The Lacey Township Police Department continues to adjust department policy and how we manage our workforce to guard against employee exposure, unnecessary interaction with the public, and to reduce the threats of employee absenteeism and attrition. As a result. last evening the Lacey Township Police Department website http://Laceypd.org was updated to allow specific non-emergent incidents to be reported on-line utilizing our self-reporting module. Once you log on to our website, just click on the Red Bar at the top of the screen that states, “File Police Report Online.” Follow the steps/directions to self report. In addition, you may call the Lacey Township Police Department at (609) 693-6636 to file a report.
Always call 911 in an emergency.
I would like to thank the Lacey Township Community for your continued support of the police department during this time, very much appreciated.
