The Detective Bureau investigate crimes that have been reported to the Police, which
did not result in an immediate arrest, follow up on all cases that are
to be prosecuted and continue investigations prior to presenting cases
to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office. Each year numerous offenders
are arrested and prosecuted as a result of these investigations.
The Detectives operate in cooperation
with other Local, State, and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies, as well
as the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office, Narcotics Task Force, County
Police and Sheriff’s Departments to investigate a wide variety of
criminal offenses committed in Pompton Lakes or crimes committed in other
jurisdictions by persons who live, work or travel through the Borough.
This cooperation also allows for a vast network of regional Law
Enforcement services and investigative specialties to be available to
this community as needed.
Other services provided by the Detective
Bureau include criminal record checks, insurance inquiries, DMV records
checks, investigation of applicants for liquor licenses, solicitors’
permits and autocab permits. Assistance is offered to the Municipal
Court in gathering information necessary to prepare certain complaints
signed by private citizens. Detectives appear to
give testimony in many cases presented to the Grand Jury, Superior Court
of New Jersey and Municipal Courts.
Full cooperation exists between the
Detective Bureau and the Patrol Division, in conducting the necessary
police functions and investigations for the Department.
