With a population of over 77,000 residents as of the 2010 United States Census, Camden is the 12th-most populous municipality in New Jersey. Unfortunately, Camden City is also often cited as one of the most dangerous cities in the country. Given this reputation, police officers are often on the lookout to make a DWI stop, sometimes as a pretext to see if a driver has an outstanding warrant. Officers must follow certain protocols when making a stop, such as having a reasonable and articulate basis to believe that a driver has violated the law. An allegation of an illegal stop is one way to challenge a DWI charge. The Camden Police Department and the New Jersey State Police have the authority to stop and arrest Camden residents for DWI offenses.
Throughout Camden County, almost 3,000 DWI citations are issued each year, which makes it the second-most cited county in the state. Camden City makes up about 25 percent of these citations. Camden residents are more likely to be stopped and charged with DWI than many other people in New Jersey, so they should be aware of their options and rights. For example, if the police failed to properly utilize the Alcotest device to test a driver’s BAC in a Camden stop, our DWI lawyers will be able to promptly identify this problem with the prosecution’s case and try to get the charge thrown out. Drivers are entitled to an attorney once they are arrested for DWI, and you should not hesitate to exercise this right.
