While Bloomfield may be only 5.32 square miles and rank fourth in terms of population (i.e. 47,315 residents as of 2010 Consensus), it is frequently a challenger for the top municipality in Essex County for DWI charges. The primary reasons for such a high number of DWI and DUI offenses in the municipality are the Garden State Parkway and the concentration of state police in the vicinity of Bloomfield Trooper Station at milepost 153. This translated into 245 motorists arrested in Bloomfield for driving while intoxicated and driving under the influence of drugs for the year ending June 2015.
