LBPD's Keeping Connected With Community Kids Contest!
Attention Long Branch Kids!The Long Branch Police Officers miss seeing our kids now that schools are closed and social distancing is so important! We want to keep in touch with you virtually and have a little fun with some contests! A Brand New Contest posts every Monday & Friday at 1 PM on our Facebook page (facebook.com/LongBranchPolice) for the duration of home schooling. Two winners (one from Pre-K to 3rd & one from 4th to 8th) will win a free pizza from a local restaurant! Each contest will be a unique challenge with detailed instructions. Some examples may include photo, drawing, puzzle, essay, video or trivia contests. Winners will get a gift certificate for a free pizza with delivery from a local restaurant. The prize will be brought to their home by one of our officers.
Remember, contestants must be a Long Branch resident, currently in Pre-K through 8th grade.

Good luck to all! We can't wait to see what you share with us!
