Camden’s New Police Force Marks First 90 Days
Camden’s new police force is marking the first 90 days on the job by highlighting efforts to reduce gun violence in New Jersey’s most impoverished city.Officials on Tuesday will display more than 60 guns that were seized by the Camden County Police Department since it began in May.
Camden County Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. says the first 90 days have exceeded expectations even though there’s a long way to go.
The county-run police force is designed to get more officers on the street at about the same cost.
Camden had a record 67 homicides last year.
