NJ State Police Helping Trenton Police Force

State Police are providing support to police in New Jersey’s capital city.

State Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa confirmed the aid to The Times of Trenton, though he would provide specifics about what the resources were or how long they would be available. Officials say the effort began last week.

Trenton had to lay off 105 officers last year, or one-third of its police force, and other city employees because of budget cuts. Last month, the Mercer County Sheriff’s and Prosecutor’s Offices announced they would send manpower to augment Trenton’s Tactical Anti-Crime unit, which focuses on drugs, guns, and violent offenders.

The small task forces have periodically gone out to reinforce Trenton police efforts in the city.
