Department Overview:

The Cresskill Police Department is an Accredited Law Enforcement agency located behind the Borough Hall off of Dogwood Lane. We are staffed by 24 Officers and 4 full time dispatchers. Out of the 24 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 Patrol Officers, supplemented by assistance from Captains, 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 out of town, 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.

Cresskill is approximately 10 miles from NYC with roughly 9,000 residents. Cresskill is bordered by Tenafly, Alpine, Demarest, Dumont and Bergenfield.
