Spring Lake Police Department

OPRA Requests

Any requests for police reports must be made through the Records Department, which is open Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 4 PM.  The Records Department is closed on weekends, Federal, State and Municipal Holidays.  Accident Reports and General Complaint Reports are available for a fee.

All OPRA requests should be submitted on a form obtained from the Police Department Records Clerk, or downloaded from this site.  Some records require time to compile and make the copies requested, but generally the records will be available during normal business hours within seven (7) business days.  If a requested document or copy is not a public record, or cannot be provided within seven (7) business days, you will be provided with a response.

The term “Public Record” generally includes those records determined to be public in accordance with N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.  The term does not include employee personnel files, police investigation records, public assistance files, or other matters where there is a right of privacy or confidentiality, or which is specifically exempted by law.
