NYPD No Longer Spying on Muslims in New Jersey

Muslim leaders in New Jersey say the state attorney general has assured them that a unit of the New York Police Department that was found to be conducting surveillance of  Muslim groups is no longer operating in the state.

Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa declined to comment following the private meeting Wednesday in Newark, but several attendees confirmed the account separately.

It was the first meeting of a Muslim outreach committee the attorney general established in May. He formed the group after announcing that a state review of NYPD activities found the agency had not violated any New Jersey laws.

The NYPD has defended its surveillance of Muslim businesses, students and groups in New Jersey as legal.

The surveillance angered many Muslims and resulted in a federal suit against the NYPD.
