Posted on by CCPD

The Camden County Police Department is proud to recognize Officer Brenda Santiago as the newest department Officer of the Week.

Officer Santiago joined the Camden County Police Department a year and a half ago after previously working five years for the U.S. Department of Defense. She is assigned to the 4th District Neighborhood Response Team.

On July 16, Officer Santiago responded to an EMS call on the 2000 block of Ferry Avenue where a man had fallen down and was not breathing after suffering a heart attack. Officer Santiago immediately helped render aid and took over doing chest compressions when one of the EMTs needed to get additional equipment from the ambulance. The victim was then transported to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital for treatment.

“In my twenty-seven years as an EMT, I’ve never seen an officer jump into action and perform chest compressions; job well done,” EMT Christopher Williams said of Officer Santiago’s actions.

“Officer Santiago’s quick action, quick thinking and willingness to get involved to try to save a man’s life demonstrates the kind of officer she is,” Lt. Scott Bagby said.

For her outstanding work, we honor Officer Santiago as Camden County Police Department Officer of the Week. Also nominated were Officers Anthony Aceto and Kevin Stanicki and Officers Matthew Kreidler and Kyle Pesce.

Fire hydrant safety

Posted on by CCPD

It is illegal to open fire hydrants for recreational use and doing so can significantly reduce water pressure, meaning that firefighters trying to control a fire in another neighborhood may not have enough water and home and businesses may experience a loss of water pressure.

Prying open hydrants can damage the hydrants so that firefighters cannot use them later. Opening hydrants can also create a high pressure blast of water that can injure the person opening the hydrant and anyone standing nearby, particularly small children. Open hydrants also create unsafe conditions for drivers and pedestrians.

Camden residents who see an illegally opened fire hydrant should immediately report it to police by calling our tip line at (856) 757-7042 or dialing 911.
