Bianchini on County PD: 'You Won't See Them Here'

The Gloucester Township Council president indicates he will not welcome a Camden County police force in the township.

Lost—or perhaps even completely missed by most—in the noise about competing pay-to-play ordinances and a Green Team conspiracy theory Monday night was Gloucester Township Council President Glen Bianchini's strongest statement of support for maintaining a township police force to date.

The statement came following a comment by Valleybrook resident Darren Gladden regarding shared services, including for fire, ambulance and police coverage.

"I don't believe in the countywide police, and you won't see them here in Gloucester Township," Bianchini said.

Republicans were critical of Bianchini and his running mates for what they considered the Democrats' lukewarm support of the Gloucester Township Police Department as talks of the countywide police force dominated conversation in Camden County in 2011.

Bianchini did state on several occasions that he supported and wanted to maintain the township police force in the build-up to the November 2011 Council election.

Now, now, now, Michael, if you want to make snide remarks you do not get to explain they are so afterwards. The rules are that you let fly and see what sticks and where:-)

Sorry Paul, I must of missed that rule. I'll have to go back and read the rule book again. :)

If Mr. Bianchini's words are true, then he and council may want to put this to a resolution. Prove it to the people of Gloucester Township. Right now it is only words. We have heard it all before.

Hey Dawg-- You have a great idea there. That would also commit council to back him before King George and train.
