Cresskill Police Department
The Cresskill Police Department is an Accredited Law Enforcement agency located behind the Borough Hall off of Dogwood Lane. We are staffed by 22 Officers and 4 full time dispatchers. Out of the 22 Officers, 2 are assigned to the detective bureau, 1 is assigned to the juvenile detective bureau, and 1 is assigned to the traffic bureau. There are 4 rotating road patrol squads each consisting of a road Sergeant and Patrolmen, supplemented by assistance from Lieutenants, Detectives, and Traffic. We are an "in house" dispatched department, meaning when you call our desk at 201-568-1400, a dispatcher actually sitting in our headquarters, not a large call center, will take your call. Our four full time dispatchers are also supplemented by per-diem dispatchers when the need arises. Our department also has class 1 Special Law Enforcement Officers who assist us with large events and crowd control.
