WHEREAS it is the intention of the Mayor and Council of Cherry Hill Township to focus attention on noteworthy individuals; and
WHEREAS for the last 36 years, Richard J. DelCampo has served with honor and distinction as a member of the Cherry Hill Police Department, including three and a half years as our Chief of Police; and
WHEREAS Chief DelCampo, a native of Cherry Hill, joined the Department in April 1978, and rose through its ranks until being named Chief of Police in 2010; and
WHEREAS along every step of the way, Chief DelCampo has put his heart and soul into making our community safer and stronger, and made us truly proud to call him one of our own; and
WHEREAS in addition to his passion for the job, the Chief is best known among his colleagues for his tremendous sense of humor and a big heart – but more than anything, he is regarded as a great cop who loves to catch “the bad guy”; and
WHEREAS for these reasons and many more, Chief DelCampo will be deeply missed, and we wish to express our gratitude for the tremendous impact he has had on the Township of Cherry Hill, on the Cherry Hill Police Department, and on the men and women who have had the honor and pleasure of working with him through the years.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, CHUCK CAHN, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Mayor of the Township of Cherry Hill, County of Camden, State of New Jersey, do hereby honor and thank
Chief Richard J. DelCampo
for his 36 years of dedicated service to Cherry Hill Township and the Cherry Hill Police Department, and ask all citizens to join with me and Council in extending our warmest wishes and congratulations to the Chief and his family as he begins this new chapter in life.
