View Camden County Restaurant and Cafeteria Inspection Reports Online
I’m a mother and a resident and I want to know that the places I’m taking my children to eat are clean. Now, in Camden County, all parents and residents have access to this pertinent information to make informed choices.
The Freeholder Board provides accessible digital Health Department inspections of food serving facilities on our website to strengthen our commitment to protecting the health and welfare of our community. Since the program’s inception, thousands of Camden County residents have visited www.camdencounty.com to check on their favorite restaurant or their child’s school cafeteria.
Camden County’s Health Department inspectors utilize an electronic process to record the information they gather. This has increased the efficiency and effectiveness of the food inspection process by using standardized language and methods to report food protection results. Previously, restaurant inspections were conducted using a paper form process.
The system also reports the standards that the establishment has successfully met as well as any violations noted at the time of inspection. This will make the inspection report clearer for both operators and consumers. By putting our inspection reports online, the inspection process has been streamlined, compliance among restaurants has increased, and most importantly, it is more transparent and easily-accessible for residents.
Using a Tablet PC to complete the State mandated inspection checklist, inspectors report the compliance status of the retail food establishment observed at the time of the inspection in a more efficient manner. The database information of approximately 3,500 venues also lists ownership (local and corporate), mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, food handler information, risk type information, etc.
In addition to the restaurant inspections, reports are also posted for all school cafeterias and other food-handling enterprises in Camden County. Again, as a mother of four children, I can truly appreciate this service because we need to know that when we send our kids off to school in the morning, we’re sending them to an environment that is safe in every way. Whether or not our children’s school cafeteria is safe and sanitary is not something a parent should have to worry about. This is a tool that can either help eliminate that fear, or be used as an instrument of change if it looks like improvements need to be made.
To access the service, visit www.camdencounty.com and click on Restaurant Inspection Reports under the Health Tab. You can then search by the establishment’s name or by municipality. You can also register to receive e-mail alerts when new reports are posted for your favorite restaurants or when the Camden County Health Department issues food-related alerts.
