Officer of the Week This week, the Camden County Police Department is proud to recognize the outstanding investigative work done by Detective Frank Cardoso. Detective Cardoso joined the Camden County Police Department in 2013 and is currently assigned to the Investigative Bureau after previously having served in the Neighborhood Response Team. Detective Cardoso is being recognized for his diligence in his investigation of a robbery in February that led to the identification and arrest of a suspect last week. On Feb. 20, a male victim was approached by two individuals outside of a store at the corner of 3rd and Elm Streets. The suspects forcibly took the victim's bicycle and then fled the scene. Detective Cardoso was assigned to investigate the robbery and was able to speak with the victim and obtain a detailed description of the suspects involved in the robbery. Detective Cardoso was also able to locate surveillance video footage that showed the suspects. On April 6, Detective Cardoso observed one of the suspects from the Feb. 20 robbery outside of a liquor store near the corner of South 3rd and Benson streets. Detective Cardoso was able to arrest the suspect without incident, and he was subsequently charged with robbery and conspiracy. Detective Cardoso’s hard work and attention to detail led to the arrest of this suspect, and he is deserving of this recognition as Camden County Police Department Officer of the Week.

Public safety/crime tip Protecting yourself from identity theft. There are many ways for people to obtain information about you and attempt to steal your identity – allowing them to drain your bank accounts, run up your credit cards and even apply for and receive new credit cards and loans in your name. Some steps you can take to make it harder for identity thieves to turn you into a victim: - Do not carry your Social Security card or birth certificate with you. - Do not use your birth date as a password. - Do not write down important passwords and carry them with you; memorize them. - Shred financial documents before throwing them out. - Check your credit card statements every month for unusual activity. - Never give out personal or financial information over the phone unless you initiated the contact. - If your purse or wallet is stolen, notify your bank, credit card company and the credit bureaus immediately, along with the police. In Camden, contact the CCPD at (856) 757-7400.
