Safe Care Cam


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.



Whitehorse Circle to close Saturday for approximately two months

The Whitehorse Circle in Hamilton will close this Saturday for approximately two months as New Jersey Department of Transportation officials continue work to replace the circle with a modern roundabout.

NJDOT officials said the circle—located at the intersection of Route 206, South Broad Street and Whitehorse Avenue—will be shut down at 6 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9. Throughout the fall, NJDOT’s contractor South State Inc. will close and detour the circle in stages, although state officials said a series of temporary full closures is necessary to complete the project.

The $4.3 million federally-funded project will replace the current Whitehorse Circle with a modern roundabout, where all motorists yield to traffic in the circle. NJDOT officials said the new roundabout will utilize safer entry points and eliminate circle cut through lanes.

The Whitehorse Circle is known throughout the area as a difficult intersection to navigate, and statistics reflect the circle’s dangerous reputation. From 2013 to 2015, 138 crashes occurred near the circle, according to a NJ.com article.

The following signed detours will be in place during the upcoming closures:

Whitehorse Avenue southbound to South Broad Street eastbound
  • Motorists on Whitehorse Avenue southbound will be directed to Route 206 northbound
  • From Route 206 northbound to Irvington Place
  • From Irvington Place to Route 206 southbound
  • From Route 206 southbound to South Broad Street
Route 206 southbound to South Broad Street eastbound (overnight only)
  • Motorists from Route 206 southbound will be directed to Carmen Avenue
  • From Carmen Avenue to Route 206 northbound
  • From Route 206 northbound to South Broad Street
South Broad Street westbound to Route 206/Bordentown Road southbound
  • Motorists on South Broad Street westbound will be directed to Route 206 northbound
  • From Route 206 northbound to Irvington Place
  • From Irvington Place to Route 206 southbound
