Ocean County Special Needs Registry

The Ocean County Special Needs Registry is a voluntary service open to all citizens with disabilities who reside, attend school or are employed in Ocean County. The registry was created to help police officers and other emergency service personnel to better assist residents with special needs in the event of an emergency by providing those first responders with vital information regarding a registrant’s disability, emergency contact information, a physical description and current photograph of the registrant.
NOTE: All Individuals who are of legal age (where there is no power of attorney or guardianship) can only register themselves.
