The Bergenfield Police Department is currently investigating a possible suicidal person at a Frederick Place address. There is a history of police contacts with the individual, a 46-year-old male, residing at the location.

Based on the person’s recent arrest by the Bergenfield Police that involved resistance, we are taking all precautions to investigate further. There are no known weapons on the premises and no threats have been made regarding use of weapons, however, the police and SWAT are handling the situation taking all possibilities into account.
The area of New Bridge Road and Frederick Place is barricaded to traffic until the situation is resolved.
