On Wednesday, Sheriff Shaun Golden’s Office, in conjunction with the Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey, participated in the Touch a Truck Program. Fire Trucks, Public Works Trucks, Police Trucks and the Sheriff’s Mobile Command Unit visited Jewish communities in Manalapan, Marlboro and Aberdeen to give children the opportunity to learn about the equipment and how it is used for public safety.
“It’s our pleasure, to once again, support the Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey when it comes to promoting public safety awareness,” said Golden. “This is an opportunity for children to explore the different types of emergency vehicles, become educated on what they are used for and meet members of the law enforcement agencies who protect and serve their communities.”
“This is a great opportunity for our young people in the Jewish community to engage with members of law enforcement and learn how first responders keep our communities safe,” said Keith Krivitzky, CEO, Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey. “The Jewish community thanks the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office, Manalapan, Marlboro and Aberdeen Townships and the Monmouth County Department of Public Works for donating their time to this important program.”

Open to the public from 11 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. the expo will include vehicle demonstrations and lectures.
