Frequently Asked Questions

The purpose of this section is to answer those questions that frequently arise in the daily work of the Glen Rock Police Department.

If you are looking for more information, please contact us under the ‘Contact Us’ link in the top-right corner.

Who do I call to report problems with neighbors regarding property and/or zoning disputes?
Any civil disputes of this nature should be referred to the borough zoning or engineering department at (201) 670-3965. The police department does not normally become involved in these types of civil matters.

Does the Police Department concentrate on certain roadways where speeding vehicles are a problem?
The police department’s Traffic Division handles these type of complaints. Police units are frequently assigned to enforcement details in locations where traffic problems are known to exist, and also in response to specific complaints. If you become aware of any traffic safety problems, please refer them to the traffic division, P.O. Scott McGovern (201) 670-3946 Ext. 8130.

Do I need a permit to have a garage sale?
No, a permit is not required. However, as a reminder, you are not permitted to post signs on telephone poles, borough shade trees, or street signs, nor are you permitted to place flyers on windshields of vehicles in parking lots. The only form of advisement permitted is an ad in the newspaper.  Please contact the Glen Rock Borough Offices at (201) 670-3965 during regular business hours if you have any questions.
