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 not to 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.
