This week, the Camden County Police Department recognizes the outstanding work of six officers whose restraint and teamwork helped peacefully resolve a potentially violent encounter – Sergeant Keith Henderson and Officers Christopher Devlin, Brian Cogan, Cabria Davis, Robert Mulligan and Timothy Miller.
Shortly before 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 9, Officers Davis and Cogan observed a male suspect who was acting in an aggressive manner toward employees and patrons at a restaurant at the corner of Broadway and MLK Boulevard. As the suspect exited the restaurant, the officers observed that he was holding a knife which he began to swing wildly. The officers ordered the suspect to stop and to drop the weapon but he ignored their orders and proceeded to walk south on Broadway.
The officers exercised tremendous restraint by calling for assistance while walking with the suspect to ensure the safety of others in the area. Officers Devlin, Mulligan and Miller and Sgt. Henderson also arrived on the scene and all of the officers worked together to surround and walk near the suspect to ensure that he could not harm anyone. After the deployment of a Taser, the suspect dropped the knife and the officers were able to secure the weapon and detain the suspect so that he could be sent to the hospital for a medical evaluation.
“I’m proud that these officers, facing a highly volatile situation, were able to show this level of restraint and resolve the situation peacefully,” said Captain Gabriel Camacho.
For demonstrating what it means to be ethical protectors of the community, we honor Sgt. Henderson and Officers Devlin, Cogan, Davis, Mulligan and Miller as Camden County Police Department Officers of the Week. Also nominated were Sergeant Victor Ortiz and Officers Joshua Soper and Matthew DiDomenico.November 27, 2015
In 2006, Camden lost one of its greatest police officers when Lt. Ron Conley passed away at the age of 40 from a brain tumor.
For years Ronnie would deliver food to the same homeless man on Thanksgiving night. Today, Ronnie and the homeless man he shared Thanksgiving with each year are both gone.
But Ronnie’s family and the police department have since continued the tradition over the past nine years keeping his spirit of generosity as an eternal part of all of us.
Last night, Officer Brandon Galloza assisted Lt. Conley’s daughter Taylor and his nephew Chris Oliver with feeding a few hungry souls on the streets of South Camden.

This week, the Camden County Police Department is proud to recognize three individuals who helped train and prepare officers from across South Jersey how to save lives – Officers William Stuart, Christopher Foley and Kenneth Egan.
Recently, Officers Stuart, Foley and Egan worked with expert trainers from the ALERRT (Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training) program to learn the techniques and protocols for how to quickly and effectively respond and save lives during active shooter scenarios.
Using what they had learned, the officers worked hand in hand with the ALERRT trainers to conduct exercises for dozens of members of local and federal law enforcement agencies from across South Jersey. Using a former school in Somerdale as the training location, Officers Stuart, Foley and Egan seamlessly ran through intense, lifelike training scenarios in which officers were asked to enter buildings and find and neutralize one or multiple armed shooters. The officers they instructed received invaluable, life-saving instruction through the ALERRT program – instruction that was expertly delivered by Officers Stuart, Foley and Egan.
For their hard work and dedication to ensuring the success of the ALERRT training exercises, we honor Officers Stuart, Foley and Egan as Camden County Police Department Officers of the Week. Also nominated were Officers Jason Diaz and Joshua Soper.November 5, 2015
