Officers of the Week – Christopher Devlin and Eric Surrency

Posted on by CCPD

This week, the Camden County Police Department recognizes the outstanding police work of two officers – Eric Surrency and Christopher Devlin.

Officer Devlin joined the Camden County Police Department in 2013 after previously serving as an officer in Belmar. Officer Surrency joined the department after graduating from the Camden County College Police Academy in December. Both officers are assigned to the Neighborhood Response Team in the city’s 1st District.

On Jan. 12, shortly after 12:30 a.m., Officers Devlin and Surrency stopped a car near the corner of Broadway and Royden Street after observing a driving infraction. After approaching the vehicle and engaging the driver, the officers observed the passenger in the vehicle not wearing a seat belt. The passenger then proceeded to provide officers with a false name. Through their investigation, Officers Devlin and Surrency were able to determine the passenger’s real name and recognize her as a suspect wanted for attempted murder in connection with a December incident.

“This was an outstanding arrest that happened because Officers Devlin and Surrency were proactive in addressing a violation and took intelligent actions to determine the identity of a violent fugitive,” said Lt. Felix Rivera.

For removing a dangerous offender from the community, we recognize Officers Devlin and Surrency as Camden County Police Department Officers of the Week.

Officers of the Week – Trocchio and Palmer

Posted on by CCPD

The Camden County Police Department is proud to recognize two officers who demonstrated their compassion and commitment to serving the community – Officers Louis Trocchio Jr. and Alexander Palmer.

Officer Trocchio joined the Camden County Police Department in 2013 after previously serving six years with two other police departments. Officer Palmer joined the Camden County Police Department in 2014 after previously serving as a police aide. Both are assigned to the Patrol Division in the city’s 2nd District.

On Dec. 16, Officers Trocchio and Palmer responded to a home in the Centerville neighborhood where a mother called police after discovering that her home had been burglarized. The victim reported that numerous Christmas presents she had bought for her young children were stolen along with electronics, cash and other items from the home. Officers Trocchio and Palmer felt compelled to help the victim, so each contributed money to buy the mother a gift card to help her replace some of the stolen presents for her kids.

“These officers showed great kindness and went above and beyond the call of duty to help a family in need,” said Lt. Zsakhiem James.

We honor Officers Trocchio and Palmer as Camden County Police Department Officers of the Week.

Snowstorm road safety

Posted on by CCPD

With significant snow in the forecast this weekend, remember that the best way to be safe on the road is to not drive if you do not need to. And if roads are declared closed during the snowstorm it will be illegal to drive during those periods.

If roads are not closed but conditions remain dangerous but you must drive somewhere, follow these tips to drive safely and avoid getting stuck or losing control of your vehicle:

- Make sure your tires are properly inflated.

- Clear all snow and ice from your windshield, windows and roof of the car before driving to ensure proper visibility while driving and to not risk the safety of other drivers.

- Do not use cruise control on wet or icy roads.

- Keep your gas tank at least half full.

- Drive slowly and allow at least 8-10 seconds of reaction time between you and the next vehicle.

- Accelerate and decelerate slowly to avoid sliding.

- Slowly approach red lights to be able to continue moving when the light turns green.

- Don’t try to power up hills by quickly accelerating which will end up with your wheels spinning. Instead try to build up inertia before going uphill and using the momentum to carry your vehicle up.

Officers of the Week – Virginia Matias and Sandro Reyes

Posted on by CCPD

The Camden County Police Department is proud this week to recognize the efforts of two officers who helped ensure the safety of elderly and disabled residents – Officers Virginia Matias and Sandro Reyes.

Officer Matias grew up in Camden and joined the Camden County Police Department in 2013. She is assigned to the Neighborhood Response Team in the city’s 1st District. Officer Reyes also grew up in Camden and, after serving 15 years in the U.S. Navy, joined the Camden County Police Department in 2014. He is assigned to the Neighborhood Response Team in the city’s 3rd District.

On Jan. 5, 2015, the city experienced a blast of frigid winter weather that triggered a Code Blue emergency alert. The Camden County Police Department responded through its Operation Guardian – checking on the well being of elderly and disabled residents throughout the city. Officers Matias and Reyes spent the day on Operation Guardian going door-to-door in North Camden and Lanning Square. They checked in with residents to make sure their heat was working and that they had everything they needed to endure the cold weather.

“Residents were happy to see our officers and thanked them for coming out to make sure they were safe and secure,” said Lt. Felix Rivera.

For going above and beyond to serve as guardians in the community and put Service Before Self, we honor Officers Matias and Reyes as Camden County Police Department Officers of the Week.
