fullerton superior court

The North Justice Center is the primary location for all of the cases that branch out of the Fullerton Police Department. This courthouse is located in Orange County at 1275 N Berkeley Ave, Fullerton, CA 92832. Anybody that is arrested in the city of Fullerton will have to report to this courthouse for their court date to fight their case. However, this facility handles more than just criminal cases it also handles traffic, minor offenses, limited civil cases, and small claims cases.


The men and women that work at the North Justice Center must communicate properly together in order for everybody’s cases to move as efficiently as possible. Some of the departments that could be found in this facility include Appeals division, Civil division, Collections division, Criminal, Division, Family Court Services, Family division, Jury Services, Juvenile division, Small Claims division, and the Traffic and Infractions division. Each one of these department has its own set of work for each case that is sent to this courthouse.


If you have anything to do legally in the city of Fullerton, then you will have to come to this courthouse to handle it. The Fullerton Police Department relies heavily on this courthouse because all of their cases are sent here for prosecution, whether it is criminal or traffic. Safety is a big concern for everyone that has to work in a big building with a lot of traffic. Which is why you will notice that when you walk into the courthouse you will have to walk through a metal detector and be searched by an officer on duty. This is to protect everyone inside the courthouse at all times. Nobody is allowed to walk through the front doors with any type of weapon no matter how harmless it may seem.


The courthouse also has its very own police department inside for emergencies and the general security of the building. The police stationed at the courthouse run the security and are all officers that have been sworn in just like the officers outside the courthouse on patrol. Do not mistake them for regular security guards because they have all of the training of every officer out in the field and are prepared for any situation that may occur while the courthouse is open.


They will also supervise any inmate that has to travel to the North Justice Center for their court appearance from the Orange County Jail. The courthouse also relies on the community for its decision-making such as when people are called for jury duty. This is a chance for members of the community to contribute to the justice system by helping decide on a case and whether the person is guilty or not. The members of the courthouse urge people to visit this courthouse and become more familiar with it and how it works so that you could understand the justice system a little better.
