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. I am a lifelong resident of Lumberton Township and I have seen the town grow from having just the FL Walther School now having 4 schools. 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 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. We strongly believe in supporting our community and going above and beyond in supporting the youth in Lumberton Township.
The Patrol Division is highly trained and well educated.
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, 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, Popsicle with the Police, Coffee with a Cop, Cookie with a Cop, Bicycle Rodeo, Police Trading Card Program, Annual Christmas Toy Drive 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 our 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.
