Cinnaminson Joins River Line Task Force

The town entered into a shared service agreement to work with other River Line towns for extra enforcement.

Police heads in towns up and down the River Line in Burlington County have entered into a mutual agreement that puts more law enforcement officers along the train’s route.

Cinnaminson township committee members approved the resolution at last week’s meeting.

“It’s a task force of all the police departments to ensure safe ridership initiatives,” said Mayor Don Brauckmann. “We need this resolution with all the towns to help facilitate these enforcement activities.”

The resolution says the Cinnaminson Police Department (and other towns' departments) will provide River Line patrols in their respective towns, rely on each other for additional officers if needed, and to enter into a shared service agreement to use police to enforce ordinances.

In addition to Cinnaminson, the other towns involved are Palmyra, Riverton, Riverside, Delanco, Beverly, Edgewater Park, Florence, Burlington and Bordentown.

what about rt 130? how many crimes are committed by people driving a car on our rt 130? has dunken donuts ever been robbed? how 'bout gas stations? do you also want to stop people from getting off the bus? i take the river line every day and it has saved my family more than $2,000 in gas and wear & tear on my truck. are there rude and inconsiderate people on the train? absolutely, but there's a heck of a lot of rude and inconsiderate people driving up and down our roads too.

Trains don't commit crimes. People do. There are as many break-ins and drug deals taking place in Moorestown, Maple Shade and Mt Laurel. Check the police blotters. Ask the Cherry Hill mall how many cars got broken into last year? some people are so filled with fear it's sad.

Perhaps I'm just ignorant about it BUT i assumed (and you know what they say when you assume) that the Riverline already had security officers, or whatever you call them, already. I haven't used it that much but when I did I noticed 'kids on bikes'' getting on in one town and then off in the next....and was surprised there was no one checking that out. Certainly they had no tickets....was a game to them. BUT, that's minute compared to other issues. I can appreciate it being used for transportation to work...much cheaper and safer then driving.

Right, let's call a "spade a spade'................more protection for 'legit riders' and 'stop allowing 'wastes riding the rails'...........perhaps that's their 'home away from home'?

Thank goodness there is no crime at WalMart or Shoprite - just to mention two other Cinnaminson locales that frequently earn attention at the crime section of the BCT. I guess following your logic those two stores should be also closed. And let's close Rt. 130 - at least the 409 which brings in ....And close the schools...and so on and so on
