The Court Services Division, headed by Chief Leonard Lovely, is responsible for maintaining the security of the Court, its supporting judicial facilities, and the people who take part in court proceedings, programs, services and activities throughout the courthouse complex. The safety of thousands of people, including judges, lawyers, jurors, litigants, witnesses, judicial staff, press and the public, must be maintained to allow them to carry out their daily activities. The Court Services Division is also responsible for maintaining order in courtrooms, waiting areas and all other court premises. Sheriff Officers also effect arrests and respond to all types of emergencies including but not limited to medical, fire and bomb threats.
There are twenty five Superior Court Judges assigned to the Superior Court complex, six judges presiding in the Family part, ten judges, presiding in the Civil part and nine judges presiding in the Criminal part. Sheriff's Officers are stationed in all courtrooms. Every month in excess of one thousand inmates are transported from the Passaic County Jail and Juvenile Detention Center to secure temporary holding cells located at the court complex. These inmates are brought to the court complex for various judicial proceedings.
Each month over one thousand jurors are summoned to the Superior Court complex for jury duty. The Court Services Division insures that jurors are able to carry out their duties in a safe and comfortable environment by providing transportation to and from a secure parking area specifically designated for jurors. Sheriff Richard H. Berdnik also provides jurors who reside in the northern section of the county with transportation to the Courts from the parking area at the Willowbrook Mall.
