(Pennsauken) A Camden County-Municipal Public Safety Partnership forum was held to help municipalities further support the security of the communities they serve and make a collective impact on matters of public safety on May 8th at the Camden County Boathouse.
A discussion was facilitated on the findings from the 2016-2017 Community Public Safety Needs Assessment with municipal and county elected officials along with the public safety community.
“The safety and security of the residents of Camden County is a priority for us all, and it is important that this multijurisdictional conversation take place,” said Freeholder Jonathan Young, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Safety and Office of Emergency Management. “There more we discuss this important topic, and the more we plan on every level of government, the more prepared we will be for any emergency.”
The event was geared to enhance collaboration around the priorities, gaps and opportunities for law enforcement, homeland security mass gatherings, public safety agencies and local businesses.
