Forty-eight new police officers will be joining the proud men and women of the Camden County Police Department this morning (Friday, April 20th). These officers have committed themselves to becoming guardians for their respective neighborhoods and the overall Camden community. After the swearing-in ceremony, officers will be deployed directly into the neighborhoods of the city to introduce themselves to residents’ house by house.
“Many of these officers will be deployed to the streets of Camden to become part of a nationally recognized model of policing that is increasing services and safety for the region while stabilizing the city,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Our number one priority is to keep the residents of Camden County safe. These new police officers will make a tremendous impact in our County Seat, and by doing so are making Camden County a safer place to live for all residents.”
