To obtain a copy of a police report or motor vehicle crash report, wait three to five business days and then call the Records Bureau and check to make sure the report is completed and available. If the report is releasable, you may either request a copy by mail or come to police headquarters during regular business hours, 8:30 A.M. until 4:30 P.M., or purchase the report online at the link below. To request a copy by mail, send a check for $5 written out to "Township of South Brunswick"; enclose a note with your name, the case number (if available) and the location and date of the event. Also include a self addressed, stamped envelope.

How do I obtain a letter of good conduct or criminal history check record check? (Residents Only)
You can obtain a records check by bringing photo identification to the Records Bureau Monday through Friday, 8:30 A.M. until 4:00 P.M. You must complete a Criminal History Request Form if you need a letter of good conduct or a criminal history check.

The letter is usually done while you wait. There is a $10 fee for this service.

How do I obtain a temporary handicap parking placard? (Residents Only)
You can pick up a form at the Records Bureau. If you have a doctor's note and a check for $4 written out to "N.J. Motor Vehicle Commission", we will issue the placard at that time. If you do not have a note from your doctor you can take the form to the doctor and have him complete the form. You will then need to bring the form back to the Records Bureau during normal business hours (8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.) and a placard will be issued while you wait.

Permanent handicap parking applications can also be obtained from the Records Bureau, but YOU must complete the form and mail it to N.J. Division of Motor Vehicle. We do not issue permanent placards.
