The Monmouth County Sheriff ‘s Office Situational Training and Response Simulator, also known as the STARS Facility, located in Freehold, is a premiere training facility used by our public safety partners in Monmouth County and throughout the State of New Jersey.

Officers have to be prepared for an active-shooter scenario.  In Monmouth County, law enforcement officers can now train inside the youth correctional building turned training complex complete with an active-shooter simulator, hallways that fill with smoke and strobe lights, jail cells where unruly prisoners can wreak havoc and a K-9 agility course.

The Situational Training And Response Simulator, STARS, facility located on Dutch Lane Road in Freehold, is an initiative with the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Monmouth County Police Academy, the Monmouth County Police Chiefs Association, the Monmouth County Fire Marshal’s Office and the Monmouth County EMS Task Force.
