Welcome From the Chief

Welcome to the Monmouth University Police Department’s website. I am confident that you will find the information contained on this site to be very helpful.

The Monmouth University Police Department is an armed, fully commissioned police force operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The department consists of 19 full-time officers and detectives, as well as safety officers, dispatchers, and traffic attendants. University police officers patrol the campus and off-campus residential facilities in marked patrol units and on foot.

One of the highest priorities of the Police Department is to provide a safe and secure campus, conducive to the learning environment. In keeping with this theme, all officers routinely attend training in current law enforcement concerns, first aid, and diversity training.

Please take the time to explore our site to obtain valuable information concerning campus safety. Although the University is located in a safe and secure suburban area at the Jersey Shore, individual safety is everyone’s concern.

If you have any questions regarding the Police Department or website, or if I can be of any assistance to you, please feel free to contact me at 732-571-4444.
