LIEUTENANT BRIAN WECHKUS - DIVISION COMMANDER
SERGEANT DAVID KING - DETECTIVE SERGEANT
The Pemberton Police Investigations Division is charged with investigating all major crimes that occur within the township and also with follow-up investigations.
The organizational structure of the division includes a detective sergeant and seven investigators. The normal working schedule for the Investigations Division is a four day work week, ten hours per day. However, each investigator is subject to being on call for a week, on a rotating basis. The "on call" investigator is notified by a superior officer of the police department and responds to major crime scenes.
The division is required to assume responsibility where a follow-up investigation is required. Each investigator is cross-trained to professionally investigate any type of criminal activity to which he or she may be assigned. Investigations include all criminal activity that requires additional lengthy follow-up that would be restrictive to patrol officers in time or resources.
The division is to maintain cooperation and coordination among various law enforcement agencies to reduce the level of crime and solving crimes where they do occur. The Investigations Division cooperates with other city, state and federal agencies in investigating incidents and gathering of criminal intelligence data. This is one of the many duties of the Investigations Division.
Investigators are required to investigate crimes against persons (crimes including homicides, rapes, assault, etc.) and crimes against property (burglaries, larcenies, forgeries, auto thefts, etc.)
Unlike the adult system, where a complaint can be filed with the Municipal Court Clerk, all juvenile complaints are filed and heard at the county level.
Anyone with information about any illegal activity is asked to contact the
Pemberton Police Investigations Division at 609.894.3310 or the Confidential Tip Line at 609.894.3352
