Point Boro Police Department


The primary function of any law enforcement agency is patrol. The officers out on patrol are on the front lines and they are the first responders to all calls for assistance. The Point Pleasant Police Department Uniformed Bureau consists of 18 patrol officers staffing 3 shifts led by a Commander holding the rank of Captain. Each individual shift is led by a Watch Commander holding the rank of Lieutenant. The Sergeants of the patrol unit and the patrol officers work an 8 1/2 hour day with steady shifts. The 3 Sergeants and 18 patrol officers are assigned to traditional patrol duties during their tour of duty. They may be required to answer requests for police services that could include a traffic collision, lost child, alarms, first aid calls, fights, loose dogs and robberies all in one tour of duty. In addition to their regular duties certain officers are trained in and may be called upon to perform dive duties with the Underwater Recovery Unit. A total of 21 officers and supervisors are also certified as NJ State Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT).

The Traffic Safety Unit is composed of 1 Lieutenant, and 17 Crossing Guards. They are responsible for the safe and efficient movement of all traffic and the safety of our children on the roadways of Point Pleasant.

The Traffic Safety Unit, Administrative Services Bureau and Detective Bureau all fall under the command of the Operations Commander Captain.
