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.
