BERGEN COUNTY - A new prosecutor was sworn in for Bergen County Monday.

Gurbir Grewal took the oath to be the new acting prosecutor. Grewal becomes the first South Asian and first Sikh to serve as a county prosecutor in the Garden State.

"I've spent the majority of my professional career as a federal prosecutor and there is nothing more rewarding to me than public service and helping the communities that I work in,” Grewal said.

He previously worked in the U.S. Attorney’s Offices in New Jersey and Brooklyn.

Grewal, who lives in Glen Rock, replaces former Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli, who was not reappointed.
