An individual who completed a course of fire prior to the issuance of the CCARE Protocol is deemed to have satisfied N.J.S.A. 2C:58-4(g)(2) if and only if the prior course included each of the following:

A minimum of 50 scored rounds per participant.

  • Minimum passing score of 80% using an FBI type Q target.
  • At least 10 rounds must be from the 15, 10, 7, 5 and 3 yard lines each, or if fewer rounds were fired from those distances, the remaining rounds must have been fired from greater distances.
  • The participant must demonstrate safe holstering and unholstering during the shooting course, which must include safely drawing the weapon from a secured holster before firing at each of the required distances and reholstering after completing the round.
  • The participant must demonstrate proficient and safe reloading during the shooting course.

Report Bias Safe Place Rainbow Badge

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.

Learn more about participating in SAFE PLACE. or email the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office or Long Branch Police Department.
