Wimson Crespo
Director of Investigations
Wimson Crespo was appointed to the position of Chief of the Juvenile Justice Commission's Office of Investigations in March, 2003 following more than a decade in the correctional field.
In 1990, Mr. Crespo joined the New Jersey Department of Corrections and was assigned to the East Jersey State Prison in Rahway. After two years, he was promoted and reassigned to the New Jersey State Prison in Trenton. Mr. Crespo joined the JJC's secure facility for female juveniles in 1997. In 1999, Mr. Crespo moved to the JJC's Office of Investigations and served as the Office's Deputy Chief before being appointed to lead the Office of Investigations.
The Office of Investigations conducts prompt and thorough investigations of all allegations of misconduct. This office has both law enforcement authority and administrative authority to conduct investigations concerning any allegation of criminal action, misconduct, compliance with State, Departmental or Commission rules and regulations, standard operating procedures, and orders of the Juvenile Justice Commission.
Mr. Crespo was born in Utuado, Puerto Rico and grew up in Trenton, graduating from Trenton Central High in 1984 and attending Mercer County Community College. He is an active member of his community participating in various programs that assist juveniles and young adults. For more than fifteen years, he has coached baseball, basketball and soccer and held numerous league positions in various communities. As a Martial Arts Instructor, he has found yet another method to lead youngsters in a positive direction and now does so with the help of his son, Wimson Jr. who recently received his Black Belt.
Mr. Crespo speaks at numerous schools about law enforcement and is always encouraging youth, particularly Hispanic males and females, to consider careers in law enforcement. Throughout his career as a law enforcement officer and as a citizen, Mr. Crespo has been a role model for Hispanic youth and all young men and women in the communities in which he has lived.
Wimson Crespo is the proud father of a son and daughter.
