COMMUNITY POLICING UNIT
The Community Policing Unit is responsible for coordinating and implementing Community Oriented Policing programs in conjunction with local police departments and the New Jersey State Police. These programs are designed to provide close interaction between law enforcement and the residents of Warren County to improve the quality of life.
The Unit is staffed by detective under the supervision of a superior officer and assistant prosecutor who also have other responsibilities.
The objective is to continually assess the need to create community policing programs based on the needs of the various communities. Most recently, the Community Policing Unit provided bicycles to Greenwich , Pohatcong, Liberty and White Townships and was instrumental in implementing bike patrols in those communities.
