Toms River Cuts the Ribbon on its New Courtroom

Absolutely breathtaking! Almost as big as a church! That’s the description offered by Toms River Mayor Tom Keleher when describing the Township’s new municipal courtroom that’s more than double the size of the previous courtroom.

Officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday to officially open the new Oak Street courtroom located adjacent to the police headquarters.

Keleher says the courtroom features state-of-the-art amenities. “We have a public address system, we have video conferencing, we even have a pneumatic piping system. So that when a case is disposed of the clerk sitting next to the judge can put all the paperwork in the tube and send it right to the Clerk’s office.”

He says they’ll also be enlarging the foyer outside the courtroom to make room for the public and metal detection screening equipment. He says they’ll also be completing conference rooms for the Township Prosecutor and Public Defender that will be located where the old courtroom used to be.

Keleher says the courtroom’s completion coincides with work being done at the same site to construct the new municipal animal shelter. He says the same contractor is building the shelter which should also be done in a few weeks.
