A Message From Chief Robert J. Dowd
 

Welcome to the official website of the North Bergen Police Department, an Accredited Police Agency. On behalf of the 135 men and women of the North Bergen Police Department (NBPD), I am proud to report the Township of North Bergen has enjoyed a continued decline in crime which has led to recognition by two different national studies distinguishing North Bergen as the safest municipality in Hudson County, the 6th safest big city in New Jersey, and the 52nd safest big city in the United States of America.

Chief Robert J. Dowd The number one priority of the North Bergen Police Department is to foster a collective efficacy in our neighborhoods for the purpose of promoting the safety and stability of our community. We are committed to utilizing the latest technology, coupled with a philosophy of community policing, in an effort to provide the most efficient, effective and professional delivery of police services.

Members of the NBPD are working harder than ever before. In 2018, NBPD Officers responded to over 125,000 calls for police service, while at the same time, our street crime was indicative of some of the lowest numbers in our recorded history. Our police department focuses on improvements in the quality of life that affect our residents, businesses, and visitors. The NBPD has many specialized units created to focus on both the general and forensic investigation of crime as well as other issues within our township.

The dedicated men and women of the North Bergen Police Department work tirelessly in an effort to reduce crime in North Bergen and are encouraged to cultivate a partnership with the community we serve. We have employed the use of over 125 state of the art CCTV cameras that are monitored in real-time 24 hours a day. These CCTV cameras function as a force-multiplier and enable our patrol division to respond to incidents with a high degree of efficiency and effectiveness. Here in North Bergen you may see officers walking the beat, patrolling on motorcycles, bicycles, or in marked police cars. Other officers you may not see work in plain clothes or an undercover capacity. From time to time, we also have officers on loan to state and federal agencies as well as the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office Municipal Task Force.

Overall, the men and women of the North Bergen Police Department are dedicated to serving our community to the best of our ability. Many of our police officers, including myself, are not only employed by the township, but are also proud to call North Bergen our home.

It is with the full support of Mayor Nicholas J. Sacco, Public Safety Commissioner Allen Pascual, and the entire Board of Commissioners that the North Bergen Police Department is properly equipped, trained, and fully committed to ensuring the Township of North Bergen is a great place to live, work and visit. I encourage you to browse our web site for further information. Please feel free to follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. As always, you may contact us at directly 24 hours a day at (201) 392-2100.

Very truly yours,
Robert J. Dowd Robert J. Dowd.
