Bergen Sheriff Launches 'Facecrook' to Catch Fugitives

Sheriff Michael Saudino launches a new application that allows residents to track fugitives.

Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino announced the launch of 'Facecrook,' a website that allows visitors to search fugitives wanted in the county.

Saudino said that this new application that appears on the Bergen County Sheriff's Office website allows people to search the site for any active outstanding warrants held by the Sheriff's office.

Saudino said that Facecrook was designed as a way to utilize the power of technology in light of budget cuts and staffing constraints. 

According to a press release, Facecrook will drastically increase the number of eyes on the street. Through the use of 'pinmapping,' visitors to the site can view the last known whereabouts of Bergen County fugitives.

Facecrook is linked to the Sheriff's Office automated records management system that updates information in real time. 

"The Facecrook system gives the public the opportunity to get off the sidelines and into the game in a safe manner," Saudino said in a release.

"Facecrook gives the public information on what these fugitives look like and data on where they might be living or working."

Saudino said that 'Facecrook' allows people to leave an anonymous tip alerting law enforcement that they may have information regarding a fugitive. 

Facecrook can be accessed by visiting facecrook.net or facecrook.us.
