The Borough of Wildwood Crest is a small shore community located in Cape May County, New Jersey, situated between Victorian Cape May and Wildwood City. Wildwood Crest is mostly residential with a large motel business district.
The Wildwood Crest Police Department protects 2.7 square miles and is home to nearly 4,000 year round residents.  The population number swells to over 100,000 on any given weekend from Memorial Day to Labor Day. 

The Wildwood Crest Police Department participates in the New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Program,  which is a voluntary state program developed by the New Jersey Association of Chiefs of Police and is modeled after the CALEA national program. The accreditation program requires compliance with a series of professional standards designed specifically for New Jersey law enforcement agencies. The program promotes the best practices in law enforcement. The department was initially accredited in 2011 and renews every three years.

In October of 2019, a team of assessors from the New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (NJLEAC) conducted on onsite evaluation of the department’s policies and procedures, management, operations and support services. The department had to comply with 112 standards in order to be re-accredited. The assessment assessors reviewed written materials, interviewed individuals, and visited offices and other areas where compliance can be witnessed. Wildwood Crest Police Department is passed the accreditation standards and received the accreditation the same month. Lieutenant Denise Holt is the Accreditation Manager.
