North Hanover Municipal Court

North Hanover Township shares its municipal court services with Chesterfield. This is due to the fact that both towns are fairly small in terms of population. New Hanover is home to roughly 8,000 residents, according to the most recent US census. Located in the north portion of Burlington County, North Hanover encompasses roughly 17 square miles, which include parts of McGuire Air Force Base. In the past 24 months alone, local and state police officers have issued roughly 900 criminal charges and 4,000 traffic and drunk driving violations. What is concerning is that from 2016 to 2017, there was a 60% increase in the number of charges and tickets issued. Clearly, the North Hanover Police have adopted stricter enforcement practices. With major roadways like Jacobstown Road and 537, you can expect that police will remain vigilant of commuter and local traffic.
