The Records Bureau maintains all of the department's incident and arrest reports, as well as motor vehicle crash reports. The Records Bureau is currently staffed by a full time civilian Records Clerk and a part-time civilian Assistant Records Clerk.
Motor vehicle crash reports are generally available 5 to 7 business days after the report is made and police incident reports are available 5 to 10 business days after the date of the incident. You will need to provide the records clerk with the incident report number and/or your name and the approximate date the report was made. It is recommended that you call our office to check the status of the report's availability before coming to headquarters.
For OPRA Requests, please fill out the Opra Request Form, which can be downloaded from the menu on the left side of this page, and submit it to the Records Bureau.
Crash Reports can be accessed online from the menu on the left side of this page. You will need your crash report number in order to access your report.
The Records Bureau is located in the front lobby of police headquarters and is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., but is closed on all major holidays.
If you have any other questions concerning a police incident report or a motor vehicle crash report, you can contact the Records Bureau by phone at 973-627-4900 ext. 305 (Amy Laudati).
