It’s not often that one city government agency bestows an award on an employee of another in the same city. That’s what happened at Camden City Council’s April 9 regular meeting when the Camden Fire Department (CFD) paid tribute to Camden Police Department (CPD) Patrolman J.R. Scott. CFD Chief Bowers said it was his honor to recognize Scott, who was joined by CPD Chief Joe Floyd.
