Community Policing

The goal of the Community Policing Unit is to expand department’s ability to apply problem-solving techniques to chronic issues within the Township. The members of this unit will provide a greater ability to address resident concerns as well as police-identified issues. Squad members will have the mandate to address problems that could not otherwise be handled.

Within the Teaneck Police Department, “Community Policing” is a philosophy and practice that overlaps and underpins all operations by all personnel. In short, everything we do has the concept of community policing in mind. We serve the community with dignity and respect.
Often times police officers within the department do not have the flexibility to follow through on a problem from beginning to end. This squad has the ability to continue our efforts until a satisfactory conclusion is achieved by implementing problem-solving techniques to chronic issues within the Township.

In addition to the unit addressing chronic issues and quality of life concerns, members are also available for presentations to the general public as well as community organizations and community institutions in various topics such as those listed below. This Bureau can custom tailor and create new presentations as requested. Members of the squad can be reached at 201-837-8759 or via email at
