Galloway Municipal Court Information
Galloway is a township in Atlantic County, New Jersey that has a population of approximately 40,000 residents. As high as this number may be, it does not take into account the number of college students that have a temporary residence at Stockton University, the four-year liberal arts college located in the Pomona section of Galloway Township. In more recent years the city has become a hub for non-violent drug crimes such as marijuana possession, cocaine possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession with intent to distribute. Moreover, with over 250 miles of roadway– including the Garden State Parkway, Route 50, and U.S. Route 30 — Galloway’s heavy local and commuter traffic significantly contributes to motor vehicle stops and arrests. In the last year along, Galloway handed out over 7,000 motor vehicle tickets and 2,000 criminal charges. If you or someone you love are facing charges stemming from an arrest in Galloway for a disorderly persons offense, motor vehicle violation, or municipal ordinance then you will receive a summons to appear before the municipal judge in the Galloway Township Municipal Court.
