The department in early 2016 created the Street Crimes Unit. This unit was formed to combat quality of life issues within the township and to handle all drug investigations. The unit works closely with the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Gangs, Guns and Narcotics Task Force.
Primarily working plain clothed operations, members of the unit, led by Sergeant Ken Martin and under the command of Lt. Doug Osmundsen conduct numerous undercover operations to include narcotics, prostitution and gang related investigations.
The unit also assists the Patrol Division and Major Crimes Unit in areas of criminal activity with surveillance and plain clothed operations.
The unit consists of:
Sergeant Kenneth Martin
Corporal John Norton
Patrolman Thomas Ritterhoff
Patrolman Thomas Flounders
