Mayor's Column

You may have noticed signs throughout Voorhees with this slogan encouraging residents to assist our police department in preventing criminal activity. Crime prevention is the anticipation, recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and taking action to remove or reduce the risk. If you see a crime in progress or suspicious activity, or hear something strange such as a crash, loud bang or scream, you should immediately contact the Voorhees Township Police Department. Try to provide as much information as possible. In an emergency, dial 911. In a non-emergency, call 856-428-5400. The police department's Anonymous Crime Tip Line is 856-627-7174.

Also, since this is a popular time for leaving your house unoccupied to go on vacation, our police department is offering a free security survey to all residents and business owners in Voorhees. Sgt. Daniel Stark, a 24-year veteran of the department, will use his crime prevention experience to educate homeowners and business owners of the dangers associated with crime and burglaries. Sgt. Stark will meet with homeowners and business owners to identify potential security weaknesses. To schedule an appointment for the survey, call the Voorhees Township Police Crime Prevention Office at 856-882-1104.

**The next show in our 2014 Summer Twilight Series is Thursday, Aug. 7 (rain date Thursday, Aug. 21) and will feature Almost Queen for the first time. This group succeeds in blending the vocal layering and studio precision that is a signature of the band with the energy and spectacle of a live stage production. Elaborate lighting effects and costumes aptly frame the seasoned musicians who step into these very large shoes to render an authentic "Queen experience”. The show is free and starts at 7:30 pm on the “Great Lawn” at Connolly Park. For more information, visit
