Cinnaminson Police are investigating the burglary of a Church Road home earlier this week.

According to police, a burglar kicked in the front door of a residence on the 2400 block of Church Road sometime between 4 and 7 p.m. Tuesday. The resident discovered the break-in when they returned home that evening. Police said jewelry was stolen.

Cinnaminson Police have investigated several residential burglaries over the last month or so. In a number of those cases, the burglars broke in by kicking in front or back doors.

Police arrested a Camden man just before Christmas who broke into a Union Landing Road home while the resident was still inside.

Police once again urge residents to report any suspicious activity by calling 911 or 856-829-6666 (non-emergency).

"The worst is when we knock on a neighbor's door (after a crime has occurred) and they say, 'Oh yeah, I did notice something suspicious,'" Lt. Tim Young said recently. "They should call us about anything ... We'd rather respond to five false alarms than not be there (when a crime occurs)."

Hey leigh, sorry to interrupt your complaining with facts! Not sure what you don't get about the idea that these guys would not be working for the township anyway if they were not at these off- duty jobs. I'm sure they would rather be working for CPD since they would be making more money than working these second jobs!

Hey John, I'm no lawyer but I did see this on the website that I found online about hiring police off duty: Insurance. As a precondition to the use of employees by a private employer, the private employer shall provide written assurance that the officers are covered by the private employer's workmen's compensation insurance and personal liability insurance policies, and proof that the Township and its officers are named as additional insureds in amount of $1,000,000 per single occurrence, $2,000,000 in the aggregate; as well as such other information as the Civilian Director of Public Safety deems appropriate. All such information shall be submitted to the Township's Attorney for approval prior to the performance of any services by Township employees.
