October, 2020 Program Meeting Topic:
How the Camden Police Force got "Reorganization" Right

Members of Black Lives Matter and other groups have called for “defunding the police” by channeling money originally allocated to police departments to other community needs (education, health, housing, social workers.)  They point to the fact that policing in patrols was originally used to capture and terrorize the enslaved Black population—and to the increasing militarization of police in our own time. This has left Black people more afraid for their safety and less secure in their Constitutional rights. National NOW has urged the U.S Senate to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to address these issues.
In South Jersey, the Camden County Police Department has gotten national attention for its efforts to reform policing. Join the national dialogue on race and policing with two women who are part of the leadership team at the Camden County Police Department.

Lieutenant Ella Roberts began her law enforcement career in 1996 when she joined the former Camden Police Department. In 2013, she joined the new Camden County Police Department. In 2017, she was promoted to Lieutenant and in 2018 was assigned commander of the Body Worn Camera Unit.

Sergeant Melva Moss joined the former city police department in January, 2002 and the new Camden County Police Department at its inception in 2013. She served as an instructor for new recruits at the Camden County College Police Academy. In 2013, she was promoted to Sergeant, assigned to supervise officers in the Neighborhood Response Team.
