Effective 3/18/20, Asbury Park Police Department
Implements Call-in Reporting
Call-in reporting will help APPD continue to provide the best police services possible for our community while ensuring the safety of both residents and officers. It will eliminate the need for residents to come to the police station to report non-emergency incidents, and for officers to visit residences to collect information for non-emergency calls. These efforts will hopefully reduce exposure to COVID-19 for both residents and officers.
To make a call-in police report for a non-emergency incident:
1) Call our non-emergency phone number (732-774-1300) and press “0” for the call taker.
2) The call taker will take your information, most importantly your call back telephone number.
3) An officer will return your call and complete the necessary police report. If there are documents or photos associated with the incident, the officer will provide you an email and/or fax where you can submit these documents.
4) Once the police report is completed, the officer will provide you with a case number for future reference.
We would like to assure the public that APPD remains vigilant and is dedicated to providing our residents with the finest professional service.
Furthermore, our officers are conducting periodic business checks to ensure the security of our business establishments during these difficult times.
As always, if you see something suspicious or concerning please contact us. In case of emergency, dial 9-1-1.
