Our telephone number is 856-728-9800 extension 500. Our mailing address is Monroe Township Municipal Court, 125 Virginia Ave., Williamstown, NJ 08094. This court will handle, to conclusion, all traffic matters, local ordinance violations, and disorderly persons offenses. Any indictable charges will be referred to the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office for their review. If the County Prosecutor decides to hear the matter, the case will be presented to a Grand Jury. In the event the Prosecutor’s Office declines to prosecute the case, the case will be remanded to this court to be scheduled for disposition.
If you wish to file a criminal or traffic complaint you must come directly to our office during regular business hours to complete the necessary paperwork. Any complaint made, will be accepted for filing. The determination of probable cause to actually issue a complaint will depend on the facts presented. Please keep in mind, the court staff cannot rend legal advice, only an attorney licensed to do so can offer advice. If you need assistance with what charge to pick, you may ask a police officer, lawyer, the municipal prosecutor, or the county prosecutor. Court staff will help you navigate the process. There is no charge to file a complaint.
