With the school year coming to an end and summer quickly approaching, the Matawan Police Department Traffic Safety Unit will be focusing on speed enforcement and education. Consequences of speeding, particularly in residential areas where our children play and ride their bicycles, include a greater potential for loss of vehicle control, increased stopping distance after a danger is perceived and a greater severity of crash. In addition to various enforcement details targeting speeding and aggressive driving and the deployment of our RADAR trailers and message boards, today we announce our “DRIVE 25” Lawn Sign Initiative.

Any resident interested in assisting the Police Department in getting the word out to motorists to drive 25 MPH in residential areas, we will provide you with a lawn sign to display on your property. Interested residents can request a sign by emailing the Traffic Safety Unit at [email protected]. Signs will be delivered to your residence by an officer on patrol within a few days of your request. There are a limited number of signs so they will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Please help us spread the word to drive 25 MPH in residential areas!

We are happy to announce that the Police Department has relocated to our new facility at 201 Broad St. Our headquarters is now in the same complex as Borough Hall. We’ve been looking forward to this move for quite some time and are very excited to move into our “new home.” We ask for your support, patience and understanding while we get settled in.

The public entrance to Police Headquarters is located on Broad St., to the right of the main entrance to Borough Hall (formerly the entrance to the Construction Department and the Fire Prevention Bureau). Those departments can be accessed via the main entrance to Borough Hall and are now located in the Church St. Annex of the complex. Upon entering the entrance to Police Headquarters, members of the public will be received at our Records Division window. The Records Division is normally staffed M-F, 8:00 am to 11:00 pm. In the event the Records Division is closed, please press the call button at the main entrance and an officer will be dispatched to headquarters to speak with you.

Although the location of our headquarters has changed, our mission remains the same. We look forward to continue to provide a safe community to our residents and visitors from our new location, as we have since 1926.

Our phone numbers and website remain the same:
