It will focus on the state’s response to revelations that the New York Police Department conducted secret surveillance of Muslims in New Jersey.

Muslim leaders and others critical of the NYPD’s activities hope the AG will announce at Thursday’s meeting a formal investigation into the NYPD’s activities in New Jersey, although several privately expressed doubt that would be the result.

Gov. Chris Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker both spoke out against the program at the time.

NYPD officials have defended it as lawful.

A spokesman for the attorney general’s office said the meeting was private and declined to comment.
