Community Policing Belmar/Lake Como

The Borough of Belmar Police Department Community Policing Program has launched a new program that will include a more active role for our residents. We anticipate that this new platform will create more community involvement and enhance police officer relations,. By working together, we will address the quality of life issues and uphold order maintenance within our neighborhood.

Sump Pump Notice

As a reminder, it is ILLEGAL to have a sump pump connected to the Borough’s sewer system. Excess water flow through the sewers increases water bill rates for all residents and businesses. Recent rainfall events have highlighted this issue as water on certain streets was caused by sump pumps illegally connected to the sewer lines. As a result, the Borough will be increasing enforcement efforts. For more information please contact the Public Works department who can advise on how to ensure your sump pump is up to code. There is a grace period to make the necessary corrections before fines will be issued so please take this opportunity to ensure your property is compliant.

From the Belmar/Lake Como Office of Emergency Management

Severe weather  


High winds forecasted for tomorrow through the overnight hours: From JCP&L


This is a Code Red Message:


The Belmar and Lake Como Offices of Emergency Management are anticipating and preparing for winds capable of causing damage and power outages on December 24, and December 25, 2020.


Residents are reminded to report all power outages by calling the JCP&L contact center at 1-888-544-4877 or by utilizing the JCP&L website or text messaging options.  Please treat all downed wires as if they are live and report them immediately.  


The timing of the event poses additional challenges as many homes and lawns are decorated for the holiday season.  The high winds could dislodge some of these items, especially inflatable style decorations which could become airborne and become entangled in electrical lines and equipment, adding to the possibility of outages.


Please dial 911 in an emergency or contact the Belmar Police Department at 732-681-1700 for non-emergency calls.

Please take the necessary safety precautions.


Thank you and have a healthy, happy, and safe holiday.
