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.


The mission of the Cresskill Police Department is to provide professional, quality police service to the Borough of Cresskill. We have been entrusted with the responsibility to maintain order, protect life and property and to improve the quality of life for all Cresskill residents, members of the community, and visitors. Our objective is to maintain a safe and secure environment for all by interacting with the community, emphasizing the control and prevention of crime and providing fair, impartial, efficient service to the public.
