To obtain these records you will need a government-issued identification (ID) with a picture that reflects your current physical address. Or you will need to provide 2 forms of identification with current physical address that is dated within the last 90 days.

To mail in your request, write to:

Please submit copies of your ID with your request and a check or money order for the correct amount along with correctly identifying the record and a return address. Make checks payable to City of Long Branch.
