Services: The Bordentown Township Police Department offers various community programs for the residents within the Township. We strive to offer our community the best police service we can with all of our resources.
Fingerprinting: Fingerprinting is offered to residents free of charge to all Township residents or employees/employers within the Township. We offer fingerprinting of Federal Finger Print Cards only. Hours are Tuesday & Thursday from 4:30-6:30pm.
Child Passenger Seat Safety Program: This safety program is available to parents who have children that must use car seats. This program ensures that the child seat meets the Federal Safety Standards. Officers are trained in the installation and inspection of the seat and offer instruction to the parents in the proper installation to ensure that their children are properly fitted with the child seat being utilized. Please contact Ptl. Edwards to schedule a car seat installation at 609-298-0025, ext. 1222, or via email at [email protected].
Community Policing Unit: Within this unit is a Juvenile Liaison Officer to the Bordentown Regional School District and the County of Burlington. This officer is available to provide guidance as needed to juveniles and assists the schools with any problems that they may encounter. Also within this unit is the agency’s Bike Patrol Officer. This unit works at community events as sporting events, and the 4th of July festivities and also does regular patrol work.
Burglar Alarm Permits: The Township of Bordentown requires all burglar alarms be properly registered with the Police Department. This agency responds to well over one thousand false alarms per year. This presents a substantial drain on patrol time, manpower, finances, and places a substantial risk to police officers and public safety when responding to alarms. For these reasons, an ordinance regulating alarm systems was adopted. Alarm permit applications and copy of the ordinance can be obtained at the Police Department anytime. There is a one-time fee of $10.00 per residential property or business property. It is the property owners responsibility to keep up to date records with the police department regarding the alarm company and to ensure compliance to this ordinance.

Security Camera Registration Program
The Bordentown Township Police Department is looking for your help in fighting crime by taking part in our voluntary Security Camera Registration Program. This program allows residents and business owners to register the locations of their video surveillance systems with our department. When a crime occurs, police will be able to quickly identify the locations of nearby cameras and enlist the assistance of the community to help officers collect video evidence and follow up on leads.
Registration is voluntary and there is no cost. Registering your camera does not provide the Bordentown Township Police Department with direct access to your cameras. You may request your registration be removed at any time by contacting us using the information below. An individual’s personal information will be kept strictly confidential by the Bordentown Township Police Department subject to disclosure per court order. The information you submit may be accessed by law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime in the vicinity of where your camera is located. You will only be contacted by the Bordentown Township Police Department if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime.
The goal of the program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Bordentown Township Police Department and the residents and businesses we are sworn to protect.
