Yesterday the Woodstown Police Department marked the retirement of Public Safety Director Cristopher Simmermon. Director Simmermon served as a trooper with the New Jersey State Police from 1985 until 2010 before coming to the Woodstown Police Department to serve as director in 2011. We would like to thank Director Simmermon for his years of service and wish him the best of luck in his retirement.

Sgt. Raymond Mattson will be taking over the roll as the department's next leader and will be sworn in as Police Chief on August 14th at 7:00pm. We would like to invite the public to join us at the borough council meeting as we mark yet another chapter in our history.
