Launched in June 2019 under the guidance of Sheriff Anthony Cureton, in partnership with the Bergen County Police Chief’s Association, the Bergen County Fugitive Task Force is charged with locating and arresting individuals who have outstanding criminal warrants and are fugitives from justice from Bergen County Superior Court. The task force’s mission is not only to locate fugitives from justice, but also to develop further intelligence regarding those who are evading Bergen County Superior Court Criminal Division.
Task Force operations are run several times a year and utilize assistance from nearly twenty local and regional agencies in Bergen County. In 2019, the task force led to 27 arrests.
