Welcome to the Public Safety website.
As the Burlington County Public Safety Director, I am pleased to share information about the services we provide for you.

Our Communications Center is a consolidated countywide operation handling 9-1-1 emergency calls, police, fire, and emergency medical dispatch; and acts as a point of contact after hours for all County agencies.

The Emergency Management's Emergency Operations Center (EOC), handles large scale or long term emergencies of natural or manmade causes.

The office of Fire Marshal investigates fires.

The Emergency Services Training Center provides training to Firefighters, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's) and many other government agencies.

The Forensic Laboratory provides controlled substance analysis for the County Police Agencies.

The Firearms Range and Simulator are used by the Burlington County Police Agencies as well as State and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies to train and qualify with firearms.

You will find helpful information about handling emergencies at this site, the services we provide, and what you can do to help us help you. 

John Drinkard, Director of Public Safety
