Camden PD Looks To Learn From Cease-Fire Unit

 

PATERSON, NJ – The success of Paterson’s Cease-Fire unit in solving non-fatal shootings has prompted representatives from the Camden police department to make a trip a north.

In a visit on Thursday, the Camden contingent is looking to learn about the Paterson Cease-Fire unit’s ability to solve about 50 percent of its cases during the past four years, officials said. Paterson had the most success in the state in solving non-fatal shootings, according to a story on nj.com last December.

“It’s definitely a boost for the entire program,’’ Paterson Police Director Glenn Brown said of the Camden visit.

Brown said the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs had suggested that police from Camden come to the Silk City to see “how our detectives conduct their investigations.’’

“One of the things they’re interested in is the community aspect,’’ said Lt. Patrick Murray, head of the Cease-Fire unit, our relationship with the clergy and the community.’’
