Traffic Safety

The Community Services Bureau (CSB) is also responsible for traffic safety within the Township. In keeping with this role, CSB investigates all traffic complaints received by the department. As part of the investigation, a detailed traffic study may be conducted using in-road sensors that record the volume and speed of traffic. CSB will also conduct high visibility and specialized enforcement of problem areas. Other tactics that may be incorporated include placement of supplemental signage or the temporary placement of the department's speed trailer.

CSB is also responsible for planning the traffic plans for all special events that result in street closures. It also inspects any construction projects that may have an impact on vehicle or pedestrian traffic to ensure that all proper signage and other requirements are met.

Traffic Complaints

As mentioned above, CSB investigates all traffic complaints received by the department. These complaints range from vehicles speeding to missing or malfunctioning traffic signs/signals. Every complaint is investigated and corrective measures are taken if the complaint is found to be justified.

If you would like to file a traffic complaint, please contact:

Community Service Bureau

Please be very specific as to the location and time(s) that the problem is observed. An officer will contact you regarding your complaint and keep you updated on the status of the investigation.

Stop for Pedestrians

The Denville Police would like to remind all drivers that they are required to stop for pedestrians in a crosswalk. Failure to do so may result in a summons being issued to the driver. As we have a very busy business district, please be extra aware of all pedestrians as you drive through town. As for the pedestrians, please remember to use the crosswalks and cross at signalized intersections only on the green "go" signal.

Overnight Parking

Parking is prohibited on any street within the Township between 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. every day. If you need to park a vehicle on the street overnight for any reason, you must contact the police department and request permission. If you do not receive permission, any vehicles found on the street may be issued a summons.

No Parking Snow Covered Road

Parking on the street is prohibited when roads are snow covered. This is to allow the Township's snow plows to safely and effectively remove snow from the roadways. Any vehicles found obstructing the snow plows may be ticketed and towed at the owner's expense.

Child Passenger Safety

National surveys continue to reveal that many child safety seats are improperly installed. The Denville Police Department has several specially trained officers that can inspect your child's safety seat to insure that it is properly installed. To learn more information, please visit of Child Passenger Safety page.
