This week, the Camden County Police Department recognizes Officer Prince Reed who displayed courage and poise in the face of a life-threatening situation.
On the night of July 1, Officer Reed observed a suspicious vehicle. As Officer Reed investigated further, a subject drew a handgun and opened fire at Officer Reed with several rounds striking his car and a bullet fragment striking his arm. Officer Reed was able to drive away from the area under gunfire but returned to assist officers in the investigation while injured. Officer Reed was then taken to Cooper University Hospital and treated for his injury.
Detectives Mark Lee and Gordon Harvey led the investigation into this incident, and, along with the efforts of the entire Camden County Police Department Shooting Response Team and the U.S. Marshals, were able to quickly identify the suspect who shot Officer Reed. He was arrested on July 3 in Collingswood and has been charged with attempted murder and multiple weapons offenses.

The Camden County health officer has issued a heat alert for Camden County effective from noon until 7 p.m. today, and again from noon until 7 p.m. on July 30.
To avoid heat-related illness, the Camden County Department of Health and Human Services recommends the following:
- Avoid, as much as possible, working or playing in the hot sun or other hot areas. If you must be out in the sun, wear a head covering. A wide-brimmed hat or visor will not only protect your head from intense rays of the sun, it will also provide a shield for your eyes.
- Use air-conditioners and fans. Open windows to release trapped hot air.
- Those taking regular medication should consult with their physician. Some medications cause an adverse reaction in hot weather.
- Wear lightweight clothing.
- Drink plenty of non-alcoholic liquids, warm and cool. Because the body loses fluids in the heat, drinking lots of liquids helps to avoid dehydration.
- Maintain a normal diet.
- Shower or bathe in water that is near skin temperature.
- Do not leave older people, children or pets alone in cars.
- The early warning signs of heat stress are decreased energy, slight loss of appetite, faintness, light-headedness and nausea. People experiencing these symptoms should go to a cool environment, drink liquids, remove excess clothing and rest.
Serious signs of heat stress include unconsciousness, rapid heartbeat, throbbing headache, dry skin, chest pain, mental confusion, irritability, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle cramps, staggering and difficulty breathing. People experiencing these symptoms should get to immediate medical attention. While waiting for help, move the person to a cool area, remove excess clothing, spray with water, and fan the person. In an emergency, dial 911.July 29, 2015
