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.

From the Desk of Chief Thomas Nielsen:

At approximately 11:00 P.M. on April 11, 2018, the Carlstadt Police received two 9-1-1 calls reporting a loud disturbance and possible fight occurring at 312 Washington Street. One of the callers further reported having seen one male party running across the street into a neighbor’s driveway / yard area. Sergeant Robert Biamonte and Officer Brian Monroe responded to the residence as Sergeant Jeff Perry and Officer William Zito from the East Rutherford Police Department responded to assist. While the ERPD officers were enroute, they observed an Hispanic male standing in the area of Jefferson Street and Hoboken Road who appeared distraught and excited. They made contact with this person and learned he person was a resident of 312 Washington Street, later identified as Angel Figueroa, and was the person seen running into his neighbor’s yard.

Meanwhile, Sgt Biamonte and Officer Monroe observed the front door of 312 Washington Street was opened so they announced themselves and entered in search of other persons in need of assistance. Once inside, they learned no one else was present within the first floor residence but also noted a strong odor of burnt and raw marijuana. They also observed marijuana and packaging materials in plain view. Figueroa was returned to the scene at which time he explained that he was sleeping on his couch when he heard a loud noise and upon waking up saw an Hispanic male standing over him who then began to assault him. He observed another Hispanic male inside the apartment but was not assaulted by this other person. Figueroa was able to escape the apartment through the front door and ran across the street. The two burglars left the area in an unknown direction.

Detectives from the Bureau of Criminal Investigation Unit. A Bergen County Sheriff’s K9 Officer also responded in an attempt to track the fleeing suspects but to no avail.

Figueroa was arrested for possession of more than 50 grams of marijuana, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was transported to headquarters for processing and later released on summonses with a court date scheduled for Monday, April 23, 2018 at the Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.

The Carlstadt Police Department wishes to thank the East Rutherford Police Department and Bergen County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance.
