The Haddon Township Police Department has a Criminal Investigations Unit comprised of three officers. The unit is supervised by Detective Sergeant William Benham. The detectives are responsible for performing follow-up investigations. They are also required to be “on call” and respond to a crime scene to locate, process, and collect evidence. A detective must be able to perform a thorough investigation and interview both witnesses and suspects.
Crimes of violence and those endangering the public safety are given highest priority. Proactive and covert investigations are initiated, particularly in the area of narcotics enforcement and property crimes, to identify and apprehend drug traffickers and burglars.
