Cherry Hill Police Department Lock It Or Lose It Campaign
Since the start of 2012, there have been more than 180 reported incidents of items stolen from unlocked and locked vehicles. In a program aimed at reducing that figure, the Cherry Hill Police Department is making the public aware of our campaign called “Lock It or Lose It.” The message is clear: Everyone is strongly advised to lock their cars and remove any valuables each time they exit their vehicle – even if parked in the household driveway, and most certainly when in public parking lots. The vast majority of incidents involve unlocked vehicles and we are seeing a sharp increase in thefts from vehicles parked in residential areas. Please report any suspicious people, vehicles or incidents to police immediately! When possible, please provide descriptions such as a person’s sex, race, height/weight, clothing, hair color, etc. and a vehicle description to include make, model, color, number or doors, license plate number or distinguishing marks (such as damage or a bumper sticker). These descriptions along with their location and/or direction of travel will help us locate the suspicious people/vehicles and investigate the incident. Regardless of how much information you have always report suspicious incidents or activity. Your call may help the Cherry Hill Police solve a crime! Your belongings could be gone in seconds if the proper precautions aren’t taken. To report any suspicious activity please call Police Dispatch at (856) 665-1200.

Mayor's Wellness Tip Of The Week - Take advantage of the local garden-fresh fruits and vegetables in your area.
During the summer months you will find abundant fresh produce in season, locally, when it’s most enjoyable. When seasonal fruits and vegetables are this fresh and delicious, it’s easy to fill your diet with low-calorie, antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables and herbs. Perfectly ripe peaches boast beta carotene, blueberries are rich in vitamin C and fresh-picked corn is full of folate. If you’re lucky enough to get produce fresh from your garden or find some at your local farmers’ market, all the better! You can learn more about the Mayor's Wellness Campaign and take the pledge to join by clicking here.
