The Montville Township Police Department has made some modifications to the way we will operate during the State of Emergency. I want to ensure the public that these modifications are being put in place to protect the public while at the same time protecting my police officers, dispatchers and civilian staff.
Emergency Calls: Police Officers WILL respond to all urgent emergency calls for service. Our officer may request you meet them outside a residence if possible. Our 911 system will remain fully operational.
Non-Emergency Calls: If the call for service is a non-emergency we will screen the complaint by phone and if appropriate may take the report over the phone.
Public Safety Building: We would ask that you call the police department 973-257-4300, prior to coming to our building, except if it is an emergency. Many times we may be able to help you over the phone.
Records Bureau: If you have a records request please call us at 973-257-4102 or email us at Records@montvillenj.org. Please provide the report number or date and location of the incident.
Fingerprinting Services: All fingerprinting services have been suspended until further notice.
Municipal Court Sessions have been cancelled until further notice. Please call the municipal court at 973-335-1022 if you need assistance with any court matter.
Discovery and OPRA requests will be processed, however there may be delays in filling these requests.
I want to thank the public for understanding that the police departments social distancing is only being done to help slow down the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and does not represent the true relationship we share with this great community. I look forward to the day that we can continue to interact with the public and participate in community events, such as Coffee with a Cop, the 4th of July Celebration, Montville Day and many other events. Stay safe.
