Waterford NJ Criminal Defense Attorney
Waterford is one of the least densely populated municipalities in Camden County (i.e. ranks 35th of 37) so you would tend to think that it does not have an abundance of criminal charges and traffic offenses. That certainly is not, however, the case in actuality. Members of the Waterford Police Department patrolling U.S. Route 30, Old White Horse Road, Chew Road and other roadways in the township had occasion to issue 6,389 motor vehicle tickets during the year ending May 2016. Another 884 complaints for disorderly persons offenses and 221 for first, second, third and fourth degree crimes were also issued over this period.
