Specialty Assignments

Being able to work in a family-like atmosphere while experiencing the many different diverse tasks the profession of law enforcement has to offer is just one of the benefits of working for Newark PD. The Newark Police Department prides itself on the vast specialty assignments available to our personnel. 

Many of our officers have one or more specialty assignments or collateral duties. These assignments range from full-time assignments such as K9 Officer, Detective Bureau, Traffic Officer, Major Crimes Task Force Detective, School Resource Officer (SRO), to collateral duty assignments such as Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT), Crowd Management Team (CMT), Criminal Evidence Response Team (CERT), small Unmanned Aerial Systems (drone) Pilot and Honor Guard, just to name a few. 

A rewarding career full of memorable experiences awaits you.
