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

Look No Further, My Friend, The
Municipal Code Has The Answers!
The Jersey City Municipal Code (Code) is a
compilation of local laws and legislation
 adopted by the governing body of the City.

Over the long course of Jersey City’s history, the Code
has required constant updates, which are currently being
done by the Municipal Code Corporation.

Extremely user friendly, the Code is organized alphabetically by
subject & outlines the duties and responsibilities of all those who
live, work, visit, conduct business and/or provide services
 in Jersey City. The noise ordinance, btw,  is #222
on the Hit Parade!
