The East Windsor Police Department Records Division serves as the central hub and depository for all information and documents generated by the East Windsor Police Department. The Records Division primary mission is to receive, integrate, compile, maintain, disseminate, and file all departmental reports and information. One of the primary responsibilities of the records division is to distribute current information and reports, along with supporting documents to other divisions of the police department. Additionally, the Records Division provides documents to other state and federal agencies, to the public pursuant to state statute, and to court on a day-to-day basis. The Records Division is also responsible for receiving and processing applications for temporary state permits to carry pistols or revolvers.
Requesting Police Reports
Copies of reports may be requested in person or by mail; however, state statutes govern which reports are permitted to be released. The officers have as long as needed to complete reports. After a certain length of time your report may have been destroyed according to the schedule provided by the Public Records Administration. There are many variables which may come into play in whether your report is releasable.
Accident Reports – There are no restrictions on the release of motor vehicle accidents unless criminal charges were filed in relation to the accident. If criminal charges were filed, public release must await final court disposition (final ruling from court) of any criminal charges. However, persons actually involved in the accident may obtain the record subsequent to the issuance of a warrant or summons in the matter. Accident reports with the exception of fatalities may be destroyed after ten years.
Arrest Reports – Arrest reports are only available once we received a disposition from court. If we do not have a disposition you can only get the report through court by filing a motion. Any confidential information will be redacted (edited for legal purposes).
Active Investigations – These records are not accessible.
Reports Containing Medical Information – These are not available except to the person involved.
Uncorroborated Allegations – Access to these is denied by law.
Juvenile Information – The police are statutorily forbidden from releasing juvenile arrest information.
Certain Identities – The identities of certain persons are exempt from disclosure by statute; Sexual Assault and Risk of Injury victims, certain witnesses (as well as signed statements from witnesses) and confidential sources.
Costs for Reports
According to state statute § 1-212 there is a charge for reports. Written requests must also include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Requests that require special considerations may result in an increased cost, at times including labor costs. Please call the Records Division for the cost of the report you are requesting.
Requesting a Personal Records Check
Personal Records Checks are $5 and only records within the Town of East Windsor will be searched. For a statewide criminal history check, you may visit the State Police Bureau of Identification.
Pistol Permit applications (instructions included) are available in the lobby of the police department. Please note: Fingerprints cannot be processed without your fully completed application. It can take up to 90 days to process your application.
