Camden, N.J.- This week the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Community Outreach and Engagement Unit (COE) visited several locations in Camden City to drop-off food donations along with sustainable cloth bags that were given by the NJ Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor, announced Camden County Prosecutor Grace C. MacAulay.

CCPO Section Chief of the Community Outreach and Engagement Unit Assistant Prosecutor Sonja Furlow, traveled with COE Unit members Detective Sheron Kee, Detective Eric Ruiz and Karelie Nogueras to the Cathedral Kitchen, the New Life Covenant Church and the South Jersey food Bank to drop off food donations and the sustainable cloth bags.

The Community Outreach and Engagement Unit’s primary purpose is to bridge the gap between law enforcement and the community. The COE Unit will accomplish such by forming partnerships with community, grass roots and faith-based organizations. The COE Unit will work with our partners to introduce our community to the many opportunities Camden County has to offer. Whether that is introducing a classroom of middle school students to health and science professionals in their community – thereby providing positive role models for encouragement, development and change; referring a high school student to a mentoring program that will guide and assist them through the college application process; or assisting a family with referring a loved one to mental health or substance abuse treatment – the COE Unit will be there to help navigate the community through every step of the journey.
