Jersey City NJ, New Jersey Transit Police apprehend man wanted for homicide, credit counter terrorism and crime suppression unit.
The New Jersey Transit Police Counter Terrorism Crime Suppression Task Unit (CTCS TU) consists of officers from the Anti-Crime Unit and Patrol Division. Earlier this month, the CTCS TU officers were assigned to a detail at 2nd Street Station in Jersey City. While there, they met a subject who had been riding on board a light rail vehicle. The subject had not purchased a valid light rail ticket and was detained for theft of service. A record check revealed multiple warrants including a warrant for homicide out of Hudson County. The subject was also in violation of a pretrial release and was safely placed under arrest.
Our CTCS TU Officers continue to observe individuals’ behaviors, detect suspicious activity, and strive to prevent crime. CTCS TU Officers also enforce quality-of-life offenses. In this case, and in all cases, the goal is to protect you and our system.
