Ocean County Municipalities
Ocean County is part of the New York Metropolitan area, but it is actually located in Southern New Jersey. With its abundance of beaches and proximity to several states, it is a popular summer destination for residents of New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey. The downside to this coastal paradise is that the influx of carefree people during the summer months also makes Ocean County a common place to be arrested for misconduct including DUI/DWI, indecent exposure, urinating in public, or destruction of property.
When a person is arrested for a minor offense, their case is presented in the municipal court located in the municipality where the arrest occurred. The following towns in Ocean County each have a municipal court: Barnegat Light, Barnegat, Bay Head, Beach Haven, Beachwood, Berkeley, Eagleswood, Harvey Cedars, Island Heights, Jackson, Lacey, Lakehurst, Lakewood, Lavallette, Little Egg Harbor, Long Beach, Manchester, Mantoloking, Ocean Gate, Ocean, Pine Beach, Point Pleasant, Point Pleasant Beach, Seaside Heights, Stafford, Seaside Park, Ship Bottom, South Toms River, Surf City, Toms River and Tuckerton.
More serious charges are not heard in municipal court, but are brought in county court. For more information on charges in county court, visit my Ocean County Courthouse page.
