Newark Police Opening Internal Affairs Office on Broad Street

Newark, New Jersey: The Internal Affairs Division of the Newark Police Department will be relocating again.

According to Newark Communications Director Frank Baraff, the Division is moving to 494 Broad Street, which is located near Riverfront Stadium between Bridge Street and Atlantic Street. 'Coming soon' signs have been posted on the first floor of the part of the building which was completed last year. A parking garage, a Cablevision call center, and News 12 New Jersey's Newark Newsroom are also located in the building.

Currently, NPD's Internal Affairs division is based at City Hall. It moved there in 2015 from the 4th Precinct in Newark's West Ward. Mayor Ras Baraka announced in January that a civilian will direct the Internal Affairs Division.
