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

 

Arrest report, complaint, affidavit 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).  Vehicle registration is redacted as
a "confidential personal identifier" pursuant to R. 1:38-7(a) and N.J.S.A.
47:1A-9.

 

A CAD summary 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").

 

Request for indictment is denied for lack of a responsive record.
