Ocean County law enforcement will draw on the raid that led to the capture of former al-Quaida leader Osama bin Laden to hone their skills for threat responses – the first time the techniques and technology are used in New Jersey.

Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato, Berkeley Township Police Chief Karin DiMichele and county school officials announced Monday that the prosecutor’s office will be hosting a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary threat exercise at Central Regional High School in Bayville to unveil New Jersey’s first ever high tech threat response model.

The exercise, which will be held Aug. 16, will give a full visual demonstration of the newest revolutionary response plan developed by our military’s most elite Special Operation forces leveraging the hard-fought lessons learned during the global war on terror, said Al Della Fave, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office.

“This model, explained in its simplest terms, allows incident commanders/first responders to better coordinate the threat scene by visually tracking response assets in real time,” he said.

The assessment will run from 10 a.m. to about 11 a.m. at Central Regional High School in Berkeley Township. A large law enforcement presence is expected in the area around the school.
