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 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 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.

About the Community:

Cresskill is a 2 square mile mostly residential community that has 2 elementary schools and a combination Middle School/High School. Cresskill is approximately 10 miles from NYC with roughly 9,000 residents. Cresskill is bordered by Tenafly, Alpine, Demarest, Dumont and Bergenfield. Cresskill is a quiet community with a small business district, excellent recreational facilities and multiple houses of worship.
