Belleville Police Department – Home Burglaries

Recently the Belleville Police Department has been receiving reports of burglaries and thefts from homeowners.  As a reminder, all residents are urged to make sure that their windows and doors are secured before going to bed for the evening since with cooler weather coming it is common to leave windows open and/or ajar.

Please remain vigilant by reporting any suspicious activities to the Belleville Police Department by calling 973-450-3334, or 911 if a crime is in progress.
