The mission of the Bias Crime Unit, located within the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, is the statewide coordination of efforts to eliminate crimes motivated by prejudice against others based on race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or ethnicity.

The Bias Crime Guide (below under resources) is designed to provide our community with useful and pertinent information to assist them in identifying, fighting and eliminating Bias and Hate Crimes in the State of New Jersey. Only through the committed, collaborative efforts of all concerned will we be able to create a society free of bias and prejudice.
