Special Events


NJOHSP compiles a statewide list of special events to be distributed to all law enforcement agencies to provide situational awareness and to assist in local planning requirements. Special events include any event that attracts large numbers of participants and spectators in both a public and/or private venue. Examples include: concerts, marathons, firework displays, community celebrations, visits by VIPs, sporting events, holiday gatherings, etc.

We are requesting your assistance to help compile the statewide directory. Officials in any town can assist in keeping New Jersey prepared by completing an online “Special Events Submission Form” which can be found below.

A comprehensive and current list of special events adds to the overall resilience of every community and helps police and NJOHSP better protect the people of New Jersey.
