Attached please find records responsive to the below public record
request.

 

Arrest report, complaints, affidavits of probable cause are provided with
telephone, driver's license, and social security numbers redacted in
accordance with N.J.S.A. 47:1A-5(a).

 

A CAD is attached, with redactions pursuant to the "criminal investigatory
record" exception, N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1., as interpreted and applied to CAD
reports in North Jersey Media Group, Inc. v. Township of Lyndhurst, 441
N.J. Super. 70, 105-07 (App. Div. 2015), rev'd on other grounds, 229 N.J.
541, 569 n.6 (2017).

 

The request for police incident reports is denied pursuant to the
"criminal investigatory record" exception.  N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1; see North
Jersey Media Group, Inc. v. Township of Lyndhurst, 229 N.J. 541, 569
(2017) (investigative reports and witness statements about criminal
incident "fall within the 'criminal investigatory record exception'");
Serrano v. South Brunswick Twp, 358 N.J. Super. 356-57, 360, 370 (App.
Div. 2003) (affirming dismissal of portion of complaint regarding
non-disclosure of police and EMT reports, on the ground such documents
were "criminal investigatory records").

 

This case was remanded to municipal court today.  Request for indictment
is denied for lack of a responsive record.
