Comments on page moderated COMMENTS Continued from page 5  to deploy a Taser. “Sergeant Corey Jones is the first police officer in Burlington County to deploy a Taser,” the post reads. “The Taser is a new tool for New Jersey law enforcement and will give officers the opportunity to resolve a confrontation without it escalating to a level where deadly force is required. Additional Mount Laurel Police Officers will deploy the Taser as they receive training in the upcoming months.” Lt. Daniel Howard’s recent retirement from the force was the first in the retirements photo album. Howard received an award of recognition from township council for his 25 years of  service to the community. His retirement was ef fective as of Oct. 1. Press releases, which are compiled several times each week on the department’s website, are linked to the Facebook page. The releases make Mt. Laurel crime public, from alleged shoplifters to thefts those who allegedly drive while to intoxicated. The department wants feedback from the community, too, and provides [email protected] as the resource for

submitting comments and tips. “That’s an easy way for people to email us,” Cribben said. “We’re  just hoping hoping to get as many towntownship residents and business goers in the Mt. Laurel community to like our Facebook page.” Comments on the page are allowed, but are moderated, and anything posted that has inappropriate content has and will be promptly deleted, he said.
