Developmental Disability Registry

Crisis Communication

The Livingston Police Department has a registry for individuals with developmental disabilities who may have difficulty communicating with emergency personnel. Participation in the registry is voluntary and all information is strictly confidential, and will only be used to better serve our residents in emergency situations. 

If the individual is involved in a crisis situation, officers will have information about the individual’s needs. This registry may also be used if a registrant becomes lost in the community so that an officer will have the individual’s emergency contact information. Individuals may be registered if they reside in Livingston, attend school in town, work in town or receive services at a day program in town.


An individual may withdraw from the program at any time. The registration form collects information of which a caregiver thinks the police department should be aware. This information will be entered into our dispatch system and allow us to provide better service. Registration may be completed by a disabled individual or a person with legal guardianship/power of attorney for an individual. 


After completing the required Application Form (PDF), you may drop it off at police headquarters to the attention of the Community Policing Unit or send it via email. You may also contact the Community Policing Unit at 973-992-3000, ext. #3600 with any questions regarding the program. 

We also request that a current photo of the individual be brought with the registration form or sent via email. Once registered, please ensure that pertinent information is kept current by contacting the Community Policing Unit with any changes.
