I could be wrong, but that looks like Camden Mayor Gen. Winfield S. Price (1927-1931) astride the center motorcycle. I believe this picture was taken on Cooper Street. At far left, in rear, in white hat, George S. Tempest - PMC

Camden Courier-Post - July 31, 1948

THREE MEMBERS OF CAMDEN TRAFFIC squad are shown on new motorcycle mounts which went into service this week. Left to right are Patrolmen Martin Nelson, Frank Wilmot, and Thomas Carr in front of City Hall. Seven of the new $800 vehicles were delivered to the department on Wednesday, Capt. Nathan Petit, squad commander, announced.

On September 5, 1951, Patrolman George Jefferis, veteran motorcycle officer on Camden's police force, became the second Camden policeman to die in the line of duty, when he passed away as a result of injuries suffered when his motorcycle was struck by a car on the Admiral Wilson Boulevard.
