You will receive an email notification with instructions on how to download the report.

What information do I need to place a request for crash report?

For a Roadway Crash Report request, there is a real-time search feature where you can search either using Case Number, Driver's License Number, License Plate Number or Involved Party Last Name. Using any of the real time searches will allow for speedy delivery of the report.

However, for Non-Toll Roads if you do not have any of these, you can search on information about the crash like driver's name, date and time of crash, and location of the crash. This may, however, take longer time for delivery and it is very important to enter accurate information about the crash to ensure that the crash report request gets fulfilled.

A Boat Crash Report request can be placed using the Case Number or other Crash Details. Records Request requires you to enter the Case Number, Docket Number for the Court Order and Bar Association Number and upload the Court Order. If you are placing an order for printed photographs, please first contact the New Jersey State Police at 609-882-200 ext. 2234 to get the Verification Code and number of photographs available for the Case Number.
