The Barrier Free Advisory Committee of Bergenfield has established a Residential Special Needs Assistance Registry for residents who may require special assistance during an emergency. The information will be entered into the Police Department database.
The Monmouth University Polling Institute and Graduate Program in Public Policy recently announced the results of their New Jersey E-Government Municipal Website Evaluation. The project assessed 540 municipal websites in New Jersey for both content and ease of use.
The Borough of Bergenfield's website was ranked in the top 20 as one of the best municipal websites.
Neighborhoodscout recently ranked Bergenfield, New Jersey, as the 2nd safest in the nation on their list of the 100 safest cities in America with 25,000 or more people.
Neighborhoodscout based their rankings on the total number of property and violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Crimes include burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, murder, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. Data used for this research consisted of 1) the number of total crimes reported to the FBI to have occurred in each city, and 2) the population of each city.
