This quote was taken directly from the AG Guideline on Forfeiture.
From the AG Guideline on Bias Incidents:
The Office of
Bias Crime and Community Relations in the Division of Criminal
Justice shall be the office for the statewide investigation and
monitoring of bias incidents, and all law enforcement agencies shall
give them full cooperation. Whenever assistance is needed by local
and county law enforcement authorities regarding bias incidents, the
Office of Bias Crime and Community Relations shall be contacted.
That office will then coordinate appropriate additional resources
with the requesting agency.
Below is an excerpt from the AG Guideline on Domestic Violence:
In an emergency
situation, the restraining order or order of protection should be
presumed valid when presented to an officer. The primary
responsibility of the officer should be to ensure the safety of the
holder of the out-of-state order and, secondarily, to verify the
validity of the order.
1. If the named
defendant in the court order committed a criminal offense under New
Jersey law against the victim and appeared to have violated the
court order, the officer should arrest the defendant and sign the
criminal complaint against the defendant for the criminal offense.
The officer also should charge the defendant with contempt, N.J.S.A.
2. If the named
defendant committed no criminal offense but appears to be in
violation of the out-of-state no-contact order, the officer should
determine whether the order appears to be facially valid.
a. If the court
order appears to be facially valid, the officer should arrest the
defendant for violating the terms of the court order. The defendant
should be charged with contempt, N.J.S.A. 2C:29-9a.
This question probably fooled many, so donít feel bad if you answered it
incorrectly. Originally issued in 1988 and revised in 1993, the AG
Guideline on Drug Enforcement sets drug enforcement policy for New
Jersey. Below is an excerpt from the guideline:
Directive 2.1: Narcotics enforcement is designated to remain the
number one priority for every New Jersey law enforcement agency.
This rule can actually be found in 2C. See below:
Persons accused of minor offenses
No person charged
with a crime of the fourth degree, a disorderly persons offense or a
petty disorderly persons offense shall be required to deposit bail
in an amount exceeding $2,500.00, unless the court finds that the
person presents a serious threat to the physical safety of potential
evidence or of persons involved in circumstances surrounding the
alleged offense or unless the court finds bail of that amount will
not reasonably assure the appearance of the defendant as required.
The court may for good cause shown impose a higher bail; the court
shall specifically place on the record its reasons for imposing bail
in an amount exceeding $2,500.00.
