Message From Sheriff Anthony Cureton

Sheriff deskRecently, I was made aware of certain derogatory social media posts that were made by former employees of the Bergen County Sheriff's Office, referencing a possible Borough of Leonia resident and our Asian American Community.  I want to make clear to the public and our officers, that the comments made by these individuals are not representative of the men and women of the Bergen County Sheriff's Office who have sworn to protect the people of Bergen County – all of the people of Bergen County. The Bergen County Sheriff's Office is committed to serving and protecting our community. We do not, under any circumstances, tolerate bias policing of ANY form, and any officer who violates this policy will be disciplined accordingly. Press Release From Sheriff Anthony Cureton

Governor Murphy Announces New Restrictions on Indoor Dining & Interstate Youth Sports

  • Indoor dining at restaurants, bars, clubs, and lounges is prohibited between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.
  • All bar side seating is prohibited.
  • Restaurants may place tables closer than 6 feet indoors if separated by barriers.
  • Individual fully-enclosed dining bubbles may be used for outdoor dining.
  • Outdoor dining, takeout, and delivery services may continue past 10:00 p.m.
  • Casinos are prohibited from serving food and drinks past 10:00 p.m., but may remain open for gaming.

The recent death of George Floyd and other events across our nation, have illuminated the importance of unbiased policing, accountability and community support from law enforcement. We ask that our residents do not paint ALL law enforcement with a broad brush, but remember the strides we have made together in our community. The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with police chiefs from across Bergen County, stand united with a message of hope, service, and commitment to our community.

최근 전직 버켄카운티 셰리프국 직원들이 소셜미디어를 통해 레오니아 주민 혹은 지역 한인사회를 상대로 인종적인 비하발언들을 게시했다는 소식을 접하였습니다. 저는 이번 기회를 통해 버겐카운티 주민 모두와 셰리프국 직원들에게 알립니다. 전직 버켄카운티 셰리프국 직원들이 한 말들은 버켄카운티의 주민들을 차별없이 지키고 보호하겠다고 맹세하고 헌신하는 모든 셰리프국 직원들을 대표하거나 그들의 의지를 반영하지 않습니다. 버켄카운티 셰리프국은 언제나 전 지역 사회 주민들을 위해 봉사하며 모두를 공정하게 보호하는데 최선을 다하고 있습니다. 또한 어떠한 경우의 편견 또는 차별적인 치안 업무는 용납되지 않을 것이며, 이러한 셰리프국의 정책과 규정을 위반하는 자는 엄정한 징계에 처해질 것입니다.
