Brian Munroe
Clerk of Courts

Brian Munroe, Bucks County Clerk of Courts

Brian Munroe has spent his adult life serving our community, and continued this commitment when he was sworn in as  Clerk of Courts on January 6, 2020. Brian, his wife, and their two daughters live in Warminster.

Brian became a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician at age 17. Three years later he enlisted in the United States Navy and served aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt during the Bosnia-Herzegovia conflict. Brian was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, the Southwest Asia Service Medal, the Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, the Navy Unit Commendation, the Armed Forces Medal, and the North America Treaty Organization Medal.

After his Navy service, Brian pursued a career in law enforcement, becoming a police officer in Radnor Township in 2001. He attained the rank of corporal, and, during his years of community policing, received commendations from Congressman Kurt Weldon and Mothers Against Drunk Driving. While on duty, Brian was involved in a severe car accident that ended his career after ten years of service.

With the Navy and his law enforcement work behind him, Brian decided to serve his community by being elected to a seat on the Warminster Township Board of Supervisors. In that role, he focused on open space, green development, and aligning the structure, staffing, and training of the police department with the safety needs of the community.

Brian’s history of putting people and community ahead of politics will continue as he serves Bucks County as the Clerk of Courts.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Clerk of Courts’ office is to efficiently maintain Court records and criminal case files and support the county judicial system and citizens by managing and directing the collection and disbursement of criminal case fines, fees and costs to victims of crimes and county and state agencies and government.

The primary responsibility of the Clerk of Courts is as the custodian of criminal court records and juvenile delinquency and dependency court records.

In 2020 the Bucks County Clerk of Courts implemented its’ Delinquency Recovery Program (DRiP) to collect unpaid court costs, fines, fees, and victim restitution that have not been paid. This innovative program has the potential to recover millions of dollars. Payment plans can be set up or reset to help those who owe on criminal cases.
