  • 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.

  • Body Worn Cameras

    Posted on September 04, 2015 by Voorhees Police

    Body worn camera (BWC) as worn by members of our Criminal Investigations Bureau and plain-clothes officers.

    The Voorhees Police Department is proud to announce the implementation of body worn cameras for its Officers. The decision to research body worn cameras initiated back in April 2014, when Chief Bordi envisioned his Officers wearing body worn cameras. Voorhees Police has selected and deployed the Digital Ally FirstVu HD body worn cameras for its Officers. Specifically, we would like to thank the Voorhees Township Committee for all their support and funding for this project.

    The Voorhees Police Department prides itself on our transparency to the public. We believe that the use of these cameras will significantly benefit both the community and our officers. Officers will be able to document their point of view more accurately by reviewing the incidents for details rather than relying solely on memory recall. In addition, this added benefit will certainly enhance Officers preparation for court cases.

    Body Worn Cameras are certainly a powerful tool that can assist police and at the same time give the community a better understanding of what happened during an encounter. However, we know that no technology is a perfect answer to all situations, therefore cameras should not be considered the only source of detail recollection. Body-worn cameras do have limitations that need to be understood and considered when evaluating the recordings, however we believe the community and the officers who work to improve the quality of life here will benefit from their use. It’s a win-win for all involved.

    For added Officer accountability, supervisors also will be able to review the videos captured by the body cameras to assess how officers interact with citizens and, if necessary, tailor their training programs to improve how those officers work in the field.

  • Impaired Driving Enforcement Crackdown to be Conducted Locally as Part of National Campaign

    Posted on August 13, 2015 by Voorhees Police

    Law enforcement officers from the Voorhees Police Department will be cracking down on drunk drivers as part of the 2015 Labor Day Statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.  Beginning August 21 and running through September 7, local and state law enforcement officers will conduct sobriety checkpoints and roving patrols, looking for motorists who may be driving while intoxicated.

    “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” is a national campaign designed to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving through high-visibility enforcement and public education tools, including posters, banners and mobile video display signs. Launched across the U.S. in 1999, the program works to combat drunk driving during the busy summer travel season, including the Labor Day holiday period.

    “More than 10,000 people are killed in the United States each year in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, and these crashes cost our society nearly $50 billion annually,” said Gary Poedubicky, Acting Director of the Division of Highway Traffic Safety.  “There is a zero tolerance message for this campaign. If drivers are caught operating their vehicle while impaired they will be arrested.”

    In 2013 alcohol-impaired fatalities accounted for 27 percent of New Jersey’s motor vehicle fatalities. As part of the initiative, the Division of Highway Traffic Safety provides grants to local law enforcement agencies throughout the state to run the two-week campaign.

    Law enforcement agencies participating in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over 2015 crackdown offer the following advice:

    • If you plan to drink, designate a driver, someone who will not drink alcohol, before going out.
    • Take mass transit, a taxi or ask a sober friend to drive you home.
    • Spend the night where the activity is held.
    • Report impaired drivers to law enforcement.  In New Jersey, drivers may dial #77 to report a drunk or aggressive driver.
    • Always buckle up, every ride, regardless of your seating position in the vehicle.  It’s your best defense against an impaired driver.
    • If you’re intoxicated and traveling on foot, the safest way to get home is to take a cab or have a sober friend or family member drive you to your doorstep.
