Welcome to the official website of the Bergenfield Police Department. I encourage you to peruse the information listed here regarding our services, programs and crime updates. Also available are contacts with phone numbers and email addresses so you are able to contact us or be directed to the appropriate Division. Additionally, I encourage our residents to sign up for our NIXLE messages, follow us on TWITTER @bergenfieldnjpd and “like” us on FACEBOOK for the most up-to-date information on community news, road closures or conditions, and emergency alerts.
Our mission as a department is to serve and protect the public – including all residential, commercial and visiting neighbors of Bergenfield. The men and women of our department – both sworn and civilian – are dedicated to protecting the life and property of all of our residents, while also keeping order, resolving conflict and investigating and charging those in violation of the law.
As a Bergenfield police officer for more than 25 years, I have seen many changes in this line of work, particularly in technology. Today, we are able to utilize technology to analyze and store crime data and statistics in a way we never could before. The records management systems we operate today allow us to retrieve data quickly and be able to analyze issues and be proactive in addressing them.
I am dedicated to continuing to advance our department, technologically, while being mindful of budgetary constraints plaguing local municipalities today.
As chief of police, I have continued the work of all previous police administrations and maintain the forward motion of this force. I am also dedicated to ensuring the integrity of this department.
The men and women of our department continue to keep our community safe and maintain a low crime rate – for which they are to be commended. Public safety has always been at the heart of our mission as a police department, and that is something that will never change.
Chief Michael T. Carr
