Union Beach, which only has a population of just over 6,000, sure is forced to deal with its fair share of crime. The Union Beach Municipal Court, which is located at 650 Poole Avenue, has original jurisdiction over all disorderly persons offenses (misdemeanor), borough ordinances and traffic offenses, including driving while intoxicated charges that occur within the borough’s borders. All indictable (felony) matters that occur within the borough’s borders must be transferred to the Monmouth County Superior Court, which is located in Freehold for disposition. Some of the most common disorderly persons offenses that Union Beach Municipal Court presides over each and every year include simple assault, possession of marijuana under 50 grams, disorderly conduct, harassment, resisting arrest and hindering apprehension. Although these offenses are not considered felony offenses, they are still considered crimes, and if convicted, a Defendant would be facing up to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine as well as being scarred with a criminal record. That is why we strongly suggest that if you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with a crime or traffic offense in Union Beach we strongly recommend that you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.

Union Beach Borough Municipal Court
Where is Union Beach Located?
Union Beach is a tiny little borough located in the northern-central region of Monmouth County. It is located directly on the coast and has direct views of the New York City Skyline as well as the Verazanno-Narrows Bridge. It covers just under two square miles and is home to just over 6,000 individuals. Although the borough is located directly on the coast, it is unlike most other boroughs located on the coast in Monmouth County, Union Beach is not considered a seasonal borough. In fact, the majority of the homeowners are year-round residents. That fact alone has a direct correlation on the number of arrest that occur within the Borough each and every year. In 2017 alone, the Borough arrested and charged nearly 100 individuals with DWI and more than 600 with criminal offenses.
