Any event where 500 people or more, Jersey City Police Department presence is required. Officers will also be required for traffic control if there will be a large number of pedestrians that are expected to share roads with vehicles. If a party is requesting police presence, they will bear the cost of the request. The Off Duty Office within the Jersey City Police Department can provide estimates which can be used to calculate any associated costs.

Please note, the City of Jersey City will only approve requests with a valid certificate of insurance uploaded to the request and will approve requests on a quarterly basis:
• Q1: January-March
