Rotary Club OC-UT May 23rd Program
Ocean City Police Chief Campbell 
 
The Rotary Club of Ocean City - Upper Township in-person dinner meeting for Thursday, May 23, 2024, at 5:30 pm, will be held at the Somers Point Diner, 8 MacArthur Blvd, Somers Point.
The May 23rd program will be a presentation by Ocean City Police Chief William Campbell. 
The Police Chief is responsible for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the residents and visitors to the City of Ocean City. Chief William Campbell is the 13th Chief of Police to serve on Ocean City’s Police Department since its first in 1887. Chief Campbell started his career with the department as a Seasonal Class I Officer in the summer of 1989. He returned the following summer as a Class I Officer and then worked as a Seasonal Class II Officer during the summers of 1991 and 1992. 
Chief Campbell was hired as a full-time officer in August of 1994. He was promoted to Sergeant in March 2004, Lieutenant in May 2008, Captain in February 2018, Deputy Chief in November 2021 and Chief in November 2023. In Chief Campbell’s current role, he is responsible for a full-time sworn staff of 68 officers, 14 full-time civilian staff, and approximately 15 part-time civilian staff members. In addition to the 82 full-time employees, Chief Campbell employs approximately 60 additional Seasonal Law Enforcement Officers during the summer season, due to the influx in population. These officers usually worked from April to October each year.
Under Chief Campbell, the department is currently organized into three divisions to include: Patrol Operations Division, Special Services Division, and the Professional Standards Division. Providing top level Customer Service to both residents and visitors of Ocean City is a primary focus. Members of the department are also proud of the fact that Ocean City is the second agency within the state to achieve Accreditation status through the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police Association. The department has since been reaccredited five times.                              
Chief Campbell was raised in Lansdowne, PA and is a graduate of Upper Darby High School.  He continued his education and first attended Delaware County Community College where he earned an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice. Chief Campbell then attended Shippensburg University where he graduated with a Baccalaureate Degree in Criminal Justice and attended Fairleigh Dickinson University where he graduated with a Master's Degree in Administrative Science.                                           
Chief Campbell is a member of the Cape May County Chiefs of Police Association, New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, and the International Association of Chiefs of Police.                  
Chief Campbell resides in Egg Harbor Township with his wife Jill and son Brett.
