Message from the Police Chief

Welcome to the website of the Phillipsburg Police Department. I hope by visiting the department website you will learn more about the Phillipsburg Police Department and 37 professional police officers, 3 School Resource Officers, 1 fully trained special class II officers and a Senior Records Clerk who protect and serve the community. The Phillipsburg Police Department also provides police services to residents of the Borough of Alpha through a shared service agreement.


The purpose of this website is to provide members of the community with information regarding the different police services available to the citizens of both Phillipsburg and Alpha.


The Phillipsburg Police Department is committed to the community policing model. Officers are directly involved in problem-solving for members of the community. Each member of the Phillipsburg Police Department is assigned a specific area to provide community policing services to. Citizens of both Phillipsburg and the Borough of Alpha will have an officer assigned to their area of the town/borough.


We also take great pride in our partnerships in the community. We have longstanding relationships with Norwescap and the Phillipsburg School District to bring resources to our communities. We continue to strengthen these partnerships while looking for new opportunities.


As chief, I encourage members of the community to reach out to their community policing officer so we can work together in making the town of Phillipsburg and the Borough of Alpha a better place to live.



Chief Robert F Stettner
