A Message From Chief Peter Fasilis

On behalf of the 140 men and women of the North Bergen Police Department, I would like to welcome you to the official website of the North Bergen Police Department. On May 1, 2020, I became the 10th police chief in this Department’s 113-year history. Today, our roles as police officers are almost unrecognizable from when I became a police officer in 1998. Our responsibilities have expanded greatly beyond the traditional role of policing. The success of a police department depends on its ability to recruit, develop, and field officers who not only understand their role as traditional police officers, but who also recognize their responsibility to their community. It is now more important than ever that police officers build trust within the communities they serve in order to encourage participation and lasting partnerships in an effort to reduce crime and improve the quality of life.

Chief Peter Fasilis The Township of North Bergen is an extremely diverse community which is represented and served by an equally diverse police department. This is because our ranks are filled with residents who come from the community that we serve. Our resident-only hiring policy plays an important role in ensuring that the NBPD is truly representative of our community. Our police officers are your neighbors, former students, patrons, coworkers, friends, and family.

In 2019, the North Bergen Police Department Responded to nearly 150,000 calls for service. Through the collaborative efforts of our police officers and our community, the Township of North Bergen is the 6th safest city in New Jersey and now the 23rd safest city in the nation. These milestones could not have been achievable without your cooperation and support.

The North Bergen Police Department is also an accredited law enforcement agency. Accreditation acknowledges our commitment to excellence in law enforcement by providing our community with the most proactive, efficient, effective, and constitutionally-sound law enforcement services based on best practices. Last year, the North Bergen Police Department renewed its accreditation status through the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police and exceeded in many accreditation standards representing a significant professional achievement for the Department.

I would like to thank Mayor Nicholas J. Sacco, Public Safety Commissioner Allen Pascual, and the entire Board of Commissioners for the Township of North Bergen, for their unwavering support of this agency. It is with their support that the North Bergen Police Department is properly trained, equipped, and educated to provide the highest quality of police services to the Township.

I am extremely proud of the work the brave men and women of this department do each and every day to guarantee the safety of the people of North Bergen. They are selfless in their dedication to their duties and I am truly fortunate to have the opportunity to lead such a tremendous group of individuals.

I look forward to continuing to work with members of our community to keep people safe and to listen to their voices on how best to serve and protect them. Our main priority has and will always be public safety and the quality of life for the Township of North Bergen.

Very truly yours,
Peter Fasilis
Chief of Police
