Residents Urged to Utilize Online Reporting Portal in the Wake of COVID-19 Concerns
The purpose of this function is to allow Boonton Township citizens, customers or any victim of a crime that occurred within the Township limits, to file police reports online. After completing all required information you will be able to print a copy of the information that you submitted. If the incident you wish to report is an emergency, a crime in progress, or involves any type of injury please do not submit the report online, but dial 9-1-1. Domestic violence incidents do not qualify under the online reporting criteria and must have an officer respond.
If you are unable to determine if the incident is related to Domestic Violence and not in progress dial the police non-emergent number (973) 402-4000 to have an officer respond to your location. The loss or theft of prescription medication or narcotics cannot be reported online. For any incident that requires a police officer to respond dial the police non-emergency number (973) 402-4000.
Before you proceed, you should be aware that it is a crime to make a false police report and all instances of false reports will be prosecuted. This online reporting system is only to be used to report a set of limited criminal incidents with very specific criteria listed below.
BTPD Warns of Scams Targeting Senior Citizens
Senior citizens across the state are being targeted through a phone scam. Victims are contacted, via phone, and informed that their grandchild was in an accident or was arrested and they are in need of bail money to be released. The caller tells the victim the sum of money needed and sends a courier to their home to pick it up or directs them to wire the money or purchase gift cards.
There have been over 70 incidents reported statewide with several occurring in Boonton Township. Anyone receiving a similar call is asked to contact BTPD immediately.
