(N.J.S.A. 47:lA-1, et seq.)

A request for Public Records must be submitted to the above address, on this form which has been adopted by the Prosecutor of Ocean County as the Custodian of Records. If your request is approved, it will take some time to compile the records and make the copies requested, but they will normally be available within seven business days pursuant to statute.

Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47: 1A-5c., this office may impose a reasonable special service charge if the nature, format, manner of collation, or volume of a government record is such that it cannot be reproduced by ordinary document copying equipment in ordinary business size or involves an extraordinary expenditure of time and effort to accommodate your request.
