The City of Lambertville Police Department works to protect public safety and believes in proactive outreach to ensure constructive relations with the community. The Department performs its duties consistent with modern, community policing practices, routinely soliciting citizen input in addressing crime and quality-of-life issues and always striving to identify and solve problems by maintaining open lines of communication. Toward that end, all patrol officers now wear body cameras, which serve to enhance transparency and accountability.



Operational around-the-clock, seven days a week, the Department is primarily a uniformed patrol based operation. It does, however, provide a criminal investigative function through the assignment of a detective as well as conduct specialized patrols.

Our police officers and civilian staff are dedicated. Not only do our officers receive ongoing training in procedures, firearms and other essential areas of law enforcement, they also receive advanced training on topics, such as traffic accidents, criminal investigations, terrorism, internal affairs, narcotics

To ensure that Lambertville is a safe place to walk, bike and drive, the police department vigilantly enforces the state’s driving laws and provides constant public education on safe driving habits, participating in a number of grant-funded programs safety programs. Two major ones are highlighted below:

Click it or Ticket

Studies show that seat belts save lives, yet too many people still don’t buckle up. More than 1,600 unbuckled motor vehicle occupants died on New Jersey’s roadways in the past 10 years.

We enforce the seat belt laws with zero tolerance in Lambertville and provide ongoing education about the importance of wearing a seat belt whether you are the driver or a passenger. For more information on this initiative, visit Click it or Ticket.



Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

The City Police Department vigilantly enforces the drunk driving laws.  Driving under the influence remains the number one cause of traffic fatalities and there is no tolerance of it in Lambertville. People who drive drunk or under the influence of a recreational drug within the City limits will be pulled over and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. For more information, visit Drive Sober.
