Q. What are the business hours of the Police Department?
A. The Police Department maintains normal business hours Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM. This includes the availability of Police Officers to speak to you regarding your incidents, as well as our everyday business functions, such as retrieving police reports and filing applications for firearms permits.
Q. What are the observed holidays for business hours?
A. We observe the “Town Hall Closing” schedule set by the Township Committee. Please refer to their website (http://www.middletownship.com)
Q. Can I report a crime or event at the Police Station after business hours?
A. The Police Department will always take your report and speak to you! After business hours, you may come into the Police Station to report incidents. However, the availability of a Police Officer to promptly speak with you after hours is more limited, so there may more of a delay than during regular hours. Also, we cannot retrieve or produce police reports, issue handicap placards, firearms permits, and these like administrative functions outside of business hours.
Q. Can I report a crime over the phone?
A. You may report crimes for police responses over the telephone, but you cannot complete a police report using the telephone. In most cases, when you contact the Middle Township Police Department by telephone you are being connected our 911 Communications Center. These are operators that are trained to interview callers for pertinent information in emergencies, triage police, fire, and medical situations and respond appropriately. But these operators are not law enforcement officers, so they cannot take a report.

2. I missed a court date, or have questions regarding payments or entries that resulted from a traffic citation.
3. I need to change my plea according to the traffic summons I was issued.
