The Major Crime Unit is responsible to the Warren County Prosecutor, the Chief Law Enforcement Officer, for the investigation and criminal prosecution of homicides, potential homicides, crimes of violent nature, suicides, deaths by auto, police shootings, fatal fires, and other matters that may have significant impact on the public. In addition, members of the Major Crime Unit assist local, state and federal agencies on criminal matters in other jurisdictions.

The Major Crime Unit also includes the Serious Collision Analysis Response Team (S.C.A.R.T.) and the Insurance Fraud Unit. The purpose of the S.C.A.R.T. is to assist local police agencies in investigating motor vehicle accidents involving death or serious bodily injury, which may ultimately result in death.

It is the responsibility of the Insurance Fraud Unit to work in conjunction with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, along with insurance companies. Investigations involve the New Jersey Insurance Fraud Prevention Act (N.J.S.A. 17:33A-1 through 17:33A-15) as well as the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice (Title 2C) specifically focusing on the crimes of thefts, forgeries, fraudulent practices and falsification in official matters.
