DENNIS TOWNSHIP, NJ (CAPE MAY) –The New Jersey State Police is seeking the public’s assistance with identifying the suspect(s) who vandalized Trooper Bertram Zimmerman’s memorial in Dennis Township, Cape May County.

On Wednesday, October 7, troopers responded to the memorial located on State Highway 83 when they observed the memorial was defaced. The suspect(s) used white caulk to write a derogatory phrase on the pavers and to deface the front of a granite monument in the center of the memorial.

The State Police unions have offered a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect(s).

Anyone with information is asked to contact Woodbine Station at 609-861-5698. Anonymous tips are welcome.
