Camden County Police
Haddon Township Police Chief Mark Cavallo says authorities were tipped off to possible prostitution at the Sunrise Massage Parlor on Haddon Avenue by other local businesses.
Camden County took control of the Camden City police force this week, but no other municipality in the county has stepped up to join what is the first county police force of its kind in New Jersey.
Camden Mayor Dana Redd has filed the formal paperwork to dissolve the city’s police department and replace it with a force run by Camden County within a matter of months.
The move toward the formation of a Camden County police department, with the City of Camden its sole participant, continues with word that the city’s mayor is working on a plan to lay off the city’s entire police force as soon as the end of the year.
The “show cause” hearing before Judge Daustino Fernandez-Vina pitted opponents of the regionalized police force against those in favor of it, including Camden mayor Dana Redd.
The Camden city clerk will be presented this afternoon with a petition calling for a voter referendum on plans to convert the city’s police force into one under the control of Camden County.
John Timoney, now a Miami-based public safety consultant, has laid out a plan that increases on-street staffing within the City of Camden — the only community to sign up for the proposed force so far — by over 80 percent.
The changes could come as soon as the end of this year. The police union is considering legal action.
