Organization Structure

The Red Bank Police Department is under the command of Chief Stephen G. McCarthy and is located in the municipal complex at 90 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, New Jersey. It has forty-one sworn police officers including a chief, three captains, five lieutenants, seven sergeants, two detectives, and twenty-three patrolmen. There are also three civilian dispatchers, a records officer, and two senior secretaries.

The police department is divided into four divisions. They are the patrol, criminal investigation, traffic, and the service division.


The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) is a system designed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to have each police department in the United States report to them on eight different crimes. The FBI in turn records these statistics and disseminates them throughout the country.

Additionally, several other categories of statistics are listed below. The chart below compares the corresponding quarter of the previous year with the current quarter's statistics.

Specialized Projects

The Red Bank Police Department strives very much to be involved with the community it serves. We encourage citizens to contact the department not only during emergencies but also when problems arise. As an added feature, any organization wishing for a Red Bank Police Officer to give a speech or presentation contact the Chief's office (732)530-2710).

The police department follows many of the proponents of community policing while still maintaining incident based patrolling. An officer from the police department is part of the following meetings, most of which occur on a monthly basis:

  • Neighborhood Watch
  • Riverview Medical Center
  • School Officials
  • Special Events
  • Homeland Security
  • Human Relations Commission
  • Housing Authority
  • Prosecutor's Office for Community Justice

Other community policing ideas we have adopted include:

  • Six to seven months of bicycle patrol
  • Special officers on foot patrol
  • School walk through to meet with faculty and students
  • Park and Walk part of the regular patrol
  • Coordinating efforts with other departments such as fire, code enforcement and building departments
  • Working with the schools on security issues
  • Beginning stages of a Police Explorer Post with Fair Haven Police Department
  • Reserved spots at the County Police Academy for Youth Police Week in July
  • Participate in the "We Have A Little Emergency" (WHALE) program which is the installing of children's safety seats in vehicles
  • Reporting street light outages
