Sheriff's Office Plans New Patrol Headquarters in Newark


Newark, New Jersey: A new law enforcement building is planned for Newark.

City records show that the Essex County Sheriff's Office is planning a new headquarters for its patrol division in Fairmount neighborhood of the city's West Ward. The building is slated to rise at 525-545 West Market Street, at the corner of Sussex Avenue

Currently, most of the property is a gated vacant lot that is owned by the City of Newark. The site sits adjacent to Interstate 280, and is across the street from the former United Hospital site, which is being converted into the Essex County Donald M. Payne, Sr. Vocational-Technical Campus

Comito Associates, PC, of Newark, is listed as the project architect and engineer. Records from the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission database show that Gregory Comito, the firm's founder and president, has donated $6600 to the campaign of County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo, Jr.  since 2008, in addition to funds towards the Essex County Democratic Committee.

Newark's Central Planning Board approved a courtesy review of the project during its meeting on January 9th.

The Essex County Sheriff's Office Patrol Division is currently based in the Essex County Park Commission Administration Building on Clifton Avenue. The division took over the Essex County Division of County Police in 2006.
