County unveils new public safety dashboard with real-time beach conditions, safety info

Long Branch Beach

“Monmouth County worked collaboratively with Watchtower Solutions to become the first county in the United States to unveil the Beach Public Safety Dashboard and we are excited to share it with our residents and visitors,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Department of Tourism. “The introduction of the Dashboard, in collaboration with and Watchtower Digital Command Center, is sure to provide our County’s beach visitors a better experience for their trips to Monmouth County.”

The digital dashboard uses real-time data acquired through call for service requests to populate information such as frequency and location of marine life activity; water safety conditions, including reported rip current locations and wave height; pertinent weather details, including emergency weather events; frequently asked questions; and tower locations and directions. In addition to the significant amount of information already included on, beach parking conditions and capacity will be added in the future.

I’ve had my dream job of waking up with all the great listeners and members of Brookdale Public Radio since January 3, 2005. Prior to this job, I began my career in radio at NJ 101.5 FM as a producer. From there, I took time off from radio to do other things. (including becoming a mom!)
