FPSF Partner Louis Cappelli, Jr. Meets With President Barack Obama

Firm Partner Louis Cappelli, Jr., met with President Barack Obama during his recent visit to Camden where Cappelli serves as County Freeholder Director, to highlight the significant improvements in public safety in Camden due to the efforts of its regional police force.


LouandPresdident.jpgCappelli was joined by the Camden County Police and local officials in welcoming President Obama to the Camden County Police Headquarters this past May. The President chose to visit Camden because of its successful police reform which has reduced crime and improved the relationship between citizens and law enforcement. The City of Camden previously had one of the highest crime rates in the Nation. Now the President calls the City a “symbol of promise.”

As Freeholder Director, Cappelli spearheaded the establishment of this first-of-its-kind regional police force. Camden is now one of the few cities in the Nation to be designated as a Promise Zone which entitles the City to federal grants to help further improve the community. 

“It’s an absolute honor President Obama chose to highlight Camden as an example of how a community can progress through improved relations between law officers and the citizens they protect,” said Cappelli.

Cappelli was recognized this past spring for his contributions as Camden County Freeholder. He was named the 2015 Public Sector South Jerseyan of the Year by the Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs of Rutgers University-Camden.

He has been serving on the Camden County Board of Chosen Freeholders since 2002 and has been Director of the Board since 2006.
