The Hammonton Police Department is asking local business owners for their assistance in keeping our town safe. We need your help in catching criminals and that’s why we are initiating a system called S.P.O.T. (Surveillance Protects Our Town). S.P.O.T. is a program where our businesses can register their surveillance cameras allowing us to have knowledge of their location(s). Even though we will not have access to any live and/or direct feeds, this will assist us with investigations, identifying suspects, and locating evidence. Being able to have access to these cameras would greatly help our departments mission as well protect the residents of Hammonton. Our community deserves an edge over the criminals and this is our advantage! Let’s keep Hammonton safe!
Interested local business owners can print the registry form from the Hammonton Police Department’s website (see link above). Completed forms need to ether hand delivered to the Hammonton Police Department, second floor police records room or mailed directly to: The Hammonton Police Department, 100 Central Avenue, Hammonton, NJ, 08037. Upon completion, the business owner will be issued their S.P.O.T. decal (as pictured above). If your registry form was submitted via mail, we will personally deliver your decal to your business. Once you are in possession of your decal, please be sure to place it in plain sight on your front window or door so that the public knows that you are registered with the S.P.O.T. program.
Thank you in advance for your support.
The Hammonton Police Department is proud to inform the public that our officers have been using Body Worn Cameras in patrol assignments since March of 2016. There is a current mandate for all law enforcement agencies use body-worn video cameras on police officers. The cameras will be used in accordance with the guidelines established by the New Jersey Attorney General and the directive issued by the Atlantic County Prosecutors Office. Our agency wants this technology to enhance and improve our relationship with you.
Our agency prides itself on its transparency to the public. We believe that the use of these cameras will significantly benefit both the community and our officers.
Body-Worn Cameras are certainly a powerful tool that can assist police and at the same time give the community a better understanding of what happened during an encounter. We do know that no technology is a perfect answer to all situations; therefore cameras should not be considered the only source of detail recollection. Body-worn cameras have limitations that need to be understood and considered when evaluating the recordings.
Body-Worn Camera footage is similar to footage from a cell phone camera. The devices will be mounted to an officer’s uniform. The cameras will point away from the officer and will capture images in the camera’s field of vision. Citizens who interact with police officers will be recorded on body camera footage.
• Improve transparency among Public Safety
• Enhance Accountability and Trust
• Reduce Complaints against Officers
• Make prosecutions more efficient & effective
• Reduce liability for public law enforcement organizations
Our agency has also applied for grant funding to build upon our current BWC program so that we can grow with current technology to better serve our community.
