Welcome to the Sea Girt Police Department

Over a Century of Service – On July 2nd, 1917, shortly after the official incorporation of Sea Girt, Charles H. Roberts was appointed as the Borough Marshal marking the beginning of over 100 years of law enforcement in the Borough of Sea Girt.

The men and women of the Sea Girt Police Department are dedicated to the safety and security of the approximately 2,000 residents and countless visitors who flock to our beautiful southern Monmouth County beaches.  A top priority for the agency is preserving the quality of life enjoyed by the residents and visitors of the Borough of Sea Girt.  By exercising a strict adherence to our mission, we have been blessed with one of the lowest crime rates in Monmouth County.

The Sea Girt Police Department is under the command of Chief Justin E. Macko.  The Department staffs twelve full-time time police officers and is supplemented by part-time special officers who are assigned patrol or special duties as needed.
