Chief Robert J. Kowalewski

I would like to welcome you to the Point Pleasant Beach Police Department Web Site. The Point Pleasant Beach Police Department is a full service police department that serves 5,400 residents and approximately 2,000,000 visitors each year. We are a police department that embraces the philosophy of Community Policing in its daily operations and functions. Community Policing is based upon the partnerships between the police and the community, whereby they both share responsibility of identifying, reducing, eliminating and preventing problems that impact community safety. By working together, the police and the community can reduce the incidence of crime and improve the quality of life in the neighborhoods.

Point Pleasant Beach prides itself on being the “family community” where people enjoy living and visiting. By working together, Point Pleasant Beach can continue to be the family destination where residents and visitors feel safe and enjoy a high quality of life.

Please feel free to contact me personally or any other member of our team if we can assist you in any way.
