How to Report A Crime


Contact the Pitman Police Department as soon as you discover a crime has been committed, or if a crime is in the process of being committed. Whenever you observe suspicious activity or events - even though you may not be the only person observing them - please report the incident immediately to the Pitman Police Department.  In an Emergency, dial 911;  non-emergency, call the Department at (856) 589-3501.


From a pay phone, a 911 call is free and does not require a deposit of coins.

Never think it is the other guy who will make the call.   Make the call; otherwise valuable Police response time could be lost.  If in doubt, call the police. How do you report a crime? Immediately call the police or visit the station at 110 S. Broadway.  You will be asked for your name, address and telephone number.   This information is requested in case additional information is needed.  You can request to remain anonymous from the completed report, but for the initial call you must provide a name and telephone number.

Remember to communicate what happened, where it happened and whether anyone is injured.  Provide any names and physical descriptions including facial features, clothing, an estimate of age, height and weight.  If a vehicle is involved, provide a description including color, make, model and license plate number and state of registration. (Ex. New Jersey, Pennsylvania)

Be alert and observant.  Features and physical descriptions assist responding officers with the arrest and conviction of criminals.
