Why Evesham Officers are looking a little scruffy this month? Here are a few more pictures of officers who are participating in the "No Shave November" campaign to raise awareness for cancer. ETPD currently has over 70 officers participating in the great cause! The Evesham Police Department is participating in the "No Shave November" campaign aimed at bringing awareness to cancer. Members of the Police Department will, if they voluntarily choose to participate, make a donation to cancer research. The participating members will begin a month-long journey to forgo shaving to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. We are going to grow hair to grow cancer awareness to support cancer prevention, research and education. “This terrible disease has an impact on every one of us, whether it is our family, friends or even our own personal fight. We must continue to work together and fight this disease, find a cure and continue to save lives.” Chief Christopher Chew. The Evesham Police Department aims to bring awareness to all types of cancer, which include both prostate and testicular cancer. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in American men. In 2017, 161,360 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, 26,739 will die from prostate cancer. Currently, 2.9 million men live with prostate cancer in the United States. 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in America for men between the ages of 20-34. In 2017, 8,850 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer, 410 men will die from testicular cancer this year. Early detection of prostate and testicular cancer is critical to survival rates. The five-year survival rate for prostate cancer, when caught in the early stages, is 100%. The five-year survival rate of testicular cancer, when caught in the early stages, is 99%. Both prostate and testicular cancer not caught in the early stages has limited treatment options, early diagnoses is critical to the survive of these cancers. Prostate cancer can be detected early by getting a simple PSA blood test. Testicular cancer can be detected early by getting educated on self-screening exams. We ask the public to join us in this campaign. We are seeking our community members to spark conversations with your family members and friends about cancer awareness.

Evesham Police warn drivers to watch for deer Evesham Police are warning drivers to be on alert through November as this is one of the most common months for car-deer collisions. The deer population is quite active during this month, which means motorists will likely encounter the animal more than other times of the year not only on side streets, but also on the major highways. ETPD offers some tips to avoid hitting deer: Be especially alert during dawn and dusk. Scan highway shoulders for deer eyes reflecting light. One deer running across is often followed by others hurrying to catch up. If a collision is unavoidable, hold the steering wheel, don't swerve, and bring the vehicle to a complete stop on the shoulder. The most serious accidents happen when a driver swerves to avoid a deer and crashes into something else.

Man charged for leaving overdose victim unattended and fleeing area On October 17, 2017, at 11:10am, a witness contacted the Evesham Police Department after they observed two white males carrying an unconscious male from a car and abandoning the male inside a residence in the unit block of Bartram Road. The two males then fled the area in their vehicle without calling for medical assistance. Evesham Officers immediately responded to the scene and located an unconscious male in the foyer of the residence who was barely breathing. Officers quickly administered multiple doses of Nasal Narcan. Within seconds, the male positively reacted to the medication by regaining consciousness and normal breathing. The male was subsequently transported to the hospital for further medical treatment. During a follow up investigation, investigators were able to identify one of the males who had abandoned the victim. That male, Peter Baron Jr., age 34, of Cherry Hill, NJ was charged with 3rd degree Endangering an Injured Victim. The State of New Jersey Overdose Prevention Act ensures that those seeking medical attention for a potential overdose victim, as well as the victim, will be immune from prosecution. This law allows individuals to report drug overdoses without the fear of being arrested. We strongly encourage our community members to immediately dial 911 when confronted with this type of situation.

Wet leaves are in some cases even more slippery and dangerous than ice. Be aware of this when you’re driving, walking, running, or anything else. The rubber on your tires and on the soles of your shoes will most definitely behave differently when in contact with those wet leaves. We talk about safely operating in snow and ice all the time, but leaves can be just as dangerous. Stay safe on the road this fall with these smart driving tips. • Don't brake on leaves. Wet leaves can be as slippery as ice. ... • Avoid sun glare. ... • Use your rain smarts. ... • Be careful on bridges. ... • Adjust your eyes. ... • Watch out for deer. ... • Make sure your vehicle is up to the task.

Halloween Safety Tips: Trick or Treaters Daylight trick or treating is safer than going out at night. Walk, don’t run. Stay in a group. Stay on the sidewalk. Cross the street at the corner and always look both ways before crossing. Never cross the street from between parked cars. Carry a flashlight or glow-stick after dark. Don’t cut across yards or driveways. Wear clothing with reflective markings or tape. Only approach houses that are well lit. Don’t pet animals you don’t know. Never enter a stranger’s home or car for a treat. Obey all traffic and pedestrian regulations. Remove any mask that may limit sight before crossing a street, alley or driveway. Don’t assume because one car has stopped that others will. Motorists may have trouble seeing you after dark so BE CAREFUL. Never eat candy or other treats until they have been thoroughly check by an adult at home. Parents Plan costumes that are bright and reflective. Consider adding reflective tape or stripping. Make sure shoes fit and costumes are designed to prevent tripping and entanglement. Secure emergency identification on younger children. Purchase costumes, wigs and accessories that have a label indicating they are flame resistant. Avoid pointed costume props (swords, knives, pitchforks). Props should have smooth tips that are flexible enough to not cause injury if fallen upon. Although tampering is rare, you should closely examine all treats and throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items. Make sure that items that can cause choking are given only to those of an appropriate age. Do not permit children to bicycle, rollerskate or skateboard on Halloween. Make sure that you know where your children are going and what route they intend to take. Older children should know how to reach you and when to be home. Encourage your children to report any suspicious activity to the police department. Remind your children that 911 can be dialed from free from any phone.
