4 CROSSING GUARDS Our crossing guards play an enormous role to the boroughs public safety function. Each school day, 10 crossing guards hit the streets to perform the paramount tasks of ensuring our children have a safe passage to and from school.

5 Retirees and other Previous Employees Below are the most contemporary sworn officers we wish to remember, who dedicated many years of their lives to Stratford. Their good work still has a positive affect on the department today. Retired Personnel Detective Frank Rizzo Deputy Chief Nick DiEttore Sergeant Edward Kane Chief James McBride Chief James Fuller Sergeant Paul Stoffel Clerk Maria Gahagen Captain John Brown Patrolman Fred Rick Casario Injuries and Accidents Stratford Borough is self-insured for workers compensation claims. In order to ensure the proper level of police services for the citizens of Stratford, there has been a concerted effort by all police officers to reduce incidents of work place injury. Unfortunately due to the inherently dangerous nature of the law enforcement profession, it often exposes police officers to hazardous situations that are beyond their control, therefore making the potential for injury extremely high. In 2013 there were three (3) cases of work related injuries. Fortunately, there were only three (3) work days missed due to these injuries. Throughout 2013, our Police Officers were assaulted on eight (8) separate occasions. These felonious assaults on Law Enforcement Officers occurred while police were investigating the following types of incidents: domestic disturbances, other disturbances, traffic stops and suspicious persons. Incidents and events at the Kennedy Hospital Emergency room have been of particular concern to police officers. Many visitors to the emergency room are seeking treatment for drug, alcohol and psychiatric conditions, or a variety of each category which tend to make their behavior erratic and irrational at best. In response to an inordinate number of disturbance calls at the Kennedy Hospital, the governing body of the Borough of Stratford enacted Ordinance , making certain security requirements for problem locations. In addition to the security ordinance, Kennedy Hospital Administration took steps to reduce calls for services upon their property. The Stratford Police Department logged over 125,000 miles driven in department vehicles in 2013; resulting in two (2) traffic accidents involving department vehicles. Because police officers are forced to drive in emergency vehicle status and given the amount of miles driven per year, having only two police accidents during the year is commendable. In both accidents, our police cars were struck by motorists while the officers were out of their vehicle on traffic stops. In one case, the driver was arrested for Drunk Driving. Our Police Officers are recognized for demonstrating exceptional care, caution and sound judgment.
6 CRIMINAL ACTIVITY Reported Crimes As can be seen by the figures below, the total reported criminal offenses remained constant from 2011 through 2013 crime figures. The figures below include all reported criminal activity except for traffic Total Criminal Offenses Arrests The figures listed below reflect the number of individuals arrested for the previous three years. It should be noted that most times, multiple charges are filed against a single individual. The arrests figures listed below reflect the number of persons (Adults / Juveniles) physically arrested by Stratford Police Officers. In approximately 195 additional cases, criminal charges have been filed against suspects, but they have not been yet arrested or were arrested by other law enforcement agencies at the request of the Stratford Police Department Arrests
7 Drug Offenses Because drug related crimes remain a high priority to law enforcement, the Stratford Police Department is continuing in its proactive enforcement efforts concerning drug use and distribution. Year Drug Offenses Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) The Uniform Crime Reporting Program is a nationwide, cooperative statistical effort of more than 17,000 cities, county and state law enforcement agencies reporting data on crimes brought to their attention. It was established in 1930 to gauge the state of crime in the nation. There are eight (8) main offense classifications, known as Part I Crimes, used as part of the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. The eight (8) crime classifications are divided into two categories; Violent Crimes and Property Crimes. The offenses which constitute the Violent Crime category include: Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter; Forcible Rape; Robbery; and Aggravated Assault. The offenses which constitute the Property Crime category include: Burglary; Theft; Motor Vehicle Theft; and Arson. Below is a chart highlighting the eight (8) identified crime classifications and the respective number of offenses for Stratford Borough for the last five (5) years.

9 There are a number of law enforcement calls for police services that are time consuming. Below are the most frequent calls for municipal police services / activity for the patrol division: Activity % of activity 2013 Suspicious Incidents Other Complaints Medical Assist Ordinance Violations Follow Up Investigations & Reports Patrol / Traffic Enforcement / MVA s 10% 20% 7% 4% 22% 37% Domestic Violence Acts of Domestic Violence are crimes the entire world must face and Stratford Borough is no way exempt. Domestic Violence consists of a host of crimes committed by family members, which is extended to any two people who have ever resided together. Domestic violence also governs those who have engaged in a dating relationship. Across the country, a large percentage of law enforcement officers who have been killed in the line of duty have resulted from responses to domestic violence incidents. By regulation, two police officers must respond to domestic disturbance calls. This is particularly challenging to the Stratford Police Department because there are hours which only one police officer is on duty. It is during these times that we must rely on mutual aid from neighboring police departments. In order to effectively deploy manpower resources when they are most needed, the administration of the Stratford Police Department has identified below, when most acts of Domestic Violence occur within our jurisdiction. It comes as no surprise that reported acts of Domestic Violence mirror those days when most drunk drivers are arrested. Over 35% of Domestic Violence acts during 2013 involved alcohol consumption on behalf of the actor, victim or both. These statistics are relatively unchanged from the prior year. In 2013, over 230 hours had been spent resolving these disputes either by arrest, emergency restraining orders or mutual separations. Domestic Violence at a Glance in the Borough of Stratford Most frequent day of occurrence: Most Frequent 2 hour period: Saturday 8:00 pm 9:59 pm

