GTPD Crime Suppression Operation Leads To Several Shoplifting Arrests at Gloucester Premium Outlets

On Thursday June 28, 2018 the Gloucester Township Police Operations Response Units (ORU) and the Retail Patrol Officer conducted a joint operation at the Gloucester Premium Outlets to help ensure the safety of merchants and shoppers.  Officers were positioned at the Gloucester Premium Outlets utilizing varying deployment strategies including high visibility uniformed patrol, officer bicycle patrol, and plain clothes undercover officers. During the course of this operation a total of five (5) shoplifters were arrested who stole merchandise from eight stores within the Gloucester Premium Outlets.

This initiative serves as another example of how the Gloucester Township Police Department has reduced overall crime by 34% and violent crime by 53% since 2010 while also clearly sending a message that such criminal activity will not be tolerated in Gloucester Township.
