The South River Police Department maintains a tip line which allows concerned residents to report non-emergent crime or suspicious activity information. Reports can be submitted by dialing (732) 613-3099 or visiting the SRPD Report-it website.

The tip line allows citizens to leave a voicemail which is then reviewed by a detective. If you wish to remain anonymous, you do NOT have to provide your contact information. However, if you wish to receive a phone or email response from an officer or would like to discuss the information further with an officer, please provide a phone number or an email address where you can be reached.

This is NOT an emergency line and should NOT be used to report crimes in progress or emergency situations. These services are not a replacement for 
9-1-1. Residents should also keep in mind that reports submitted online or via the tip line are reviewed during the normal business hours of 8:30AM - 4:30PM, Monday through Friday.

If you witness or are experiencing an emergency situation, please call 9-1-1 immediately. An emergency is any serious medical problem (chest pain, seizure, bleeding, etc.), any type of fire (business, car, building, etc.), or any life-threatening situation (fights, person{s} with weapon{s}, etc. ) or any crime in progress (when the suspect is still on scene or has just fled).

Non-emergency calls should be directed to (732) 238-1000 which is the South River Police Department's non-emergency telephone number. A non-emergency incident is property damage, break-in to a vehicle (when the suspect is gone), theft of property (when the suspect is gone), vandalism (when the suspect is gone), panhandlers, intoxicated persons who are not disorderly, or cars blocking the street or alleys.
