An Atlantic City Police sergeant accused of domestic violence is on modified duty pending the resolution of the case, officials confirmed Tuesday.

Michael P. Camp, 34, turned himself in last week to Egg Harbor Township Police. He faces simple assault and criminal mischief charges, according to documents from the EHT Police Department.

Township police did not release the time, place nor other details about the April 12 incident - which did not involve a weapon - in the interest of protecting the privacy of the victim, who is not related to Camp.

Camp, who also lives in Atlantic City, turned himself into police, according to the documents and property tax records.

Atlantic City Police Chief John J. Mooney III declined to describe what Camp's modified duty entails, but confirmed he had taken Camp's gun in accordance with state Attorney General's Office guidelines on officers involved in an alleged domestic incident.

Any additional disciplinary action will not occur until after the criminal case has concluded, Mooney said.

Meanwhile, Atlantic City's Internal Affairs division will conduct its own probe, as is protocol whenever officers face criminal charges, Mooney said.

Mooney declined to comment on whether Camp has been placed on modified duty or otherwise been disciplined previously during his 11 years on the force.
