Welcome to the Hackensack Police Department
Hackensack is a unique and diverse city on the verge of a Renaissance. We are home to the Bergen County Judiciary, County Government, world-renowned medical center and nationally-recognized educational institutions. The city is conveniently situated along Routes 4, 17 and 80 and is also served by two NJ Transit train stations providing frequent service to NYC via Hoboken and Secaucus. Our downtown bus transfer station provides access to virtually anywhere. Our history dates back to the 1600’s and General Washington was briefly headquartered here during his famous 1776 Retreat. 45,000 people are proud to call Hackensack home.
The Hackensack Police Department stands in solidarity with our community and with the people across the country over the senseless death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in Minnesota. The excessive and criminal acts of the Minneapolis officers are in no way a reflection of our agency, nor is it a reflection of law enforcement in general.
Our priority is the safety of all of our community members regardless of age, race, religion, or sexual orientation. Our goal continues to focus on serving the community. On behalf of the department, our message to the public is this: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” –Martin Luther King, Jr.
