Community Resource Bureau

The Community Resource Bureau strives to work with the community to address issues and try to resolve problems.  Some of the initiatives/programs that have been implemented are:

  • National Night Out:  Our department participates annually in National Night Out, a community event to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie.
  • College Internship Program:  the goal is to provide a positive learning environment for interested college students to experience the various aspects and responsibilities of law enforcement first hand.
  • Home Safety Tips and Self Assessment: Click here to read on how you can keep your home safe. Tips include security while you are away and the do’s & don’ts of home security
  • Kids Safety Camp:  Our department works with the Burlington Township Fire Department to sponsor a Kids Safety Camp annually promoting safety.  This two-day camp is held to teach safety measures to 5th and 6th grade students.
  • Domestic Violence Response Team (DVRT):  Burlington Township Police Department sponsors a DVRT in conjunction with the Burlington City and Florence Township Police Department.  This dedicated group of volunteers responds to the police department to assist victims of domestic violence during a trying and difficult time in their lives.

  • K.I.D.S (Kids Identification DNA System)   The department provides kits for parents to collect and store their child’s DNA so that in an emergency, a DNA sample from the child is available.
  • Apartment Complex Partnership A Program initiated at the beginning of 2009 to better promote relationships between the police department and the apartment communities in town.
  • Project Medicine Drop  Burlington Township Police Department serves as a medicine drop box location allowing citizens to safely dispose of expired or unwanted medication.
