Court Departments


A municipal court has many departments, some of which you may come into contact with while using the Court’s services.

The Clerk of Courts is responsible for overseeing the general operation of the Court. The Clerk’s Office is broken down into several divisions, each with a specific function within the Court. Most people come into contact with one of these departments: Civil division; Criminal Division; or the Traffic Division. These divisions are staffed by deputy clerks.

Additionally, the Court is supported by the Assignment Department, a Bailiff’s Department; Magistrates and a Probation Department.

While any of the various departments should be able to point you in the right direction if you have need of assistance, this section is designed to help you locate the best starting point for any inquiry.
