in 1695, when Old Gloucester County was divided into "Constablewicks,"
a constable was the person who maintained local law enforcement, working in conjunction
with the county sheriff.
position of constable was usually a part-time one, so in addition local citizens
often formed organizations to protect their residents from harm, and to pursue
those suspected of stealing horses, mules, livestock, wagons and other personal
property. On February 7, 1914, an association known as "The Mickleton Mutual
Pursuing and Detective Association," was formed with Herbert Brown as first
president with 196 citizens joining this group.
first East Greenwich Township constable was Hugh Mulvey. The last two constables
of East Greenwich were Christian Miller and Warner "Doc" Bundens. Warner
Bundens became our first police chief in the 1920's, when he was officially appointed
by East Greenwich Township. At that time, deputies were temporary appointments,
East Greenwich Township's
last constable and
first police chief.
Warner Bundens, other Chiefs of Police included Robert Gould, Sr., Tex Novak,
Carl Clement, Bob Madison, Chris Constantino, Alfred Malinowski, and Raymond R.
Miller. As our township grew, so did our police force.
