The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office Detective Unit has grown to become a rapid and reliable source of manpower, information, and technical assistance to every law enforcement agency in Bergen County, as well as the surrounding region. Sheriff's Detectives are routinely assigned to assist local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in numerous investigative areas including fugitive apprehension, missing person cases, internal affairs investigations, monitoring gang activity and conducting ‘Next of Kin’ background investigations for the Surrogate Court Judge.
The Investigations Squad is responsible for investigating all incidents within the Bergen County Justice Complex, the Bergen County Jail, Bergen County Probation, and the Bergen New Bridge Medical Center Prisoner “D-1” Unit. Investigations Detectives also conduct Criminal Investigations within the County of Bergen and work with other law enforcement agencies - local, state and federal - by providing personnel and/or resources. Additionally, the Investigations Squad conducts all background investigations for sworn and civilian employees of the Sheriff’s Office.
