DIVISION OF POLICE

JCPD Graduation PhotoThe history of the Jersey City Police Department dates back to 1829, and today consists of nearly 975 uniformed officers, 200 crossing guards, and 200+ civilian employees dedicated to the safety of Jersey City's residents and visitors.  The recent officer hirings have not only helped with increasing police presence and therefore the deterrence, detection and solving of crimes, but also the fostering of active relationships between police and the community, opening lines of communication, and recognizing citizens as a crucial component in combating crime.
