From Our Board

November was a very busy month. Our LEAD THE WAY GALA was a huge success where we honored three great individuals Richard A. “Bo”, Dietl, Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, and Michael B. Solakov. Joe Piscopo hosted this spectacular event.


We participated in the League of Municipalities Conference in Atlantic City. Leo was a big hit in front of 10,000 attendees.

We had a one week training where we certified over 20 new instructors.

As we head in to the holiday season we wish you and your families a safe, happy & healthy celebration.

Instructor of the Month

Officer Andy Tweedley

(Officer Andy Tweedley, Lindenwold Police Department)

A Father of 3 children and husband to Colleen, Officer Tweedley chose to purchase a home and seek employment with the Lindenwold Police Department in 2002. Prior experience includes the Camden City Police Department and Camden County Juvenile Detention. He is assigned to Patrol Division within the Police Department of 40 sworn officers.

Officer Tweedley has taken an interest in the younger generation after seeing some young men and women making bad choices during his time in the Camden City Police Department and the Camden County Youth Detention Center. In 2007 Officer Tweedley was asked to be part of the police department's Community Affairs.

Officer Tweedley continues to be a part of Community Affairs and is currently assigned as the Lindenwold School Districts School Resource Officer (SRO). Tweedley is the only SRO in the Lindenwold School District at this time. His responsibilities include overseeing 20 Lindenwold Police Department Crossing Guards, safety and emergency assistance for five schools within the district (Lindenwold Preschool, School #4, School #5, Middle School, and Lindenwold High School).

Officer Tweedley investigates incidents within the district and patrols all the schools each day. He also teaches L.E.A.D. to eight 6th grade classes at the Lindenwold Middle School at this time. Recently, Officer Tweedley and the Lindenwold Police Department upgraded the old Lindenwold Township Police Car with new L.E.A.D. decals.

The L.E.A.D. Car is a 1963 Dodge 330 and is painted and decaled exactly as it would have been in 1963 if it were used as a police patrol vehicle. The L.E.A.D. Car has never left the Borough of Lindenwold. It was bought in town at an old Dodge Dealer in 1963 and truly was that little old ladies car before being donated to the Lindenwold Police Department by Retired Sgt. Lowell Burlap, who was also a school based Officer. The car has 44,000 original miles on it and runs great.

Officer Tweedley looks forward to having the vehicle restored some day. Officer Tweedley lives and works in Lindenwold and is committed to helping the residents of Lindenwold and the State of New Jersey.
