Mission Statement

The mission of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office is to commit its resources, in partnership with the law enforcement community and citizens of Bergen County, to promote a safe and secure environment for the residents of Bergen County while maintaining the highest law enforcement standards. The members of this office will effectively and efficiently investigate and prosecute criminal offenders, fairly, impartially, and justly. We will ensure and respect the rights of individual victims of crime. In addition to conducting its own proactive investigations, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office maintains specialized squads that are available to assist the municipal departments in the investigation of crimes calling for increased personnel, specialized equipment, technical know-how or highly specialized training. Such crimes include arson, homicide, sex crimes, drug trafficking, traditional organized crime, domestic violence, insurance fraud and most recently, cyber crimes. These squads give each municipality the ability to bring additional resources to bear when presented with particularly challenging cases or particularly dangerous offenders.
