New Jersey State Police (New Jersey)


In April 1996, the Division opened an investigation into the New Jersey State Police (NJPD). In December 1999, the United States filed a complaint alleging a pattern or practice of unlawful traffic stops, searches and arrests, linked to inadequate policies and training, insufficient supervision, and inadequate systems of accountability. Simultaneously, the parties entered into a court- enforced consent decree, which terminated in October 2009.
