Municipal Court

If you were issued a citation by a Denton, UNT, or TWU Police Officer, that ticket was probably filed with the Denton Municipal Court for resolution. You have options for how you want to interact with the Court. You can view your case and resolution options online, talk with a Clerk about your options, or appear in Court to speak to the Judge on your scheduled date and time.

Jury Service

Did you receive a jury summons in the mail? Jury service is an important duty of citizenship. We attempt to make your service as convenient as possible. To assist us with ensuring jury selection runs smoothly for everyone, please complete the Online Juror Questionnaire by the Response Date on your jury summons. The online questionnaire does include an area to submit disqualifications and exemptions. 

Texts may be used to communicate additional information or even dismissal of service. So please make sure to provide us with a good, text-enabled phone number.
