Chief Wright started his police career in Point Pleasant Borough in 1984 as a Special Officer assigned to dispatch duties. He then was hired in Point Pleasant Beach as a Class II Special officer in 1985. In 1987, he was hired as a full time dispatcher for Point Pleasant Borough. Then in 1989, he was hired here in Mantoloking as a Patrolman. In 2004, he was promoted to Sergeant. In January 2007, he was promoted to Chief of Police.
The Mantoloking Police Dept. was established in 1911. At that time, we had one police officer, who was Chief J. Harrison “Hat” Herbert. He was designated as Badge # 1. Since that time, we have grown to 7 full-time officers including the Chief’s position.
We are a 24-hour Police Dept. that is ready to provide the same services that any larger police dept. can. We patrol a 2.2-mile stretch of Route 35 in Ocean County, NJ, and our widest point is less than a half mile. The Atlantic Ocean and the Barnegat Bay surround us. We have a boat patrol that patrols the Barnegat Bay between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
We also offer a “We Care” system that allows residents to give us contact, medical, and key information for their home that is used to help us help you. In addition we also have a Reverse 911 system that allows us to notify residents of an emergency or other significant event. Please note that if you do not own a home in the Borough of Mantoloking, your registration will not be validated, and you will not receive phone calls or email updates. Please use the links below to register with either or both of these systems
If you walk into headquarters and there is no one at the front desk, please use the pay phone in the lobby and call (732) 892-0832. Ask the dispatcher to send an officer to headquarters to assist you.
Call 911 for emergencies only!
Please remember that if you see something you suspect

insignificant you think it is, CALL US.
A delay in a report may result in a failure to save a life or
solve a crime.
