Mayor names new Chief of the Cherry Hill Police Department


(Cherry Hill, N.J.) – Capt. William “Bud” Monaghan has been named the next Chief of the Cherry Hill Police Department, Mayor Chuck Cahn announced this morning.

Monaghan succeeds current Chief Rick DelCampo, who will retire on Dec. 31 after 36 years with the force and three and a half years leading the department as chief.

“It has been my privilege to work with and alongside Chief DelCampo,” Mayor Cahn said. “I want to thank him for his dedication to public service and his steadfast leadership.”

Monaghan, who will assume his new post on Jan. 1, joined the department as a patrol officer in 1995, and will be Cherry Hill’s tenth police chief. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Law and Justice from Rowan College and a Master’s Degree in Human Resources Training and Development from Seton Hall. He is also a graduate of the Northwestern School of Police Staff and Command. Monaghan rose through the Department as a Detective, Sergeant and Lieutenant before being promoted to Captain in 2011.

“We are excited about the future of our Police Department under Captain Monaghan’s leadership,” Mayor Cahn said. “Bud has the important combination of experience, knowledge and a high level of dedication that make him the ideal person for this job, and that have earned him respect and trust within the Department. Township Council and I look forward to working with him.”

Monaghan is currently head of the Department’s Administrative Division, where he has spent the last several years supervising, managing and coordinating police operations, including the Office of Emergency Management.

“I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to lead the men and women of the Cherry Hill Police Department,” Monaghan said. “I look forward to continuing to run a strong and efficient department and know that public safety is a top concern to every resident of Cherry Hill.”
