LEAD clothing bin locations

The Monroe Township Police Department has partnered with LEAD (Law Enforcement Against Drugs) to bring clothing bins to our Township.  These bins give us money towards training our LEAD Instructors and money towards purchasing merchandise for our 6th grade LEAD students.  If you are able and willing please consider these clothing bins next time you donate your used clothing.  Monroe Township has three LEAD clothing bin locations;

Scammers are using fake phone numbers that come up on caller ID as “Monroe Twp NJ” to contact residents within Monroe Township. The callers are posing as a third-party energy company offering refunds.  At first look it appears that you are receiving a phone call from the Township of Monroe when in fact it is a scam.  Upon answering the phone, the call is answered by an automatic recording offering a 30% discount on your gas and electric bill.  If interested in this offer, the recording advises the resident to press “1”. Upon pressing “1”, the resident is then connected to a live person with a heavy accent. The individual then asks for your zip code and once provided; they congratulate you on your eligible for a 30% discount. They then request that you provide them with your PSEG, JCP&L or energy provider account number.


Attention: Monroe Township dog and cat owners

Monroe Township Animal Control is requesting all residents to license their dogs and cats with the Township Clerk’s Office.  In accordance with Chapter 33 of the Monroe Township Code ALL cats and dogs must be licensed with the Township.  The purpose of this portion of the Code is to ensure our animal population does not pose a threat to the health and safety of our residents and that they are properly vaccinated against rabies.

*Animal Control is picking up too many dogs that have no license on.  If the dog accidentally gets off your property, Animal Control will be able to reunite your furry family member back home right away since they carry a list of all dog and cat owners.  When Animal Control comes across a dog/cat that has no license and they are unable to locate the owner of the dog/cat the animal must be transported to the animal shelter for safe keeping.

All RENEWAL forms for dogs and cats need to be sent to the Township Clerk’s Office.  If you do NOT have your renewal form(s) you can print out the PDF for the dog/cat license application from the Township Website.

*Please keep in mind that, for this year ONLY, since the Township was closed to the public due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Township has waived the $10.00 late fee.

*For residents that own dog(s) and cat(s) the license fee’s need to be paid separately for accountability purposes.
