CAMDEN, N.J. — New Jersey Air National Guard helicopter pilots have helped Camden police with day and nighttime patrols for the last eight months or so on a "routine basis," Police Chief Scott Thomson said Tuesday night.

"They can help with lighting up an entire block, whether it's searching for a missing child or a suspect that's just fled from a vehicle," Thomson said. "There's no hiding from that helicopter."
