LACEY – The Lacey Township Police Department have partnered with the Ocean Mental Health Services On P.O.I.N.T (Proactive Outreach In Needs and Treatment) program to serve the community with mental health and social service needs.
The program inserts social workers in selected Ocean County police departments (Lacey, Stafford, Little Egg Harbor, and South Toms River) and they work with police officers to discuss the community needs.
These needs include substance abuse, mental health concerns, senior assistance, juvenile assistance, and much more.
Every Wednesday, an Ocean Mental Health social worker is assigned to a police department to provide these services.
