Public Safety Notice from the #LongBranchPD Detectives regarding door-to-door solicitation SCAM:
LBPD Detectives recently investigated a case involving a home improvement contractor attempting to SCAM local residents. The accused was going door-to-door soliciting for home improvement business. Once a homeowner agreed to service, the work was completed but the charge to the customer was tremendously over-priced. One senior resident in Long Branch agreed to chimney repairs at a cost of $180,000.00.
Please use extreme caution when dealing with solicitors and keep the following useful information in mind:
- Any solicitors in Long Branch are required to obtain a license through our Health Dept. as well as a solicitation permit from our Public Safety Office. They are instructed to keep a copy their signed solicitation permit on hand to show upon request. If they do not have one, they should NOT be at your door.
- Any solicitors should be wearing a name badge or have other company-specific identifiers. Contractors are required to have a home repair contractor license issued by the state of NJ.
- As always, do not give any money or personal information to anyone who cannot prove that they are representing an organization that has been approved to knock at your door.
If you have an unlicensed solicitor, come to your door, or believe you are a victim of a similar scam, contact the LBPD at 732-222-1000.
To avoid solicitors at your door, sign up for the City of Long Branch’s “No Knock Registry” at: https://www.longbranch.org/no-knock-registry

Introducing the SAFE PLACE Program!
Long Branch Police Department is proud to join Asbury Park and Red Bank as the first local organizations to partner with the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office as pilots of MCPO SAFE PLACE.
The program is designed as a partnership with local businesses in providing a safe place for the reporting of bias incidents and hate crimes. Participating locations display brightly colored decals in an entrance area, to show that the location will provide a safe environment for individuals to call 911 for assistance.
LBPD encourages interested businesses, social organizations, and schools to participate. Participation is FREE and “the only requirement is twofold: if a victim of any crime (especially a hate crime) enters the premises, call 911 immediately; and allow the victim to remain on the premises until police arrive”.
To learn more about participating, visit: https://mcponj.org/safe-place-initiative/ or contact the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at SafePlace@mcponj.org or Long Branch Police Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Many police reports can be made online!
Non-violent crimes such as theft (under $200), damaged or lost property and matter of record reports can be made online 24 hours a day.

LOCK IT OR LOSE IT!
Public Notice from the LBPD Detective Bureau:
LBPD reminds residents to lock their vehicles and NEVER leave keys, fobs, purses, wallets or any valuables on seats, the dash or anywhere in sight! NEVER leave boxes, bags, tools or equipment in the back of an open pick up! Take your belongings with you. Most instances of car burglaries can be avoided by simply locking the vehicle and removing any valuables that may attract a thief.
