We at the Deptford Township Police Department are greatly saddened by these events and strive for constant professionalism. I would like to ensure our residents and visitors that we have extensive training in the area of de-escalation techniques and minimal force utilization. 

We will continue to perform our duties to the best of our abilities, and I am very thankful for the continued support of our great community.
