What we do

It is the mission of the Colts Neck Police Department to provide superior law enforcement service while making our community the safest place for all to live, work, and visit.

This will be accomplished through a steadfast dedication to community service, an uncompromising concern for the welfare of all, and a Department dedication to continuous improvement. We will also work collaboratively to fulfill our Department’s paramount duty: the prevention and detection of crime, the apprehension and prosecution of criminals, and the relentless pursuit of justice.

**Important Notice**

Effective Monday May 18, 2020 all Colts Neck Township Police Department functions will be relocated to 1 Heritage Lane Colts Neck NJ (First Aid Squad Building). This move is to facilitate the demolition of our old Police and Court building and the anticipated construction of a new Township Municipal building. All police phone contact information will remain the same and our mailing address will continue to be 124 Cedar Drive Colts Neck NJ 07722. Any in person police business, including obtaining copies of reports, will be conducted at 1 Heritage Lane Colts Neck. All essential and emergency police functions will continue to operate without any interruptions during this transition.
