How do I report a missing person?
You may initiate a Missing Persons Report by contacting the Police Department at 973-694-5533. Contrary to popular belief, law enforcement agencies in New Jersey do not require a person to wait a specific period of time before reporting a missing person. Once you suspect that a person is missing, the police should be notified immediately.

The Community Policing Unit encourages all parents to obtain Child Identification cards for their children. Child ID cards provide immeasurable assistance to law enforcement and parents in times of crisis when a child is lost or missing. The information contained on the Child ID cards allow officers to forward that information in the form of a statewide Amber Alert, which instantly notifies law enforcement of missing children. Child ID events are held several times each year. Watch your local newspapers and billboards for dates, or call the Community Policing Unit at 973-694-5533, ext. 7162 to find out when the next Child ID event is being held.
