The Burlington County Sheriff’s Office is mobilizing in the county’s Washington Township to help improve safety on the rural township’s roads.
The township has no local police department but is patrolled by the state police.
“Traffic safety is everyone’s responsibility and our officers work with local municipalities and police departments to assist with enforcement and education,” said county Sheriff James Kostoplis.
“We have officers available and trained to do this important work, and we’re proud to be out there performing these services to improve the safety on our roads for everyone.”
The enforcement initiative is being funded with grant money awarded to the municipality to support public safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
Kostoplis said his office has conducted traffic enforcement actions in other Burlington County towns, including Chesterfield last year.
“We know a lot of local police departments are short on officers, so we’re proud to step in and provide some assistance if needed,” Kostoplis said. “By working together, we can help make sure our roads are safer for everyone.”
