The New Jersey Supreme Court ordered the New Jersey Attorney General to investigate the police departments of the townships of Bellmawr and Barrington, suspected of "ticket fixing". The investigation showed that in Bellmawr, Police Chief Edward Garrity, a police officer, and a court clerk were involved and in Barrington, three police officers were involved in fixing tickets.

Before being questioned all the employees are warned of the following:
• Anything said may be used in a criminal proceeding;
• The privilege existed to refuse to answer if the answer would tend to be self-incriminatory;
• Refusing to answer would cause a removal from their office.
