The New Brunswick Police Department will take reports over the phone for non-emergency incidents and minor crimes. Taking a report over the phone is at the OPTION of the Caller. This service is being provided if individuals wish to limit their exposure to other individuals and would prefer to not have an officer respond to their residence or place of reporting. Of course, if a caller would prefer to speak with an officer in-person, an officer will be dispatched to their location as usual. If a report is taken over the phone and the officer determines the nature of the incident is more serious, an officer will be dispatched to the caller for further investigation and/or follow up.
- All civilian fingerprinting, not required by law or statute, will be suspended. Megan's Law registrants must still be fingerprinted as per their court orders. Megan's Law registrants must make an appointment with their assigned detective prior to coming to police headquarters.
- All new applicants for gun permits and firearm identification cards will be by appointment only. Please call 732-745-5216 to schedule an appointment. All in-progress applications will be completed as usual and the applicants will be notified with further instructions upon completion of the completed permits.
