As we move into 2018, the Lindenwold Police Department remains focused on developing and maintaining partnerships within the community.  As part of our partnership with the Lindenwold School District, we began a School Resource Officer program (SRO) in 2016.  Ptlm. Andy Tweedley is assigned to the borough’s high school, but also teaches the Law Enforcement Against Drugs program (L.E.A.D.) at Lindenwold Middle School.  Ptlm. Tweedley also conducts regular security checks at the elementary and pre-schools.

In keeping with our philosophy to become better connected to our residents, we maintain a presence on social media outlets Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.  We use these outlets along with Nixle to keep our residents aware of significant arrests, community events, and road closures caused by construction.  While we appreciate your feedback and input when following us on social media, you should be aware that the accounts are not monitored 24 hours a day.  You should refrain from using social media to report crimes in progress, suspicious persons, or other events that would require an immediate response from the police.  If you have a question, or want to provide any information to us, you can certainly send a message to us through social media or via email at info@lindenwoldpd.com and someone will get back to you.  All emergencies or crimes in progress should be reported by calling 911.

Another valuable tool we utilize to keep the public informed is crimereports.com .  This is a free crime mapping platform where residents can log on and see police activity in the borough of Lindenwold.  Business and residents can also participate in our Citizen’s Electronic Eye (C.E.E.) program while using Crime Reports.  If a business or residence has security cameras, they can register them through Crime Reports.  Registering the cameras shows the police department where the cameras are on a map.  While conducting an investigation, we can check for registered cameras in the area and contact the resident or business and ask to review any evidence that may have been captured by the cameras.  Please note:  Registering a security camera does NOT give the police department access to the camera.

Our mission is to make Lindenwold a safe place to live, work, and visit all while partnering with our community.

Thank you and stay safe!
