NYPD, NJ Disagree on Knowledge of Muslim Operation

A New York City police spokesman says authorities in Newark knew details about surveillance of Muslims in the New Jersey city, but police there say he’s incorrect.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne told The Star-Ledger of Newark for a story published Friday that Newark police leaders were fully informed of the NYPD’s activities and that local officers were always involved.

Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio told The Associated Press on Friday that his department knew few details about NYPD’s operations in his city. He also disputed Browne’s claim that Newark police were given a copy of a NYPD report about Muslim surveillance. He says his department does not have such a report.

Browne declined to share the statement with the AP, which has been reporting on the NYPD Muslim surveillance programs.
