Chief of Police
The primary function of the Camden County Park Police (856-309-0006) is the protection of life and property within the Camden County Park system. This system consists of over 4,700 acres of parkland and waterways spread throughout 15 municipalities. They also patrol the Lakeland Hospital Complex in Blackwood and the County Communications complex in Lindenwold.
The police handle thousands of calls each year, ranging from minor incidents to major crimes. They are also responsible for traffic control and enforcement along more than 30 miles of roadway that run through the park system. Major events include the annual 4th of July celebrations at both Cooper River Park and Wiggins Park along with the numerous concerts held at both locations. Because of their countywide police powers, the County Park Police are often called upon to assist municipal police when the need arises.
At this time, the department consists of 16 sworn officers, dedicated to providing 8:00am to 8:00pm patrol coverage for the citizens of our county, after which the local municipality where the park is located is responsible for patrolling. The main headquarters is located in Lindenwold at the Camden County Communication Complex 2311 Egg Harbor Rd, Lindenwold, NJ 08021. They also employ the use of three sub-stations, one on the Human Services complex in Lakeland another in Cooper River Park in Pennsauken and the third at Wiggins Waterfront Park, located in Camden City.
