On April 7, 2021, the Delran Township Police Department held a final radio signoff ceremony for our Retiring Chief of Police, Alfonso A. Parente, Jr. after 30 years of dedicated service to the Township of Delran. It has been our honor to have him lead the Delran Police Department as Chief of Police for the last 17 years.
Chief Parente was appointed Chief of Police for the Township of Delran on May 21, 2004. Chief Parente’s law enforcement career began in January 1991 when he was appointed as a full-time police officer in Delran. After graduating from the Camden County Police Academy, he was assigned to the patrol division.
In September 1999, he was promoted to Sergeant and assigned to supervise the evening shift. In 2001, he attended the 204th session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. In May 2002, he was promoted to Lieutenant and assigned as Support Services Commander. Chief Parente is a member of the Burlington County Police Chiefs Association, New Jersey State Chiefs of Police Association, the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the FBI National Academy Associates.
Chief Parente’s dedication to public service is lifelong and began even before his work in Law Enforcement. As a young man growing up he served in both the Endeavor Emergency Squad and the Burlington City Fire Department where he is a life member.
Chief Parente was the longest tenured Chief in Burlington County and as such, he has either promoted or hired most of the current Officers. We would like to express our extreme appreciation for the leadership opportunities he has presented to us and wish him a long, happy, healthy retirement with his family.
The Members of the Delran Police Department are deeply appreciative of everyone who came out to Chief Parente’s final radio call ceremony.
Delran residents can now enjoy an even easier approach to accessing Waste and Recycling Information. We are thrilled to have Recycle Coach fully integrated with the most up to date Public Works information available right on our website at https://www.delrantownship.org/recycle-coach/
The web-app contains information about our residential garbage and recycling services, leaf and branch pickup, paper shredding events and more that helps you utilize these services more effectively. You can even expect communication directly from us should there be any changes to the program, including schedule updates, through the Recycle Coach app, which is a free download available directly on your Apple or Android device!
The “What Goes Where?” search engine makes sorting waste and understanding collection requirements much easier. Residents can now search for specific items like “couch” or “TV” and find out exactly what to do with those unwanted items.
The Recycle Coach app is not only a communication platform, but an educational one as well. Articles on a wide variety of topics like garbage and recycling are available on the Recycle Coach website’s Blog, Recyclepedia, and Resources sections.
We hope you enjoy using Recycle Coach as we move forward in making Delran township Public Works services simple, engaging, and easier to navigate.
