ORIGINAL: The West Deptford Junior Women's Club donated a $400 camera lens to the police department to be used during investigations on Wednesday night.

The Junior Women's Club took the money for the lens out of its general funds, according to the West Deptford Police Department.

The lens is a 55-250mm telephoto lens for the department's Canon T3 camera.

"The lens will be used as another investigative tool when conducting criminal investigations, such as burglary investigations, narcotics investigations and other crimes against persons and property," West Deptford Det. Sgt. Michael Cramer said in an email. "It was very generous of them to donate the lens to the police department, especially during these financially tough times in municipal government."

Junior Women's Club member Amber McAleer was on hand to make the donation to Police Chief Samuel DiSimone and Cramer.
