BRIDGETON — The Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office released a new website Oct. 6, featuring interactive tools aimed at promoting a partnership between law enforcement and the community.

“Now is the time to reimagine public safety,” county Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said in a news release,“ by finding ways to ally with the community we are sworn to serve. It is our hope that this tool makes it easier to accomplish this goal.”

The website includes a cloud-based network application that provides interactive community policing tools designed to promote a police/public partnership in public safety, according to the release. 

I could have never imagined that what started as an idea, to better engage our community, would become a tool for community interaction. It’s my hope that the tool helps to make the public feel like we are accessible and a partner in their safety. – Cumberland County Prosecutor – NJ

Through the website, members of the community can:

  • ask questions,
  • submit anonymous tips,
  • file officer-related complaints or commendations,
  • subscribe to alerts,
  • search and download important documents,
  • view wanted and missing persons flyers,
  • discover agency community programs,
  • follow news,
  • apply for career opportunities,
  • research use of force and internal affairs guidelines,
  • share the locations of video cameras. 

“I am committed to a strong and transparent connection between law enforcement and the community,” Webb-McRae said. “I could have never imagined that what started as an idea, to better engage our community, would become a tool for community interaction. It’s my hope that the tool helps to make the public feel like we are accessible and a partner in their safety.”
