Mayor, Council honor resident Ted Kail for his volunteer work

In recent years, he's been a huge supporter of our Morning Fun summer camp program, and along with Jill, has taken the lead in organizing our Teen Scene and Out on the Town programs for special needs teens and adults. At just 24 years of age, Teddy has already done so much to make Cherry Hill a better, stronger and more inclusive place to live, and we were proud to recognize his work. Congratulations, Ted!

Cherry Hill Police invite residents to register their surveillance systems

The Cherry Hill Police Department is inviting homeowners who maintain outdoor surveillance cameras to register their system to be contacted in the event a criminal investigation is initiated in your area. These systems have proven helpful to police in investigating crimes both at these homes and in the immediate area. Residents interested in registering their system with the CHPD should e-mail their name, address, phone number and e-mail address to tips@cherryhillpolice.com. The Department’s Investigative Unit will maintain a confidential log of residences with surveillance systems and if contacted, you can decide if you are willing to provide access to any images or videos. Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to provide a safer community.
