The Secaucus police chief is urging the state to shut down AJ’s, a go-go bar in Secaucus, after an undercover police officer was offered sex for money.
The Secaucus Police Department says it received a tip back in April that prostitution is still taking place at the night club located on Secaucus Road. During the week of June 10, authorities say undercover police officers were inside AJ’s Go-Go Bar as part of an investigation. An arrest was made after an undercover police officer was offered sexual favors in exchange for money, according to authorities.
Police say 36-year-old Dilcia Nunez Gomez, of Belleville, was charged with engaging in prostitution and promoting prostitution.    
“The State Alcohol and Beverage Control Board continues to allow AJ’s operate, despite my plea to them to revoke their license,” Chief Dennis Miller said in a statement. “I commend the efforts of our investigative personnel for their continued hard work, but I feel like my police department is working alone. The inaction of the State Alcohol Beverage Control Board continues to allow vice crimes to flourish at AJ’s.”
