To Whom It May Concern,
My family and I live in GT. This is not my first letter of thanks to you, your officers, the school safety officers and your detectives, but I feel in light of recent circumstances, it needs to be said again.
My husband and I just want to say thank you for putting your lives on the line, endangering your own families, risking your family time… These things do not go unnoticed, as you keep our township safe. You work a thankless job that is difficult and face the unknown.
Two of my children went through the LEAD program. Officer Smith is fantastic! He is a fun, approachable and admirable officer who the children can relate to easily. My daughter, a winner of the poster contest, was so easily inspired to tell my younger children of safety traits learned in LEAD. She is already doing just as Officer Smith instilled in her: Leading! My older son, the same.
My younger son, he has always admired police, fire and other first responders. But when Officer Pierce stopped to play a game of baseball with him, he was in awe. Such a simple gesture that left a lasting impression.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for promoting a police department that is not only keeping us safe and informed but that is friendly, approachable and treats everyone like family. God bless you all every day and no matter what, you have the support of our town!
|Between July 14 to July 17, 2016 the Gloucester Township Police Department (GTPD) made three arrests for Driving While Intoxicated on various roadways within the Township of Gloucester as officers have stepped up road enforcement to help ensure safe summer travels. A fourth arrest was made when the driver was suspected of Driving While Intoxicated, however, the person was found to be sleep deprived, which can pose the same hazards to the public as an Intoxicated Driver. That motorist was charged with possession of marijuana. All of the subjects arrested were released to friends or family pending court time and dates.
The GTPD are reminding residents and visitors that they need to be responsible while enjoying summer festivities and driving a motor vehicle. The GTPD will continue to vigorously enforce laws relating to driving while impaired to help reduce the number of impaired driving injuries and deaths, with an emphasis on driving while impaired by either alcohol or drugs. “Drunk drivers not only put themselves in danger, but they threaten everyone who shares the roadway,” said Captain Anthony Minosse, the Support Services Division Commander for the GTPD
This morning Highland Regional High School employee Ms. Denise Wolf delivered several cookie and dessert trays of food on behalf of Principal Beth Petite and the entire Highland staff, to the men and women of the Gloucester Township Police Department. This show of support is greatly appreciated during these trying times for the law enforcement family.
