If you need to file a non-emergency report such as minor property damage, ID Theft, criminal mischief, harassment (Non Domestic Violence related), or lost property utilize our online self-reporting system here. If the report requires any follow up, an officer will contact you at the number on the reporting form. If you have a life or death emergency call 9-1-1!
For a tutorial on how the system works, you can watch this video: Online Self-Reporting System
Filing a false police report is a crime. Any person who gives or causes to be given false information to any law enforcement officer, with respect to the commission of any crime or incident, is guilty of a fourth degree crime under the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice (2C:28-4). Fourth degree crimes are punishable by a fine of not more than $ 1,000.00, or by imprisonment for not more than 18 months, or both.
