Bergen County Seeks Vote on Police Merger

The Bergen County freeholder board has approved a referendum on whether to merge the county police with
the sheriff’s department.

The Record of Woodland Park reports that the board voted 4-2 Friday to put the question on the November 6 ballot in a non-binding referendum.

They also approved an ordinance that would dissolve the Bergen County police. That ordinance also passed by a 4-2 vote.

Some support the idea of consolidating the departments, which cover similar territory.

Others, including some police union members, oppose it.
