- About the Police
The Holmdel Township Police Department is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
It is the policy of the Holmdel Township Police to ensure equitable and fair treatment of applicants and employees in selection and promotion without regard to race, color, gender, creed, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, military status, or physical or mental disability that with reasonable accommodation does not significantly interfere with the ability to perform the essential functions of the job.
Pursuant to the December 2021 Attorney General Guideline “Promoting Diversity in Law Enforcement Recruiting and Hiring, the Holmdel Township Police Department is committed to doing all that we can to hiring staff who reflect the communities that we serve. See N.J.S.A.52:17B-4.10. 2019 Census Data indicates that Holmdel Townships population is 77% White, 1% Black, 4% Hispanic, and 18% Asian. As of December 31, 2021, the HTPD had 42 sworn Officers: 52% of HTPD officers reported their race and ethnicity to the department. Of those reporting 90% were white, 4% were black, 0% Hispanic and 4% were Asian/Pacific Islander. Although our Diversity numbers are higher than the 2019 census data for Black Officers, we are below the percentage for Asian and Hispanic Officers. In addition, we currently have zero female officers. Through job fares, such as the outreach event held by the Monmouth County Chiefs of Police at Brookdale Community College on March 8th, we will continue to strive to increase the number of Asian, Hispanic, and female officers in our department and will enhance our efforts to seek diverse applicants to join our office.
The department is governed by rules promulgated by the New Jersey Department of Personnel. As such we may only hire from the list that is supplied to us by the state. Individuals wishing to pursue a career with our Police Department must obtain a test application through the New Jersey Department of Personnel. Further information may be obtained by visiting the New Jersey State Civil Service Commission website.
