The bureau is comprised of highly trained detectives who investigate cases involving juveniles, families and gangs. Additionally, a uniformed detective is assigned to Teaneck High School as the School Resource Officer.

Juvenile detectives investigate cases of child abuse, sexual abuse, missing and exploited children, graffiti, bicycle theft, family crisis, bias incidents, violations of Megan's Law, as well as, crimes that occur on school property.

Members of the Juvenile Bureau maintain close relationships and work collaboratively with our public and private schools to provide safe and secure learning environments.  Presentations are made to students, parents, teachers and others on a wide range of topics that include the perils of gangs, alcohol and drug abuse.
