Mark Chase is a former First Assistant Prosecutor for The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.  As First Assistant, Mark was responsible for the day to day operations of the Prosecutor’s Office. He oversaw a staff of over 250 employees. His staff included 75 Assistant Prosecutors and more than 100 Detectives and Agents.   His public service career began as an intern when he joined the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office while still in law school.

He received a Bachelor’s Degree in American History from Connecticut College in 1991 and graduated from Widener University School of Law in 1995, where he ranked in the top 9 percent of his graduating class. He received a L.L.M. in Tax Law from Temple University School of Law in 2002. In 1999, he entered private practice with the firm of Brandt, Haughey, Penberthy, Lewis & Hyland out of Moorestown, NJ. In his time in private practice, he specialized in litigation gaining invaluable knowledge about how the other side operates.

In 2000, the pull of public service proved too much, and he returned to the Prosecutor’s Office. He was named the Deputy First Assistant, and received important assignments to multiple units in the Prosecutor’s Office. As his experience grew, so did his responsibilities. For many years he was the section chief of the Special Prosecutions Unit, responsible for white collar crimes and criminal behavior committed by public officials, including law enforcement officers.

Mark is recognized as an expert in Police Internal Affairs and the Use of Force. At the request of the Attorney General’s Office, he educated others throughout the state on topic of proper police conduct and behavior.  Mark has authored or co-authored a number of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office policies. Particularly impressive, Mark was responsible for drafting the SWAT policy and the policy that allowed for the use of Narcan by police. Mark was also instrumental in drafting the Taser policy that set a standard of practice where Police officers were required to use less than lethal force when and where warranted.

In 2005 and 2006, Mark was the recipient of the Prosecutor’s Service Award for service beyond the requirements of routine duty.   In 2015 he received the Chairman’s Award from Philadelphia/Camden HIDTA, for advancing the use of Narcan which helped to save over 300 lives in Camden County.
