    New Jersey Fires An Entire Police Force

    One of America’s most dangerous cities is planning to eliminate its entire police department, laying off all 270 of its cops.

    The city of Camden has been struggling with a budget deficit for years. In 2011, it was named the poorest city in New Jersey. In an attempt to save millions, its officials decided to get rid of the entire city police force. Instead residents of Camden will have to rely on the new police department, which will be operated by Camden County. And here is the secret for saving money – the new Metro Division of the Camden County police will not have collective bargaining.

    “This is a creative way to break a union and break the financial obligations you have to a union,” Scot DeCristofaro, spokesman for the Camden Fraternal Order of Police, told National Public Radio.

    Camden city officials say that the transition is necessary to be able to afford the costs of making the city safer.

    The city of Camden has more crime than 97 per cent of cities in the US. The city hosts 1,846 violent crimes per year, with an average of 37 murders, 73 rapes, 713 robberies and 1,023 cases of assault. In 2004, Camden was named America’s most dangerous city, taking the title away from Detroit.

    “Not too long ago, we [were] considered the worst city in crime in the nation and what do they do? Give up the cops,” said Larry Shaw, who was rallying outside of the police headquarters in protest of the decision. “The cops that are here now are more than just cops. I mean you can talk to them, they know the people and they’re your friends and they protect you.”

    To balance its $26 million budget deficit, the city laid off 167 cops in 2011 without having a replacement program in place.

    With not enough police and too many major crimes, the police department has largely stopped responding to minor crimes such as car accidents, petty thefts and vandalism.

    While Camden city officials hope that the switch to a county patrol unit will give it the means to reduce crime, its 270 laid off cops will struggle to find employment. Less than half can expect to find a job in the county, Fox News reported.

    The new, non-unionized county unit is estimated to employ more officers with the same budget, while also risking taking away the notoriously dangerous city’s local police officers who have experience and knowledge of Camden.

    Seriously, why and in a dangerous town

    Um, why? It's explained in your quote.

    It sucks to be in that city for sure. They at least have coverage by the sheriffs department.

    No, they really couldn't based on the reason to get rid of the department completely.

    Well, they won't be without police. They already have more crime than 97% of the cities in the nation. Removing the city paid department, and having them covered by the county paid department can actually change that. The county has more funds and resources to have a larger and more equipped department.

    I'm actually kinda with F34R on this one. If they have more crime than 97% of American cities, then obviously the city-paid police force just isn't cutting it.
    Thanks to Kwesnoth for the sig!

    He's not a minority and we all know that if you can't cry "racism" in a police brutality case, it's not worth mentioning.

    Meh. He's a s***bag banker working for and soliciting for a bank which deals in credit created out of thin air and thus undermining and devaluing our currency. For once, and judging by the article, the beating was well-deserved. They should have just killed him being as he's part of the elites class working to jackhammer this nation into the ground.
