Chief's Message

Lindenwold Police Department Logo

     Welcome to the Lindenwold Police Department website.  As the Chief of Police, I am honored to work with our officers and civilian staff to provide professional police services to the residents of Lindenwold.  It is our mission to ensure the safety and well-being of all those who live, work and play in the Borough of Lindenwold.  The Lindenwold Police Department provides police services to approximately 17,600 residents within 4 square miles.  The Borough of Lindenwold is also a regional transportation hub providing public transportation to Philadelphia and Atlantic City via the PATCO Speedline and NJ Transit Atlantic City Line.

     The Lindenwold Police Department has adopted a Community Policing Philosophy to serve the needs of our residents.  Community Policing is a comprehensive approach to public safety that focuses on building trust, community engagement, crime reduction, technology, policy development, and officer well-being.  We are proud of the strides we have made over the past several years to implement new community policing programs, and we look forward to building upon that success moving forward.  I invite you to partner with us in our effort to build a stronger relationship with the community to prevent crime and improve the quality of life in our community.
