No-Knock Ordinance 

In late 2016, Members of the Jersey City Municipal Council began holding numerous rounds of meetings with community leaders to develop a plan for a “No-Knock” ordinance, with the goal of creating a safe space for all Jersey City residents. Jersey City takes pride in its diversity and tolerance, a goal shared by all parties throughout the process. 


On March 8, 2017, the Jersey City Municipal Council unanimously approved Ordinance 17-022 to create a registry for residents who do not wish to receive door-to-door solicitation. The ordinance, which took effect on March 28, 2017, stipulates that anybody wishing to have their home added to the “No-Knock” registry submit their name and address to the City Clerk. This can be done by submitting the form found here

Extremely user friendly, the Code is organized alphabetically by
