Atlantic Highlands is a small Victorian town on the New Jersey shore overlooking lower New York Bay, with Manhattan in the distance. Its hills include the highest point on the eastern seaboard south of Maine.

Many of Atlantic Highlands' Victorian homes have been preserved and restored, adding to the charm of small-town living and providing interesting walking tours in the historic district.

A message from the Atlantic Highlands Police Department:

When a crisis affects the Borough of Atlantic Highlands, Municipal and Emergency Management Officials must be able to reach residents instantly with warnings, information, and updates. In order to ensure that residents can be contacted quickly and effectively, the Borough of Atlantic Highlands uses Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as its Emergency Notification service provider.

Swift911 in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls (along with an email and/or text if you desire) to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. All the calls that you receive will have the caller ID listed as Borough of Atlantic Highlands or AHNJ for text messages.

Whether residents need to be informed of fire hydrant testing, a water main break, approaching storm, State emergencies, or other crisis, the emergency notification system is the most efficient way to reach our residents with news.
