Camden City, NJ (The Sun Newspapers)- A veteran detective in the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office has been named a 2023 Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Award nominee.
Sgt. Miguel Rubert has dedicated 25 years to investigating crimes in the Special Victims and Community Outreach and Engagement units and crimes of sexual assault, among other duties.

He was hand picked to serve the office, something Rubert finds humbling. But Chief Robert Ferris believes it is perfect for the veteran detective, which is why he hates to see Rubert go.

“I (wish) somebody could convince him not to retire,” joked Ferris, who faces Rubert’s departure on Feb. 1. 

County Public Information Officer Donna Weaver will miss Rubert’s positive, humble outlook on life. 

“To meet Miguel and see (the other officers) out in the community constantly, at events, at soup kitchens … it is just so inspiring to me,” she said. “I’m going to miss (him) so much.” 

“Sgt. Rubert is a true community hero,” prosecutor Grace MacAulay noted. “He is a man of great empathy and understanding. Every day, he makes a difference in the lives of others. His impact on our community is immeasurable.”
