Message from the Chief

  Welcome to the website of the Lumberton Township Police Department.

I am proud and honored to be the Chief of the Lumberton Township Police Department.  The members of the police department who serve along with me are committed to the highest level of service to the Township of Lumberton and everyone we come into contact with.  We do this by adhering to our core set of values that include integrity, honesty, fairness, respect and compassion.  We demand more of each other and that is what sets the Lumberton Township Police Department apart from others.

 

 

While it is our fundamental duty to protect and serve and uphold and enforce the Constitution of the United States and the State of New Jersey, I realize that the police department has many other obligations to its citizens. As you will see from our website, the Lumberton Township Police Department is multi faceted and performs many functions besides traditional Law Enforcement Services.

 

The Patrol Division is highly trained and well educated.  The uniformed officers, patrolling the township in marked vehicles, all have the basic training necessary to be an effective police officer and in addition are trained in the latest updates in local, state and federal case law.  They have additional training in interviewing crime victims and interrogating suspects, arresting drunk drivers, conducting Identity Theft Investigations, and responding to calls of immediate violent threats against our residents, business owners or schools.

 

Crime prevention and education has been one of the primary focuses of my 23-year career with the Lumberton Township Police Department and I understand the value to the community in savings lives, preventing injuries and educating our children to make good choices.  That is why the Lumberton Township Police Department maintains a Community Police Unit staffed with well educated officers trained in a multitude of programs such as Child Passenger Safety and Car Seat Installation, Gang Education and Recognition, School Resource Officers, Crime Prevention and Traffic Engineering.  The Community Police Unit is available to assist any organization, school or neighborhood with any type of Law Enforcement Education Program they desire.  The Community Services Unit is also responsible for our annual National Night Out Program and Bicycle Rodeo as well as Operation Take Back (prescription medication).

 

While the patrol division is the most visible division of the police department, the Detective Bureau sometimes performs the most important function of our job, investigating serious and sometimes violent crimes and arresting the suspects.  Our detectives are also highly trained and educated in the latest law enforcement investigative techniques.  The detective’s responsibility is to continue an investigation of a large scale incident or violent crime, interview witnesses, collect evidence, interrogate suspects, write a comprehensive report and forward it to the justice system for prosecution.

 

As the chief of police I am committed to maintaining a police department that continues to provide a high level of service to the community.  I would encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns or would just like to comment on your experience with the members of the Lumberton Township Police Department.

THEFTS FROM AUTOS

One of the most common types of theft is theft of valuables from your automobile.  To help ensure your auto is not targeted by thieves here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Lock Your Vehicle.  Always lock your car and take the keys, whether you’re parking in a public lot or in your driveway- lock it up.
  2. Keep Your Valuables Out of Sight.  Take these items with you, or secure them out of sight in your trunk, if you have one, if not place them under the seat or in a locked glove compartment. 
  3. Secure Your GPS Device.  While many GPS devices are mounted in the dashboard of the vehicle, we encourage anyone who uses a portable GPS device to take it with you, along with any other items of value, when you park the car.
  4. Remember: “Outta sight, outta mind” – if thieves can’t see your valuables, they’re less likely to waste their time targeting your auto.  Take time to secure your valuables; it makes a diference.

PEDESTRIAN SAFETY

  1. Use sidewalks where provided.
  2. Where no sidewalks are provided, walk facing traffic.
  3. When crossing the street used a marked crosswalk when possible, otherwise cross at an intersection.
  4. Use extra caution when crossing multiple-lane higher speed streets.
  5. Make eye contact with drivers when crossing busy streets.  Don’t count on the driver to be paying attention.
  6. Make it easy for drivers to see you- dress in light colors or reflective material.  Carry a flashlight in very dark areas.
