27 years ago today the North Bergen Police Department hired our first female Police Officer in department history. Bernadette Paul-Gonyou was sworn as a North Bergen Police Officer and rose to the rank of Lieutenant before her retirement. Lt. Paul-Gonyou became the first female Sergeant and Lieutenant in department history as well.

Lt. Paul-Gonyou paved the way for many NBPD females who came after her. Two other females, Christine Dall-Klag and Cynthia Montero have also reached the rank of Lieutenant since. The NBPD currently has (15) female Officers in the rank and file which equates to (12.5%) of our force. We aim to increase that number during every recruiting period.
