News & Announcements

Important information and updates from the Bergenfield Police Department.

Sunday, May 18th


The Bergenfield Police Department thanks all those who participated in the annual Bike with a Cop event this past Sunday.  The event included refreshments and free helmets to the first fifty registrants. At the conclusion of the bike ride, the participants were excited to see if their raffle ticket was picked for one of seven bicycles, which were generously donated by the Borough of Bergenfield, the Bergenfield PBA, The Dominoes Club, Tony’s Pizza, and Jamis Bicycles.

This year, as a token of our appreciation, the Bergenfield Police Department presented a plaque to Christopher Tierno of Urban Cycle Outfitters for generously donating his time and expertise in assisting riders with bicycle maintenance.

We look forward to seeing more smiling faces and bringing the commUNITY together with more events this year!

 We are pleased to announce that all our officers are now equipped with body worn cameras, in accordance with the NJ Attorney General's Body Worn Camera Policy Directive 2021-5, Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Guidance and the Bergenfield Police Department's Body Worn Camera Policy.

Body worn cameras (BWC) provide an accurate and unbiased recorded account of an incident.  These cameras will strengthen the rtust between the police and the public while maintaining accountability and transparency.  They will be worn by uniformed and plainclothes officers on the center of the officer's chest.

Below are pictures of Sgt. Witty and Officer Brooks wearing the WatchGuard V300 cameras showing their mounting locations.



The Borough will be offering COVID-19 Moderna vaccines and boosters at Conlon Hall on Wednesday, October 27, between 3-7pm. Vaccines will be administered on a first come/first served basis. If you are getting a second dose or booster dose of the vaccine, please remember to bring your vaccination card. Conlon Hall is located at 18 N. William St. in Bergenfield. Everyone entering Conlon Hall must wear a mask.


On Friday, June 25th, Chief Tristan Ramos took ownership of his new office and was sworn in by Mayor Amatorio and Chief Rabboh.  After a tour of our Municipal Building, we headed to the Bergen County Court House where Chief Tristan Ramos met Bergen County Surrogate Judge Dressler, BCPO Prosecutor Musella, BCSO Chaplain Jackson, BCSO Sheriff Cureton, Detectives of BCPO Major Crimes, and the other Chiefs.  We then ended our day with a luncheon at Van Saun County Park.

We were honored to be apart of this great commUNITY event and enjoyed our time under the direction of Chief Tristan Ramos.
