He is tasked with overseeing the safety and security of the residents in Barnegat in Southern Ocean County and on Friday January 24, Police Chief Keith Germain will join us for Townsquare Media Jersey Shore's 3rd episode of 'Ask The Chief'.

Our 'Ask The Chief' show is an opportunity for Jersey Shore Police Chiefs to answer questions submitted by residents as well as by our newsroom and discuss current events, safety procedures, community programs and more.

Toms River Police Chief Mitch Little joined us for episode 1 and he was followed by Brick Police Chief James Riccio in episode 2, both of which you can re-watch at the bottom of the page.

Chief Germain most recently graduated from the 278th session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia in December.

“The ability to exchange ideas and learn from the top 1% of law enforcement leaders across the globe was invaluable," Chief Germain said in a previous statement. “In Quantico, you’re spending 16 hours a day with the best that this profession has to offer. Over the course of hundreds of hours of interaction and conversation, you glean insight into how agencies globally are dealing with the contemporary challenges that we face collectively as a profession. You get a view of what has worked, what hasn't worked, and great ideas that we can apply to our mission as an agency here in Barnegat.”

Chief Germain will be discussing a variety of topics in our discussion on 'Ask The Chief' and we are taking your question submissions to bring up on the show which will be produced in our newsroom and posted on our Facebook page and YouTube channel following production.

You can ask questions on an issue you see in the community, inquire about any concerns on your mind, ask something that perhaps you didn't know about a police officer and more.

To submit a question or comment before the January 24 show, you can message us on Facebook or email vin.ebenau@townsquaremedia.com and our news team will compile all the questions.
