Public Records (OPRA) Request

The New Jersey Public Records Act (N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1, et. seq.) provides that certain government records shall be made available to the public for inspection, examination, and copying.

Citizens who wish to obtain government records must file a records request with the Custodian of Records. This is accomplished by completing a form available at the sheriff’s office. For your convenience, we have also made the form available online.

Fill out our OPRA Form   

The procedure for obtaining government records is fairly straightforward, however, it is important to note that in order for your request to be processed, you will be required to provide an accurate description for each record sought.

The form can be completed online. You may also mail, fax or e-mail the printable version of the form to:
