The Adopt-A-Cop program originated in
London England and was started by the Metropolitan Police. The
program was started at Parkview during 1993 and has been active ever
The Voorhees Township Police adopted
this program in 2000. We adopted the third grade students at each
elementary school in Voorhees Township.
Each officer visits their school on a
monthly basis and discusses various safety topics and shows movies
staring McGruff the crime dog. This is an informal, voluntary
initiative for schools and our police department to foster trust,
encourage mutual respect and build healthy relationships.
