Bias crimes are taken very seriously by New Jersey law enforcement and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office. They are approached with an understanding that bias incidents require special handling by the law enforcement community. Further, suspected or confirmed bias crimes are investigated in a timely fashion, with special attention paid to victim assistance and community relations in order to reduce victim trauma and community tension or fear.

The Financial Crimes Unit is responsible for the investigation of major theft and fraud offenses committed in Bergen County. Generally, the Financial Crimes Unit limits its participation in theft and fraud investigations to cases involving a loss of $75,000 or more. Due to the complex and multi-jurisdictional nature of theft and fraud investigations, the squad often assists local municipalities in cases requiring special expertise.
The Gang Awareness presentations for Educators and Students are designed to raise awareness regarding topics such as what constitutes a gang and gang activity, the dangers and destructiveness that comes with living the "gang lifestyle", and the pitfalls of joining a gang and engaging in gang activity.

The presentation educates students on the dangers of experimentation with prescription medication, specifically Opiates, and how it corresponds directly with the increase in Heroin use by young people.

Students will leave with a practical, real-world education on the chilling effects Heroin can have on their lives and the importance of good decision-making.
