaside Heights Volunteer Fire Department – Station 44

· Tri-Boro First Aid Squad

· Bill Major for allowing the whale to be staged and necropsied on Funtown Beach and for lending and operating the heavy equipment necessary to move the whale

· The Sawmill Restaurant for feeding the volunteers and staff at the conclusion of the mission

Through the efforts of all these agencies, individuals and corporate citizens the mission was completed in about 30 hours.
