Municipal Court

Mission Statement

We are an independent branch of government constitutionally entrusted with the fair and just resolution of disputes in order to preserve the rules of law and to protect the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America and this State.


The municipal court is a local court created by state law, whose territory is confined to the borough or community in which it is located. Practice and procedures are governed by New Jersey Court Rules. The Municipal Court judge is responsible for overseeing the administration of his or her Municipal Court. 

More serious offenses, known as indictable offenses, are sent to the County Prosecutor's Office. The County Prosecutor decides whether to present the case to a Grand Jury or to return the case to the Municipal Court as a less serious offense (a downgrade).
