Criminal Records

New Jersey law empowers the State Police to gather information about sex offenders living in the state and make the information available to the public. Pursuant to the provisions of Section 2C: 7 – 12 and 19 of the New Jersey Code, the State Police makes the New Jersey Sex Offender Registry available online. Search this database for sex offenders by name, email address, and zip code. Use it to find sex offenders living in different parts of Bergen County by searching with street addresses. The search tool also provides ways of searching for non-compliant and incarcerated offenders.

The Corrections Division of the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for maintaining inmate and jail records for the county. In addition to the various rehabilitative programs it runs at the County Jail, this office also provides inmate information such as visitation rules, visiting hours, and bail information. Its Inmate Lookup Tool is a handy resource for locating incarcerated individuals by name or booking number.

Court Records

The court in Bergen County occupies the Justice Center located at 10, Main Street, Hackensack, NJ. Its records are available online on the New Jersey Courts Web Access Portal. Different divisions of the court have their records on different parts of the online system. For civil case documents, search in the eCourt Civil Case Jacket. Criminal case records are found in the Convictions and Judgements sections. Other court records available from the Web Access portal include Judgement Liens and Tax Court Cases.
