US Department of Defense Police

Military Ocean Terminal, Bayonne, New Jersey

a brief look

On Sept 30th, 1999, the gates of the Military Ocean Terminal in Bayonne came to a close. The Military Ocean Terminal (MOT), located in the NY Harbor, was accessable by land, sea, rail and air. It was one day closer to Europe, and housed the best longshoremen on the east coast. It has the largest drydock on the east coast, visited by many ships to include the Queen Elizabeth II (QE2 as it's known to this world) and is in the World Book of Records. The MOT had it's own Medical Clinics located at building 52B and building 42, 4th floor, their own Fire Department and their their own Police Department. At one time, the MOT employed over 3000 people and had as many as 2000 visitors a day who wanted to visit the Federal Records Center, ship their cars, join the military, use the PX, do their banking or use the NYPOE Federal Credit Union, play sports like putt-putt, softball, basketball, wrestling, tennis, or to enjoy music, drink and dancing at the MOTBY Community Club, and later, the Harbor View Club. The MOT was also home to Military members of the Navy and the Army who lived in the barracks located in building 72 on C Street, later renamed Constitution Ave. And located at the foot of Constitution Ave was Goldsboro Village, which had 9 apartment buildings and housed 152 military families from not only around the United States, but around the world. And for years, the Navy docked the USN Fiske on the MOT's North Pier.

So many diferent types of people and activities on this 437 acres of dry land. A small scale city in it's own right. Things did not always go right in this civilian and military comunity. It was the job of the Department of Defense Police to keep the peace and to make sure things were right.

This Web Site is dedicated to the men and women of the Ocean Terminal's Police Department who came here and later moved on, retired, closed the gates for the last time, and for those Officers who joined their brother and sister officers on the Honor Rolls.
