EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – For the past three years, the Egg Harbor Township Police Department has been following the old adage of work smarter, not harder in its approach to crime prevention.

Police Chief Michael Morris brought the program into the department when he took over command in 2011, amid a steep increase in crime in the township that coincided with the nationwide economic downturn and a decrease in staffing within the department due to budget constraints.

 “People are really excited. They’ve been stopping in, asking what we are doing and when we are going to open,” said Scott Raring of Linwood, who purchased the property at the corner of Bargaintown Road and Poplar Avenue with business partner Victor “Rocky” Klever, also of Linwood.
