The Englewood Municipal Court has jurisdiction over all traffic matters that occur within the boundary of the City of Englewood, as well as all disorderly persons offenses and City ordinance violations. It has all the functions, powers, duties and jurisdictions conferred upon municipal courts by the provisions of N.J.S.A 2A:8-1.
The Englewood Municipal Court Administrator is responsible for:
Private citizens can pursue their own complaints. A police complaint is pursued by the Municipal Prosecutor. The Violations Bureau is where fines are paid in person or through the mail. If the charge(s) on your summons and complaint can be taken care of without a Court appearance, the summons should be marked with the amount of the fine listed. These are mostly traffic offenses. Certain traffic offenses are not payable and the defendant must appear in Court. If you pay by mail, you must sign the front of the ticket indicating you are pleading guilty to the charge(s). Please make checks payable to the City of Englewood Municipal Court.
Englewood Municipal Court proceedings are governed by City ordinances, court rules and State statutes. Court employees are not allowed to give legal advice, but will be happy to answer procedural questions.
