Chief Harry Earle

Harry is a proud lifelong resident of Camden County. Harry has consistently taken on leadership roles while dedicating his personal and professional life to learning how to help those affected by violence, addiction, lack of education, mental illness, and crime. He served thirty-two years with the Gloucester Township Police Department, including the last nine years as Chief of Police. He has served on several boards that have enabled him to create and implement sustainable systemwide changes in Camden County and beyond. These changes include the development of Project SAVE and creating a program that assists runaway youth and identified victims of sexual exploitation. Harry spearheaded the creation of the Family Resource Center in Gloucester Township where young people and their families can seek free professional mental health services. Harry has also developed a model where those being released on parole, probation, or have suffered a drug overdose are connected with the Camden County One Stop Career Center. Additionally, Harry led the effort in the passage of a formal IACP 2019 resolution calling on our law enforcement agencies internationally to better understand and develop responses to Adverse Childhood Experiences. Harry continues to give back to his community and work to effect positive change.
