  • Voorhees Police Seek Fugitive for Aggravated Assault on Police Officers

    Posted on February 02, 2016 by Voorhees Police

    The Voorhees Police Department needs your help in locating fugitive Geoffrey Petit. Petit is wanted for the assault of a Voorhees Police Officer with his vehicle on 1/31/2016. Petit was fleeing an arrest for an outstanding warrant for the assault on a Voorhees Police Detective during a burglary investigation on 1/14/2016 and resisting arrest during that investigation. Petit also has warrants issued by the Moorestown Police Department for charges stemming from other burglaries that our Officer was also attempting to apprehend him for during the investigation on 1/31/2016. Thankfully, the Officer was not injured by the vehicle.

    Petit fled the scene of the attempted arrest in the parking lot of his residence, 119-3 Echelon Road, in a gray Ford Focus with Maryland plates 3BY9217 (similar to the one pictured below). The vehicle is an Avis rental car out of Mount Laurel. Petit is wanted on $100,000 full cash warrants out of Voorhees Township and $300,000 worth of warrants out of Moorestown. Petit should not be approached and should be considered dangerous.

    If you see Petit, the vehicle described, or know of his whereabouts, please contact the Voorhees Police Department at 856-428-5400 or via 9-1-1 in an emergency.

  • Voorhees Police announce Safe Exchange Zone

    Posted on November 17, 2015 by Voorhees Police

    Safe-Exchange-ZoneChief Louis Bordi and the Voorhees Police Department has established a “Safe Exchange Zone” in the front visitor parking lot of the Voorhees Police Administration Building, located at 1180 White Horse Road.  There is an area of sidewalk on the northeast corner of the visitor parking lot with yellow sidewalk markings and yellow signs marking the zone (photograph attached).  The marked area is video recorded by state of the art security cameras.  It should be noted that personnel are not in the police station at all times, thus it is recommended that the zones be used during normal business hours, Monday-Friday.  If this is not possible, the area is recorded and routinely patrolled.

    This zone has been set up as a courtesy to and for the protection of Voorhees Township residents involved in an online transaction such as a Craig’s List or Online Yard Sale purchase.  We do not endorse any service and only provide this area as an added layer of safety for those residents involved in online commerce.

    Voorhees Police officers will not intervene as witnesses, negotiators, or brokers.  Our officers and civilian staff members are not permitted to provide legal advice or become involved in civil matters resulting from disputes over payment, quality, etc.

    The exchange of any type of weapons, destructive devices, any illicit items, controlled dangerous substances, or controlled dangerous substance paraphernalia are not permitted on our property.
