The Township of Hamilton Police Department is a community-oriented policing agency that is accredited by the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police. 

The Police Department is focused on solving quality of life issues before they develop into larger problems within the community.  The police department holds itself accountable for solving these problems through the CompStat process and monthly meetings.  Additionally, the police department ensures accountability to our community through a comprehensive Professional Standards review/audit function.

The police department is focused on being transparent through our regular reporting to our oversight agency, the Atlantic County Prosecutors Office, and the posting of the police department annual report on the department webpage.  These reports contain all internal affairs complaints, call volume by neighborhood, crime statistics by neighborhood, demographic break-down of motor vehicle stops and DWI stops, motor vehicle crash data, training and much more.

The police department also maintains a 911 communications center for police, fire and emergency medical services. 


The police Records Bureau is open Monday through Friday (8:30 to 4:30).


Through the use of this website, Nixle and Facebook we hope to keep the community better informed while continuing to deliver the quality service our community has come to expect.


The officers, communication staff and records staff are well trained, skilled and committed to do one thing:



to help people.
