Domestic Violence Central Registry
The Judiciary, through its Family Automated Case Tracking System has developed the Domestic Violence Central Registry which is a database that allows law enforcement to access the Central Registry for both domestic violence law enforcement and firearms licensing purposes.
In February 1999, the Central Registry became operational in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Middlesex and Monmouth Counties. The roll-out of the installation of the Central Registry continues to all counties and statewide installation may be concluded as early as December 1999. The development of the Central Registry was a cooperative effort between federal funding, the courts, state and local law enforcement agencies with input from the Attorney General's Office, Prosecutors and others. The Registry is accessible to all Superior Court, Family Part personnel and law enforcement officers.
