Chief David Hart announced today that the Linden Police Department has entered into an agreement with LexisNexis to offer community members an easy-to-use service to file or request online reports.
“We want to make sure that the process to make and/or request a Police report is as simple and convenient as possible,” said Police Chief David Hart.
”Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic we have seen an increasing demand to minimize the need for in-person reporting of minor incidents.”
The service provides community members with a quick and efficient way to report a variety of non-emergent incidents, such as harassing phone calls, identity theft, lost property, theft, traffic complaint, vandalism, and violations of a child custody agreement without coming to Police Headquarters or having an Officer in their home.
“This service will not only reduce the risk to Officers and the public as it relates to COVID-19 and other diseases, it allows us to more efficiently utilize our resources by reducing the demand for Officers to document minor incidents, giving them more time to focus on stopping criminals,” added Chief Hart.