On average, 3.3 criminal charges per day were investigated, prepared or signed by the Stratford Police Department and passed onto to the Records and Municipal Court staff for processing. Once filed, criminal charges may be sent to the County Court or may be returned to the municipal court for disposition.
11 TRAFFIC Accidents For the second consecutive year, accidents within the borough are descending. During 2011 the Stratford Police Department investigated less traffic accidents than in the prior four years. Traffic Accident Six Year Comparison o Injury Accidents o Fatal Accidents o Number of Accidents Traffic Summonses issued by Category / - o Moving & Non 10, o DWI o Ordinance Summonses Photo Red Light Enforcement Program 2013 was the third year of operation for the Photo /Automated Red Light Enforcement Program. The program is still considered a Pilot Program with the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The Pilot is set to expire December In the coming year, the State of New Jersey will make a determination of whether or not the program should be extended, made permanent or discontinued.
12 PATROL Patrol is the largest Division and core law enforcement function of the Stratford Police Department. Its primary responsibility is responding to calls for service from the community. These calls can range from neighborhood disputes, domestic violence incidents and traffic accidents, to burglaries in progress, robberies and sudden death investigations. As the first responder to criminal complaints, patrol officers are responsible for seeing to the medical needs of anyone involved, interviewing witnesses, recognizing and preserving evidence, determining whether, in fact, a crime has occurred, and identifying and ultimately arresting those responsible. Officers in the Patrol Division are also expected to provide proactive services such as traffic enforcement, crime detection and suppression, and initiating contacts with community members to our commitment to Community Oriented Policing. We are even called upon to unclog toilets, discipline children, unlock car doors and change flat tires. While these tasks are not usual police functions, these are the needs of our vulnerable population and our officers our proud to serve the needs of our residents. Officers assigned to the Patrol Division are divided into two (2) Teams. Both teams are responsible for 24hour patrol coverage, seven days a week, 365 days a year. The A-Team is supervised by Sergeant Frank Gagliardi. The B- Team is supervised by Sergeant Robert Kelly. Each Team has a total of 5 police officers. The officers in the patrol division work 10 hour work days. Community Oriented Policing Programs & Strategies In the mid 1990's under the leadership of Chief James McBride, the Stratford Borough Police Department identified a need to implement community-oriented / problem solving strategies to assist in more effectively addressing citizen concerns about crime, safety and quality of life issues. While still embracing traditional policing practices such as random patrol and rapid response to calls for service, the department recognizes that there must be a collaborative problem solving approach between the police and the community in problem identification, prioritization and resolution of community concerns. More recently, these strategies have been greatly enhanced by our current police department leadership. Our more recent goals are to reduce crime and increase the quality of life by seeking citizen involvement, cooperation and support. One of the most important aspects of this philosophy is to identify and solve community problems rather than simply treating an issue. Operationally, we seek to implement our strategy and accomplish our goals through various programs including but not limited to:
13 Attendance at Community Meetings Child Seat installation & safety School Safety Programs Drunk and Drugged Driving Education Pre-K thru 12 Educational Programs PTA / PTO Participation Youth sports participation Child Identification Programs Officer Phil Program Red Ribbon Program Drunk Driving Enforcement Drug Enforcement Operations Code Enforcement Targeted Traffic Enforcement Volunteer Fingerprint Programs Crime Prevention Programs Town Watch Program (as needed) Bicycle Patrol Traffic Studies Field Training All police officers hired by the Stratford Borough Police Department must attend a state certified police academy. Upon graduation from the academy, all officers return to the department and are required to successfully complete a Field Training Program (FTO). The FTO program is an additional 2 months of supervised, intense training and evaluation in which the probationary officer is partnered with an experienced officer who has been carefully selected and trained as a Field Training Officer. It is the goal of the FTO Program to prepare and develop Probationary Officers to act efficiently, effectively and safely in a solo patrol capacity, which is an absolute essential function of the Stratford Police Department. Because there are many instances where an officer is unassisted during a patrol function, each and every member of the police department must have the knowledge, skills and abilities to properly handle any situation that may arise. To fill those voids, supervisors and detectives are on call to respond to or communicate with the duty police officer handling an incident or crisis. These detectives and supervisors perform this function without additional compensation 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
14 DETECTIVE BUREAU The Detective Bureau is charged with the responsibility to review all Police Investigation Reports and intelligence sources in order to prioritize and investigate criminal activity. Sergeant Scott Beasley is the supervisor of the Detective Bureau. The Detective Bureau also serves as the Stratford Police Department s Counter-Terrorism, Narcotics, Megan s, Firearms and Intelligence Liaisons and they meet regularly with other local, state and federal authorities in these regards. Additionally, members of the Detective Bureau instruct DARE Classes, Investigate Firearms Applicants, Investigate Business Licenses Applicants, secure and process all department evidence, and other property. The Detective Bureau is also responsible for providing for 24 hour a day, 365 days per year on call coverage. Detectives frequently are called during off hours to investigate serious active or recent crimes. The Detective Bureau works closely with the Camden County Prosecutors Office, and is reportable to that agency regarding all indictable crimes and investigations. The Detective Bureau is staffed by three police officers who have each undergone weeks of specialized training in their function.
