The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office provides command and coordination of the Middlesex County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) Police Bureau. Police Bureau detectives are responsible for managing and coordinating the county-wide public safety response to any significant emergency, natural disaster, major storm, or other critical incident. During such events, the Police Bureau activates and acts as the hub for coordinating law enforcement resources, personnel, equipment, and services throughout the county as needed.
In addition, the Middlesex County Police Auxiliary Academy falls under the direct responsibility of the Police Bureau. All staffing, curriculum, rules and regulations for the 14 week course (140 hours) are coordinated and approved by the bureau chief under the direction of the Middlesex County Coordinator of Emergency Management. Select members of the bureau are also appointed to serve on the Middlesex County Police Auxiliary Advisory Committee which is charged with making recommendations for near and long range planning for the training and utilization of police auxiliary members in Middlesex County.
