There are situations, such as applying for a firearm permit or obtaining a Letter of Good Conduct from the New Jersey State Police, when a person is required to submit a set of fingerprints. The Trenton Police Department does fingerprinting as a service to City residents and non-City residents.
Persons who want to be fingerprinted must go to the Records Office between 9 am and 3 pm, Monday through Friday on the first floor of Police Headquarters, which are located at:225 N Clinton AvenueTrenton, NJ 08609
There is a $25 fee for City Residents and a $30 fee for non-City Residents. The person being fingerprinted must bring picture identification that verifies he or she is a Trenton resident.
The police command staff analyzes every crime reported in the city during the weekly ComStat meeting. Commanders "brain storm'' for patterns, discuss potential suspects and decide on strategy. Commanders present statistical summaries of crimes within their areas of responsibility, explain their response to those crimes and present strategies responsive to the trends uncovered by computerized mapping and other analysis.
Each week at ComStat commanders "recap'' the results achieved based on decisions made at earlier ComStats. The ComStat process strengthens the culture of accountability at the Trenton Police Department while creating a forum for veteran commanders to pool their knowledge on an ongoing basis.
The Trenton Police Department is initiating a "Speak without Fear" campaign that encourages community members to speak up about crimes and other problems in their neighborhoods. The Speak without Fear program is designed to provide community members with several ways to anonymously provide information regarding neighborhood crime. We recognize that in order to ensure a safe City, the citizens must be able to freely provide information about criminal activity to the Police. The Trenton Police Department also recognizes that it has an obligation to protect the identity of those who provide information to them regarding criminal activity.
In order to accomplish this, the Speak Without Fear program has provided four different ways of anonymously report information about criminal activity to the Police Department. These four ways include:
Citizens will be encouraged to use these communication channels and Speak Without Fear knowing that their identity will be protected and that their information will make the City of Trenton a safer place to live.
