National Night Out at Middletown Township Municipal Building

Middletown Township’s National Night Out on August 7 was a huge success.

Funds for the purchase will be raised by the USA Track and Field certified Woofapalooza 5 Miler and Fun Walk on November 4 at Core Creek Park.

A Middletown Township K-9 Training Graduation

Chief Joseph Bartorilla had the privilege of attending Officer Steve Andrews’ and K9 Jester’s graduation today at the New Jersey State Police Canine Training Academy.  This was for explosives scent detection school, which was the first of two training courses and lasted 17 weeks.  Steve and Jester will be on patrol in Middletown Township for the summer, then, sometime in October, they will both return to NJSP for the second training course, the 20 week patrol/tracking school.  Graduation for that will be in February of 2018.  That is when K9 Jester will be a fully certified and trained police K9. Below are some photos from the graduation.
