Child Safety Seat Program

The Neptune City Police Department would like to inform residents of a special service that is offered by the department. To date, the department has one trained child safety seat technician who will gladly assist parents and guardians with child seat inspection and installation. The seat will also be cross referenced with a manufacturer recall list to ensure that the seat is safe. Officers will also provide helpful information regarding seat belts, LATCH systems, air bags and much more.

If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call Sergeant Janell Pyzik at (732) 455-0128 or e-mail at [email protected].

The NJ State Police provide this service as well.  Visit www.njsp.org

There shall be no fee charged to the Borough of Neptune City for the towing of any borough vehicle within five (5) miles.

Where passenger vehicles, including mopeds and motorcycles, are stored prior to reclamation by the owner, the fee shall be twenty-five dollars ($25.) per day to begin at midnight on the first day.

Where the owner of a vehicle requests a wrecker for a service call, on a vehicle not to be towed, the charge for this service shall not exceed the Borough of Neptune City rates for towing.

The above fees apply to passenger vehicles, mopeds, motorcycles, and small trucks under ten thousand (10,000) pounds.

Any vehicle over ten thousand (10,000) pounds or requiring special facilities and/or equipment (buses, tractor-trailers, large or oversized vehicles, etc.) will require arrangement between the owner or driver and the wrecker operator.

If a vehicle is towed by the Neptune City Police Department for violations of NJ motor vehicle laws, the vehicle will only be released to the owner by the Neptune City Police after receiving proper insurance information. The Neptune City Police will release the vehicle only when the proper information is obtained. The vehicle will be released by the tow company after the owner obtains the release in writing from the shift supervisor.
