Attorney General Guidance for Use of Force


“TO: All County Prosecutors

FROM: Gurbir S. Grewal, Attorney General

DATE: June 5, 2020

SUBJECT: Guidance Regarding Police Use of Force

Like all of you, I am still reeling from the footage of George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis. His death reminds us that our country has a long way to go—not only in healing our nation’s racial divides, but also in addressing the systemic and implicit biases that prevent all Americans from equally securing our country’s great promises. Now more than ever, we must redouble our commitment to building trust between law enforcement and the people we serve, especially those from historically marginalized communities.

Here in New Jersey, we are absolutely committed to a criminal justice system that is fair, just, and free of bias. I wholeheartedly agree with the statement that the County Prosecutors Association of New Jersey issued earlier this week, noting our “solemn responsibility” as law enforcement officers and reiterating our shared commitment to a culture of professionalism, accountability, and transparency.” ….

Prescription Drop Box


What is a Permanent Prescription Drop Box? Where are they Located?

With the growing concern for misuse of prescription medication and water quality, the first 24/7 free standing permanent drug disposal site in Bergen County was recently established at the Paramus Police Department. Other departments – Palisades Park, Park Ridge, River Vale, Leonia, Township of Washington and Ridgefield – have recently established the drop-off sites, with numerous other municipalities expressing interest.

A local initiative of the Bergen County Department of Health Services, Office of Alcohol and Drug Dependency’s County Municipal Alliance Program in cooperation with Consumer Affairs Division of the Attorney General’s office, this community based public health initiative highlights the problem of prescription drug abuse and enables Bergen County residents to contribute to the solution. This Box is monitored and maintained by the police department, offering a place to drop off expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, no questions asked. The metal, locked box is similar to a mailbox and once the unwanted pills are dropped in, they cannot be removed nor can anyone reach into/through the door.
