The Detective Bureau is primarily responsible for conducting the follow up investigation of reported incidents occurring within the township. The Bureau is currently staffed by Detective Bob Youngs who is assigned to handle matters relating to adult and juvenile offenders.

Reported crimes, which may range from petty theft to homicide, are reviewed by the Detective Bureau for investigation based on several solvability factors with priority given to serious offenses. Our Detective strives to maintain a relationship with all members of the department, while also working closely with numerous municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies.

Additionally, the Detective encourages the sharing of appropriate information with members of the public. Many investigations are initiated as well as solved through this type of cooperative effort. Detective Youngs is typically available Tuesday thru Friday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. At all other times, the Detective is available through an “on-call” status to respond as needed.



Anyone with information relating to criminal activity within Andover Township  is urged to contact the Detective Bureau at (973) 383-5544 or email us at
