The Ocean County St. Patrick’s Day Parade will march through Seaside Park and Seaside Heights this Saturday, coinciding with a traffic enforcement detail that will be manned by several local police departments and county agencies.
Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced that on Saturday, April 2, a traffic enforcement detail will be initiated between the hours of 3 p.m. and 11 p.m. in the towns of Seaside Heights, Seaside Park, Toms River, Lavallette, Mantoloking, Bay Head and Point Pleasant Beach.
Officers were seen programming electronic message boards in several of those towns Thursday.
Departments “will have extra patrols on the road looking for signs of impaired and erratic driving,” Billhimer stated.
Officers from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, Seaside Heights Police Department, Toms River Township Police Department, Lavallette Police Department, Mantoloking Police Department, Bay Head Police Department, Point Pleasant Beach Police Department, and New Jersey State Policewill participate.
Billhimer reminded drivers in the announcement that they can dial #77 to report aggressive or unsafe driving.
“Please be prepared to provide a description of the vehicle and occupants, its location and direction of travel, and a license plate number if possible,” he said.
The parade begins at 12 noon Saturday along the Boulevard, primarily through Seaside Heights.
