School Resource Officer

The Burlington Township Police Department and the Burlington Township School District have developed a great relationship that allows the police department to have an active role in our community’s children.  Officer Ruben Ortiz-Cruz is the School Resource Officer assigned to the Middle School.

He has the ability to speak with the children, parents and staff of the school district in a way that keeps everyone involved in the justice system.  He is also trained to present classes with law enforcement related topics or current events as guest speakers.  He works closely with the administration and staff of the schools to act in the best interest of the students and to keep the school a safe learning environment for our youth.
