The Roselle Municipal Court is considered a court of limited jurisdiction, having responsibility for motor vehicle and parking tickets, minor criminal-type offenses (for example, simple assault and bad checks), municipal ordinance offenses (such as dog barking or building code violations) and other offenses. Many serious criminal cases, such as robbery, auto theft, or assault, start out as complaints filed in the Municipal Court but those cases are transferred to the Superior Court located at the Union County Courthouse in Elizabeth.

Under the guidelines prescribed by both the New Jersey Rules of Court and the Administrative Office of the Courts, the Roselle Municipal Court is responsible for both the processing and disposition of all traffic summonses, criminal complaints and city ordinance violations cited within the Borough of Roselle.

Office of Emergency Management

Cesar Perez - cperez@boroughofroselle.comOffice of Emergency Managment

The Roselle Office of Emergency Management (OEM) in a mutual partnership with Police,  Fire, EMS, and other Borough Departments and in coordination with federal, state, county, and other local municipalities work to prepare for and respond to any man-made or natural hazard that may jeopardize life and property. The Roselle Office of Emergency Management is responsible for overseeing the borough’s Emergency Operating Plan (EOP) as one of the four phases of emergency management; mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Mitigation: Mitigation is the cornerstone of emergency management. It’s the continuing effort to lessen the impact disasters have on life and property. Mitigation is defined as “sustained action that reduces or eliminates long term risk to life and property from man-made or natural hazards and their effects.”

Preparedness: Preparedness takes the form of plans or procedures designed to save lives and minimize damage when an emergency occurs. Planning, training, and disaster drills are the essential elements of preparedness. These activities ensure that when a disaster strikes, emergency managers will be able to provide the best response possible. Disasters are caused by high winds, floods, releases of deadly chemicals, fires, ice storms, earthquakes, as well as other man-made or natural hazards. When disaster strikes, the best protection is knowing what to do.

Response: Response is defined as the actions taken to save lives and prevent further damage to property in a disaster or emergency situation. The response is putting preparedness plans into action. Response activities may include damage assessment, search and rescue, fire fighting, evacuation, and sheltering victims.

Recovery: Recovery is defined as the actions taken to return the community to normal following a disaster. Repairing, replacing, or rebuilding property are examples of recovery.
