Submission Protocols

There are three ways to submit the New Jersey Police Crash Investigation Report form (NJTR-1):

On paper via United States (US) Mail

A non-Fatal reportable crash (NJTR-1) needs only to be mailed to the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) at the address below, within five days in accordance with State Statute Title 39. None are to be mailed to the Motor Vehicle Commission or State Police.

New Jersey Department of Transportation
1035 Parkway Avenue, P.O.Box 600
Trenton, NJ 08625-0600
Attention: Bureau of Transportation Data and Safety
Crash Records Unit
Phone: 609.963.1670

Uploading as a Portable Document Format (PDF) File

To participate in this program, an account is needed for your Police Department from NJDOT and the requirements listed below must be met:

  • Save each NJTR-1 as a PDF file with the Department Case Number as the filename. All pages of a single report must be in one PDF file (including narrative, diagrams, etc.).
  • Zip all PDF files (using WinZip) that have been processed during the past week and name the ZIP file in a specific format. NJDOT encourages Police Departments to send the reports once a week (can be sent on any day/time).
  • Have Internet access.
  • Reports need to be typed.
Electronic Transfer of NJTR-1

NJDOT will be offering electronic transfer of NJTR-1 Crash Data to vendors of New Jersey’s Local Enforcement Agencies (LEAs). Participating vendors of LEAs must have the capability to transmit approved crash report data from multiple police agencies they support. In the future, NJDOT plans to offer the electronic transfer option to individual police departments.

Please send a request to NJDOT Crash Records. Requirements and protocols regarding formatting of data will be e-mailed to you.
