Officers of the Week – Christina Rivera and Sherrod Patterson

Posted on by CCPD

This week, the Camden County Police Department is proud to recognize Officers Christina Rivera and Sherrod Patterson for their outstanding work in the community.

Rivera joined the Camden County Police Department in 2013 and is assigned to the Neighborhood Response Team in the 2nd District while Patterson joined the department in 2016 and is assigned to the Neighborhood Response Team Central.

On March 14, 2017, the city and surrounding community experienced a major winter storm. As a result of the snow and wind, many residents in Fairview were left without electricity and some had trouble getting out of their homes. Officers Rivera and Patterson went door-to-door as part of Operation Guardian that day checking on residents, informing those who needed it about the warming center at Malandra Hall and assisting residents in clearing ice and snow from their driveways and sidewalks.

Officers Patterson and Rivera went above and beyond that in helping residents and for their outstanding effort, they are deserving of recognition as Camden County Police Department Officers of the Week. Also nominated were Officers Bernardo Segarra and Joel Troncoso and Officers Frankie Thompson and Shane Heisler.

This week, the Camden County Police Department is recognizing a group of officers for their restraint and dedication to making the city safer – Officers Brian Cogan, Anthony Berg, Zachary Goess, Joseph Miller, Damien Guanchez and Devin Henry.

All six officers, assigned to the department’s Neighborhood Response Team, worked together and utilized de-escalation techniques to apprehend armed suspects without incident and remove dangerous illegal firearms from the community.

On March 3, 2017, Officers Goess and Miller were on directed patrol when they observed a traffic infraction and conducted a motor vehicle stop at the corner of 8th Street and Carl Miller Boulevard. Upon stopping, a front-seat passenger immediately exited the car and ran from the area. Officer Goess chased the suspect on foot and was able to apprehend him after a brief pursuit without incident. He was found to be in possession of a 9mm Ruger handgun. The driver of the vehicle also tried to run from the scene and Officer Miller was able to chase him on foot for several blocks and apprehend him without incident. He was found to be in possession of a quantity of heroin and marijuana and placed under arrest.

On March 5, 2017, Officers Cogan and Berg responded to a Shotspotter activation in the area of 220 South Broadway and, upon arriving at the scene, observed a female suspect running from the area then getting into a car. Officers Cogan and Berg conducted a motor vehicle stop and found that the woman was in possession of a loaded Bryco Arms 9mm handgun, a stun gun and a quantity of marijuana. The officers placed her under arrest without incident.

And on March 7, 2017, Officers Henry and Guanchez responded to a Shotspotter activation in the area of Yorkship Square. After arriving on the scene, they were able to quickly investigate and obtain information about one of the suspects involved in the incident and his vehicle. After then observing this suspect nearby, Officers Henry and Guanchez approached him and were able to place him under arrest without incident. He was found to be in possession of a .357 revolver and was charged accordingly.

For acting quickly and intelligently with restraint to apprehend these armed suspects, we honor Officers Cogan, Berg, Goess, Miller, Henry and Guanchez as Camden County Police Department Officers of the Week.
