About The Bergen County Sheriff's Office 
 
The Bergen County Sheriff's Office is the largest law enforcement agency in Bergen County. Comprised of more than 500 dedicated personnel, the Office's responsibilities include a broad range of services and functions which assist the public, augment the county's municipal police departments and safeguard Bergen's judicial proceedings. With a population larger than that of many states, safeguarding the almost 1 million residents of Bergen County is a full-time job. 

The Sheriff's Office is a 24-hour operation staffed by some of the best and most well-trained officers and civilians working in the field of law enforcement today. The Sheriff's Office is tasked with maintaining order and security at the Bergen County Justice Center, providing for the care and custody of more than 1,000 inmates and detainees at the Bergen County Jail and assisting the county's 68 municipal police departments by providing advanced forensic procedures through its Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Additionally, the Office is responsible for process serving, writs, court orders, foreclosures and court executions.


I must first start by thanking the residents of Bergen County who have granted me this incredible opportunity – I promise you that I take this responsibility with a great sense of pride and duty. Throughout my career in law enforcement, I have developed a skill set that I believe will serve the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office well. I know how to manage budgets without jeopardizing safety – quality service does not have to come with an outrageous price tag.

In these tough economic times, it is important that we concentrate on performing our duties as efficiently as possible. As your Sheriff I will continue to take steps toward streamlining our budget and performing the job core functions of the department – security of the courts and jail, the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) and the service of processes within the County of Bergen.
