Official Corruption Bureau

The Official Corruption Bureau, comprised of a Bureau command and North and South Units, is responsible for conducting criminal investigations into allegations of official misconduct. These investigations involve any elected or appointed government employee, or agent thereof, who attempts to derive a benefit as a result of the position held. Within the Bureau's mission, detectives address these issues of corruption by conducting detailed investigations, often interacting with department and agency heads to bring these allegations to a logical conclusion. Bureau members initiate investigations from leads received by law enforcement agencies, information from cooperating witnesses and complaints from the general public. While all investigated conduct does not rise to the level of criminal conduct, the investigations often lead to corrective actions and new safeguards put in place to avoid a recurrence of these activities.

The Official Corruption Bureau is made up of the following Units:

Official Corruption North Unit

The mission of the Official Corruption North Unit is to identify and investigate allegations of official misconduct in the northern region of the State. These investigations involve any elected or appointed government employee, or agent thereof, who attempts to derive a benefit as a result of the position held. The Official Corruption North Unit conducts detailed investigations and prepares strategies to bring these allegations to a logical conclusion.

Official Corruption South Unit

The mission of the Official Corruption South Unit is to identify and investigate allegations of official misconduct in the southern region of the State. These investigations involve any elected or appointed government employee, or agent thereof, who attempts to derive a benefit as a result of the position held. The Official Corruption North Unit conducts detailed investigations and prepares strategies to bring these allegations to a logical conclusion.

Witness Relocation Unit

The Witness Relocation Unit provides protection, security and relocation services for witnesses to and victims of crimes who are involved in official proceedings related to persons involved in organized criminal activity or other serious offenses. The Witness Relocation Unit may provide identity documents, assistance in obtaining housing and the administration of subsistence funds to crime witnesses or victims should they meet the guidelines of the witness relocation program as set forth by the Office of the Attorney General of the State of New Jersey.
