Troop B Road Stations

Troop "B", with its headquarters in Totowa, serves the northern geographical portion of the state, covering 2,807 square miles, with a population of approximately five million people. This Troop consists of nine stations: Hope, Netcong, Perryville, Somerville, Sussex, Totowa-Sub Station, Washington, a Criminal Investigations Office, and four Tactical Patrol Units covering the 10 counties in northern New Jersey.

The Metro North Station and Strategic Investigations Unit in Irvington establishes a partnership with the local law enforcement, county prosecutor's offices, county sheriff's offices, other state agencies, community and faith based groups, clergy alliance, political leaders and the private sector in an effort to address quality of life and crime issues identified by the citizens of the assigned area and its police department.

Troop "B" has the responsibility of providing full police coverage to 29 municipalities, part time coverage to six municipalities, as well as patrolling 218 miles of the 5 Interstate Highways that traverse North Jersey; I-78, I-80, I-95, I-280 and I-287, as well as State Highway 24, a 12-mile state highway, connecting I-287 and I-78 through Morris, Essex, Union and Somerset Counties.

Troop "B" personnel are requested by numerous Federal, County and Municipal law enforcement agencies to assist with various tasks. Some of these requests are; crisis / hostage negotiations, VIP and high profile prisoner escorts and protection, conducting tactical entries of fortified structures for the purpose of executing felony arrest and or search warrants.

The Troop is also called upon to conduct crowd and traffic control at major events such as the Meadowlands Sports Complex. In an effort to prevent the possibility of a catastrophic incident at a major sporting venue, Troop "B" Operations has worked in conjunction with the N.J. Sports and Exposition Authority and State Police Sports Complex Unit by developing a security assessment plan at the Meadowlands Sports Complex. In addition, Unit members staff security posts at strategic locations within the Sports Complex which allows for the screening of all vehicles and pedestrians entering the Stadium perimeter.

Troop "B" works very closely with the United States Secret Service in accomplishing the mission of dignitary protection. Troop "B" has assisted on nearly one hundred visits of various V.I.P.'s including President Bush, Vice President Cheney, former U.S. Presidents Ford, Carter, Bush and Clinton. Also assisted were numerous foreign dignitaries, Heads of State as well as United States Senate and Congressional members, Cabinet members and military Generals during visits to the north Jersey area.

In addition to traditional police functions Troop "B" participates in the community policing concept. These activities include attendance at municipal government meetings, DARE graduations, as well as at community events such as youth athletic activities, high schools awards ceremonies, and senior citizen meetings.
