Collingswood PD receives Attorney General's Excellence in Policing Award

The Collingswood Police Department was recognized with the Attorney General's Excellence in Policing Award for Outstanding Community Partnership on Dec. 4.

In September, the Borough Board of Commissioners approved the formation of a Chief’s Advisory Committee as a way to further connect with the community in a way that allows for more communication, trust, transparency and mutual respect. 

The advisory committee is devoted to assisting the Police Chief and other members of the Police Department in providing the Police Chief with community responses to proposed police programs, directly advising the Police Chief of the community’s needs, assisting in community education regarding police department initiatives and programs; and participating, as appropriate, in training with designated Police Department personnel.

Says Collingswood Police Chief Kevin Carey, "I am extremely thankful for the continued unwavering support of the Mayor and Commissioners.  They not only approved the formation of the Chief’s Advisory Committee, but jumped right in to help get things off the ground.  We are all equally committed to the community we swerve and excited to see how this committee will flourish.
