Gloucester Township Police Community Event: Spring Kickoff 2015!
After a long, cold winter we are all ready to forget about winter and welcome in the Spring. The first day of Spring is Friday March 20th and the GTPD is encouraging our residents to partner with the GTPD Community Relations Unit, LEAD Officers, RSRO Officers and McGruff the Crime Dog to welcome spring in with a celebration at Vet’s Park next to the Gloucester Township Municipal Building, 1261 Chews Landing Road Blackwood, NJ, from 4 PM to 6 PM.
In a symbolic effort to welcome Spring and also help those in need, the GTPD is requesting residents to bring new, unused socks which will be donated to those in need. The GTPD RUMBLEBEE Vehicle will be the primary drop off spot.
We look forward to seeing everyone there!
