By State law, the police department can only release an impounded vehicle upon a showing of a valid driver’s license, vehicle registration, and auto insurance card. If you have those items in your possession, take them to the lobby of the Englewood Police Department located at 75 S. Van Brunt St, Englewood NJ 07631. An officer will give you a release form to bring to the tow yard. Once you present the release form and pay the standard towing fees, the tow truck company will release your car.
If your documents are inside the towed car, please call the Englewood Communications Center at 201-568-2700 to make arrangements on getting your documents.
If you cannot appear at police headquarters personally, you can designate a representative to pick up your vehicle release by indicating your permission in a notarized letter. Your representative must still present a valid driver’s license, vehicle registration, and insurance card with your notarized letter.
