FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP — The next time you go shopping at the Freehold Raceway Mall, keep in mind: Big Brother will be watching.
License plate readers — which record the license plates of every car that enters and leaves the mall — have been installed over the entrances and exits to the Freehold mall as a counterterrorism measure. They are the first to be installed at a major shopping mall in the state.
Officials with the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office said the mall was selected because of its potential as a terrorist target.
“The Freehold Raceway Mall is one of the largest shopping malls in New Jersey,” said Cynthia Scott, spokeswoman for Sheriff Shaun Golden, in an email.
