BCPO continues to operate during coronavirus pandemic
We want to assure the residents of Burlington County that the Prosecutor’s Office remains open, operational and available to the public and our law enforcement partners during this public health crisis.
Although the Burlington County administration building has been closed to the public, anyone requiring the attention of our Office can contact us though our general email address at Prosecutor@co.burlington.nj.us or by phone at 609-265-5035. The number will be staffed during regular business hours. For an emergency, dial 911.
Due to the closure to the public of the Burlington County Courts Facility, those seeking Temporary Restraining Orders and Extreme Risk Protective Orders should contact their local police department.
Please do not utilize Facebook to contact us about a crime. Crimes can continue to be reported online at Tips@co.burlington.nj.us.
For those needing help with domestic violence, Providence House Domestic Violence Services of Catholic Charities can be reached through a 24-hour hotline at 877-871-7551 or 609-871-7551.
“Although we will be operating with significantly reduced staff, all of our employees are deeply committed to our mission to serve justice and advance public safety in our county,” Prosecutor Scott Coffina said. “Please keep our police officers and other first responders in your prayers, as they do not have the benefit of ‘social distancing,’ and put their own health at risk to continue to come to our aid whenever we call them.”
The Burlington County Prosecutor’s office is committed to a standard of excellence in providing our citizens with the most effective and efficient investigation and prosecution of criminal offenders and providing innovative leadership for law enforcement. We will strive to enforce the laws fairly, impartially and justly while treating all victims of crime with compassion and dignity.
