Since Union City is currently one of the most densely populated cites in the United States, public safety is a major concern of city officials. Currently the city employs approximately 200 police officers, making Union City's police force one of the largest in the state. Reflective of the city's population, our police officers' ethnic backgrounds are varied. Currently, Union City leads the North Hudson communities in the hiring of females police officers. Ten women have been hired to date, with more women on the waiting list.

Police headquarters is at City Hall, with precincts at 7th Street & Bergenline Avenue and 2700 Bergenline Avenue. The 27th Street precinct is also home to the Juvenile Aid Bureau, D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse Resistance Education, a program for children), and the Traffic Division of the police department.

In addition, the Union City Police Dept. maintains a community service center at the property of the Union City Housing Authority at 640 39th Street.

The Community Police Programs was recently expanded throughout the city and a bicycle patrol unit, added in 1996, has also been expanded throughout the city. Police services are provided by full-time paid personnel.
