Haddon Heights Police Department
Haddon Heights Police wanted to make you aware that the Borough and Camden County have a new emergency communications system. When a crisis affects the Borough of Haddon Heights, County, Municipal and Emergency Management Officials must be able to reach residents instantly with warnings, information, and updates. In order to ensure that residents can be contacted quickly and effectively, the Borough and County have begun using Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as the Emergency Notification service provider.

Swift911â„¢ in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. All the calls you receive will have the Caller ID of ‘Borough of Haddon Heights’ or ‘Haddon Heights Police Department’ or Camden County Communications. 

Whether residents need to be informed of a water main break, approaching storm, State emergencies, or other crisis, the emergency notification system is the most efficient way to reach residents with the news. Residents will benefit from increased safety levels and peace of mind, while community leaders see improved response planning, increased efficiency and proficiency. Please visit this link to sign up and receive notifications: http://portalv4.swiftreach.com/portal.aspx?c=202253  or  Click on the icon located on the bottom left of the Boroughs homepage at www.haddonhts.com
