BCPO Forum on Police-Involved Shootings

The Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office will hold a public forum on June 1 in Westampton to discuss the process by which officer-involved shootings are investigated, as determined by the Attorney General’s directive governing this matter.

The use of non-lethal force options will also be discussed, and a trained officer will demonstrate the use of a Taser. The format of the forum is designed to encourage dialogue throughout the program.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Burlington County Emergency Services Training Center, located at 53 Academy Drive in Westampton.  Light refreshments will be available during registration, which begins at 8:30 a.m. To register, visit https://burlingtoncountynj.wufoo.com/forms/bcpo-community-forum/

Mayor's Message on Township Master Plan

In 2017, the Township began a re-examination of our Master Plan, in accordance with New Jersey statute and best practices.  Two public sessions were held, and we collected significant community input regarding zoning, areas of needed redevelopment, traffic issues, and others.  The Township Planner also met with our Economic Development Advisory Committee and received significant input from them as well.

This year, both the Township Committee and the Township Planning Board will be working diligently with our professionals and staff on completing this re-examination.  As you are all aware, the Township has seen significant growth in the past few years, and we anticipate interest in our community will continue to increase.  The Master Plan is the presiding document that will guide us toward successful future development and ensure the quality of life for all residents will be improved. 

Many of you have heard me promote “Bordentown Township- Crossroads of the Heart of New Jersey”.  As this has become more prominent, the importance of having a solid plan has grown.  Residents can be confident that the process by which we are re-examining and adopting the Township Master Plan is thorough and professional, and will set the stage for success in 2018 and beyond.

Respectfully, your Mayor,  Stephen Benowitz

An Initiative to Protect Your Loved Ones Receiving Care


On December 22, 2016, Attorney General Christopher Porrino and the Division of Consumer Affairs announced a new program designed to ensure that New Jersey residents who suspect their loved ones are being abused, mistreated, or neglected by unscrupulous home health care providers can have access to micro-surveillance cameras that can be easily hidden to detect abuse and protect patients. The "Safe Care Cam"  Program makes these cameras available for free 30-day loans. To participate in the program, please follow these simple steps:

1.  Call the Division of Consumer Affairs at either (973) 504-6375  or (800) 242-5846. Follow voice prompts to a "Safe Care Cam"  Program voicemail box and leave a message with your name and contact information.

2.  A staff member will contact anyone who leaves a voicemail with further information about the program and to schedule an appointment to pick-up a camera at either the Division's Newark or Cherry Hill office, depending on what is more convenient to the program participant.

3.  At this appointment, the program participant will be required to do the following:

*                Provide a copy of a driver's license or other official identification.

*                Provide contact information, including phone number, cell phone number, and address.

*                Sign a program contract, which sets forth the rules and obligations under the "Safe Care Cam"  Program.

4.  Additionally, at this appointment, a staff member will provide the program participant with a camera and an accompanying memory card. A brief training will be provided on how the camera works and how footage can be recorded, viewed, and saved.

5.  The camera and memory card will be on loan for 30 days. Upon request, this loan can be extended for a longer period of time.
