Since I was elected Sheriff in 2004, I committed myself to enhancing the professionalism of the Office of Sheriff, increasing public safety and ensuring our residents get the best value possible from our efforts. The results of all our hard work have been twofold: we have delivered a consistent increase in the quality of the services we provide, while reducing costs. As a Sheriff, husband, father and resident, I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish on behalf of the people of Bergen County.
Assisted by stellar law enforcement professionals such as Executive Undersheriff Ralph Rivera, Jr., Undersheriff Sharon McDonald and Undersheriff Allen Ust, Chief Michael Bradley and Warden Robert Bigott, the professionalism of the Sheriff’s Office achieved an all-time high by achieving national accreditation from the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare and are expected to receive accreditation from the American Correctional Association and the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. BCSO will be the third Sheriff’s Office in the state to receive these high honors.
