Pitman Police Department News

The Pitman Police Department would like to Officially thank everyone who came out to support the K-9 Food Truck Fest this past Saturday. In these challenging times in which we live, it is comforting, humbling and rewarding to be shown so much support and appreciation. We emphasize that this event is to bring awareness and additional funds to the PPD K-9 Unit however, we are equally proud that we are able to bring such an awesome event to the Borough of Pitman and specifically, the Uptown Pitman Business District. In each of our first two events, we try to recognize the positives and the negatives that were part of the event and we appreciate the feedback that has been received. We will continue to move forward with the positives and make improvements and learn from areas where it is necessary to do so. We would not be able to be as successful as we have been without the help of so many. This event would not be possible without the leadership, support and encouragement of the following: Mayor and Council consisting of Mayor Russell C. Johnson III, Council President James Pierpont, Public safety Director Amy Rudley, Councilwoman Debra Higbee, Councilman Michael Razze, Councilman Kevin Austin and Councilman Paul Blass Borough of Pitman headed by Clerk/Admin. Judy O'Donnell Pitman Public Works headed by Director Fred Rodi Pitman Parks and Recreation headed by Director Andy Fox Pitman Library headed by Director Sharon Furgason Pitman Fire Department headed by Boro Chief Bruce Scott Fire Safety Office headed by Fire Safety Official Ryan Pierson I would also like to thank the Pitman Police Unit Tour members, Sgt. Jon Streater, Investigator Nick Barbetta, Patrolman Sam Hoffman and Patrolman Eric Weist for their continued involvement and support. PBA Local #122 (the Local representing the Pitman Police Department) and all the law enforcement agencies and officers throughout Gloucester County. PBA Local #105 (representing NJ State Corrections Officers, Juvenile Justice Officers and NJ State Parole Officers) for providing free water to hundreds of event visitors. I would also like to thank the entire Pitman Police Department each Officer and Mrs. Susan Wilson (Office Administrator) who work tirelessly and often on their own time, planning, organizing and running this event as well as, their families and friends who also assist in a variety of ways but certainly, sacrifice often. Specifically, I would like to thank the Special Events Unit consisting of Sgt. Thomas Zander, Cpl. Chris Leach (who acts as the liasion for the Unit and I, to the Food Trucks), Cpl. Andy Carson, Ptl. EJ Parker, Ptl. Marshall Pierson and Officer Christine Osinski. Lastly, I would like to thank the many volunteers and supporters who assist with the event and those who come out to enjoy the evening and show their support for the K-9 Unit. Daniel J. McAteer Pitman Police Department Chief of Police

Saturday, November 4th, 4-10 pm. You don't want to miss this one!!

Drop whatever you are doing on Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 4-10 pm and come enjoy the Original and Premier Gloucester County Food Truck Fest. So much variety that you will feel like you have traveled the world, one dish at a time.....or at least the length of Uptown Pitman. Come out to support the Pitman PD K9 Unit and k9 Ranger. This is our 2nd Annual Food Truck Fest and we have improved and increased our size and are gearing up for one beautiful Chowdown Uptown.

What a great day and event in Pitman today. The PPD was thrilled and honored to be a part of the First "Annual" Pitman Potter Festival. Please enjoy a safe remainder of the weekend.

It's a House Gryffindor kind of day! Gonna be a great day to stop by and take in some of the sounds, sights and events of the Pitman Potter Festival today.....11:00 am - 5:00 pm. Here are early pics of some first arrivals.

Just under a month to go until our 2nd Annual K-9 Fundraiser, Chow Down Uptown Food Truck Party! Please come out and support the K-9 Unit and Ranger! It is sure to be another spectacular night. Enjoy a bite to eat or 3 or 4, do a little dancing, socializing and have an all-around great time. Be sure to stop by the PPD table and say hello.

Please, if you see or hear anything suspicious, please call and report it. Do not worry whether you feel the information rises to meet some "emergency" definition or standard. If it seems wrong or suspicious to you, please dial "911" and report it. The Pitman Police Department will respond and make a determination of the action to be taken. If we do not know about it, we cannot take action to solve, address, prevent or correct it. Sharing it to Social Media, calling too late or waiting to report it to another town official after the fact, does the PPD no good. Police response needs to be rapid, immediate and thorough to insure the best outcome. Also, for your own safety and liability, under no circumstances should you confront anyone that seems suspicious, let the PPD Officers do that. So, if you see something, say something....please.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Doris Corson, former Pitman Police Department Chief's Secretary. Doris was employed for over 20 years with the PPD and retired in 1997. Through the years Doris was a steadying and reliable presence for the officers of the PPD and was a valued and loved member of the department. Family and friends may visit on Monday, from 10:00-11:00 am at Smith Funeral Home, Main Street, Mantua NJ. A service will be held at 11:00am. Our thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to the family and friends of this very special lady. We mourn her loss but Doris' legacy and memory will remain imbedded in the hearts and history of the PPD.

What a thrill today to be involved in Memorial School's Annual Butterfly Parade. As police officers, we get to see our beloved community in good times and bad. Today, was one of the great times. Being involved in an event like this and witnessing the passion, commitment and professionalism of the teachers, school officials, parents and community leaders along with the innocence, excitement and goodness of the students reminds each of us just how important our work is but also, just how unique and special this town is! We are blessed. #thefutureisbright

Come visit Uptown Pitman and check out the ScareCrows. We are particularly proud of the PPD ScareCrow honoring our Pitman Crossing Guards. All the credit goes to Mrs. Susan Wilson and Mrs. Karen Robinson for their creation! Thank you, Sue & Karen!

The PPD was honored to be involved with Pitman's first Senior Services Fair yesterday afternoon being held at the Pitman United Methodist Church. The Fair was a great success and we look forward to next year's Fair.

The PPD was thrilled and honored to be part of a heart warming show of support for local resident and friend, Paul Loudner yesterday. Paul is an a courageous battle against cancer and his fellow firefighters were on hand to escort him to his treatment. We were invited to assist by our friends and colleagues at the Pitman Fire Department. It was amazing to see the friendship and care that exists between brothers and sisters in the emergency services. Beat Cancer's ass, Paul and know that along with your other brothers and sisters, the PPD also has your back the entire way! #paulstrong #beatcancersass

It is a sad day for the PPD as we say goodbye to one of our own. Kenneth (Ken) Hickman, age 80, will be laid to rest today. Ken retired from the PPD in 1992 after a career of serving and protecting the Borough of Pitman. Ken also served our country as a member of the United States Coast Guard. As we mourn our loss today and remember Ken, our thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to his family, friends and fellow officers. Friends may call today from 9:30 to 11am at Kelley Funeral Home on Pitman Avenue. Rest easy, Ken, you served well and you will be remembered and missed.
