About the Brookdale Police
The College Police Department operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is a unique law enforcement agency designed specifically to serve the needs of the College community. The women and men of the Brookdale Police Department have the responsibility of protecting life and property and the prevention and detection of crime on this campus. Brookdale police officers receive the same Police Academy training and have the same authority as any New Jersey municipal police officer. They have full arrest powers and enforce both traffic and criminal statutes, as well as College policies and regulations. It is the goal of the Brookdale Police Department to serve equally all members of the College community without regard to race, color, creed, ethnicity, sex, national origin, age, religion, veteran’s status, marital status, disability or sexual orientation.
Brookdale Police maintain mobile, bicycle, and foot patrols that cover the entire campus. They are always in radio contact with police headquarters and quickly respond to emergency situations and calls for assistance. In addition to uniformed patrol personnel, the Police Department maintains an investigative division, which provides crime prevention services, traffic accident investigations, and administrative support.
At Brookdale`s Higher Education Centers, Security Officers are on duty during the times classes are in session and maintain security at all of our Centers, i.e., Hazlet, Long Branch, Freehold, Wall and Neptune. They are uniformed and remain visible at all times. These officers do not have police powers, but are available in case of need and will contact their respective municipal departments for problems that require police action. They are supervised by the Brookdale Police Department, and all Brookdale Community College regulations apply.
Brookdale Police officers are available to make presentations to students, faculty, and staff upon request.
