Daniel Adler, 22, a recently sworn-in Camden County police officer, died after an off-duty motorcycle crash on Route 561 in Cherry Hill on Thursday, authorities said.
Adler's motorcycle collided with a car around 6:30 p.m., police said. The crash remains under investigation.
The Camden County Police Department announced Adler's death on Friday.
"It is with profound sadness that we regret to announce the sudden passing of our very own Officer Daniel Adler," the department wrote in a Facebook post. "Daniel was a devoted colleague, friend and family member who will be forever missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Officer Adler as well as our brothers and sisters at CCPD."
Adler, a Marlton resident, was sworn into the department as a full-time officer on March 18. He previously worked as a part-time officer for several years, Camden County spokesman Dan Keashen told TAPintoCamden.
After police responded to the crash, Adler was transported to Cooper University Hospital for emergency treatment. He later died of his injuries. The 22-year-old driver of the car was taken to Virtua Hospital with minor injuries.
"He was a dedicated police officer with a bright future in front of him," Camden County Police Chief Gabriel Rodriguez told NJ Advance Media. "As an organization we will continue to support his family in this unimaginable period of time and keep them in our thoughts and prayers."
