INVITES PUBLIC COMMENT

(Mount Laurel Township, Burlington County, NJ) A team of assessors from the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP) on Sunday, October 3, 2021, will examine all aspects of the Mount Laurel Township Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services Chief Stephen Riedener announced today.

" Verification by the team that the Mount Laurel Township Police Department meets the Commission’s “best practice” standards is part of a voluntary process to achieve accreditation, a highly prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence."
Chief Stephen Riedener

As part of this final on-site assessment, employees and members of the general public are invited to provide comments to the assessment team. They may do so by telephone or email. The public may call 856-261-7989 on October 3, 2021, between 10:00 A.M. and 11:00 A.M. Email comments can be sent to [email protected].

Telephone comments are limited to 5 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with the NJSACOP standards. Please contact Chief Stephen Riedener at 856-234-1414 x1550 for information about the standards.

Anyone wishing to offer written comments about the Mount Laurel Township Police Department’s ability to comply with the standards for accreditation is requested to email the Accreditation Program Director at [email protected] or write the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission at 751 Route 73 North, Suite 12 Marlton, N.J. 08053.

The Mount Laurel Township Police Department must comply with NJSACOP LEAP standards in order to achieve accredited status.

“Accreditation results in greater accountability within the agency, reduced risk and liability exposure, stronger defense against civil lawsuits, increased community advocacy, and more confidence in the agency’s ability to operate efficiently and respond to community needs.”
Chief Stephen Riedener indicated

The Accreditation Program Director for the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police is Mr. Harry J Delgado, Ed.S.

“The assessment team is composed of law enforcement practitioners from similar New Jersey law enforcement agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview agency members, and visit offices and other places where compliance with the standards can be observed. Once the Commission’s assessors complete their review of the agency, they will report to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status”
Harry J Delgado Stated

Accreditation is valid for a three-year period, during which time the agency must submit annual reports attesting to their continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.

The New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, through its New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission, is the legitimate authority and accreditation agency in the state of New Jersey. For more information regarding the Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission, please write the Commission at New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission at 751 Route 73 North, Suite 12 Marlton, N.J. 08053 or email [email protected].

Two male suspects entered the store and one suspect stated he had a gun and made verbal threats demanding they were given the money in the cash registers. The suspects were handed cash from three cash registers before fleeing the store and getting into a silver Dodge Caravan. No one was injured.

On October 12, 2021, at approximately 8:30 PM, Mount Laurel Police responded to Royal Farms 3123 Route 38 for an armed robbery. The employee stated two male suspects held him at gunpoint and demanded money from the register.

The suspects were observed getting into a U-Haul truck before heading onto Route 38 eastbound.

Moorestown Police also responded to assist in locating the suspect vehicle. A Moorestown officer observed a U-Haul entering I-295 southbound by Creek Road. The vehicle then continued onto Route 73 before getting onto the NJ Turnpike. Mount Laurel and Moorestown officers conducted a motor vehicle stop on the U-Haul truck on NJ Turnpike northbound. The driver, identified as Harvey Weaver, a 57-year-old man from Philadelphia, PA, and a 16-year-old juvenile from Deptford, New Jersey were both arrested. Officers were able to identify clothing the males were wearing and other items observed in plain view inside the U-Haul truck. There were no injuries reported during this incident.

Mr. Weaver was charged with the following crimes:
2C:15-1A(2) Robbery
2C:24-9A Employing a juvenile in the commission of a crime
