A Sign of the Times: Demarest Council Votes to Dissolve Police Department
Police and Law Enforcement News
Tuesday, December 4, 2012  10:31 p.m.


The governing body of Demarest Township has voted to dissolve their 13-officer police department and have their jurisdiction covered by the Bergen County Police Department.  Officials expect the move to save Demarest approximately $400,000 per year. 

The Demarest officers will be merged into the larger agency in contrast to what is happening across the state.

In 2010, voters in Interlaken opted to dissolve their 5-man department.  Those officers were not merged.

Today, Camden City is in the process of preparing to disband their police department.  A newly formed Camden County Metro Police Department will take over all policing functions.  While a percentage may be picked up by the new agency, all will first be laid off.

The Demarest merger is still in the early stages.
