GREEN BROOK, NJ - The Green Brook Police Department has hired a new officer who was sworn in at the Green Brook Township Committee meeting on December 18. Police Chief G. Christopher Kurz also presented awards at the meeting to officers who performed exceptional acts beyond the regular call of duty during the past year.  

Mayor Patrick Boccio performed a swearing-in ceremony for the department’s newest member, Officer Anthony Domanoski, who joins the Green Brook Police Department after earning a degree in Criminal Justice from Ocean County College and graduating from the Monmouth County Police Academy.

The annual Green Brook Police Department Awards Ceremony was then led by Chief  Kurz who stated “This ceremony is to recognize officers who’ve performed exceptional acts beyond the regular call of duty during the past year. Though I'm proud to say our officers continually strive to provide a high level of service for our community, there are times when the unexpected occurs and the officers are challenged to perform acts that save lives or otherwise keep people safe.”
