Records & Reports
Police reports are obtained through the Records Section of the Police Division.
The Records Section is open from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, Monday thru Friday (except holidays).
Police reports generated and prepared by patrol officers are subjected to a review process. This process causes the release of records to be delayed. Anyone requesting a report should first call the Police Division’s Records Section to ascertain if the report is ready for release. The numbers to contact for this is 732-657-2009 ext 4501 or 4503.
Generally, you should expect that it will take five business days for your report to be available for release.
Any police report involving criminal conduct cannot be released as it is an investigatory record which is exempt from the Open Public Records Act (OPRA). Those police reports needed by victims for insurance purposes will have certain information omitted or redacted.
