Welcome to the Carlstadt Police Department web site

This site is designed to give a brief history and understanding of your police department.

Since the Borough of Carlstadt was founded in June of 1894, there has always been a need for police to keep the peace. Like any other organization in America, there is always someone in charge and the Carlstadt Police Department is no different. In 1907, Charles Schmidt was the first police chief appointed by the borough. Since this time there have been many changes in technology and laws that have helped to shape the police department into what it has become today, and we will continue to grow and expand our skills under our current Chief, Thomas Nielsen.

We are more than the traditional police department. In addition to our patrol unit, we also have officers a part of the following: New Jersey Rapid Deployment Force, the Bergen County Regional SWAT Team, the Bergen County Rapid Deployment Team and the Bergen County Computer Crimes Unit.

On Friday, January 6, 2017 Victor Abreu of East Rutherford, NJ was arrested for violations of receiving stolen property and possession of burglary tools. At approximately 09:40 am, headquarters received a report of a suspicious male dumping the contents of several purses onto the ground in the area of Division Avenue near Route 17 South.

While officers were responding, it was further reported the suspicious male had just driven away in a red colored Nissan Altima bearing PA registration and was heading towards Division Ave. Lieutenant Thomas Negro, along with Officers James Ross and Jonathan Rood, observed the suspect vehicle and detained it. The driver was identified as Victor Abreu and after further investigation the officers learned that Abreu was in possession of various items he obtained from burglarizing motor vehicles in Fair Lawn and other locations in New Jersey.

In addition to the purses, Abreu was in possession of a laptop computer, an iPhone 6S, credit cards bearing names of different names, nearly 100 gift cards, three female-style wallets and a plastic bag that contained various receipts and a personal check that did not bear his name.

The department was able to contact some owners of the recovered property and attempting to notify the remaining owners. Abreu was issued a criminal summons and court appearance for January 23, 2017 in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack. He was then turned over to Fair Lawn Police detectives regarding the burglaries he had committed in their jurisdiction.
