State law enforcement officials in New Jersey have continued their outreach to Muslim leaders.

Wednesday’s meeting was part of an outreach committee formed in the wake of revelations that the New York Police Department conducted secret surveillance of Muslims in New Jersey and elsewhere.

Representatives from several agencies including the New Jersey Attorney general’s office and the head of the State Police, attended the meeting.

Mustafa El-Amin, head of Newark’s Masjid Ibrahim, said the discussion focused on better training for law enforcement on dealing with Muslims and on recruiting more Muslims into law enforcement.

It’s part of an ongoing effort by state officials to repair relations with Muslims after The Associated Press uncovered the NYPD spying program.

The NYPD says its intelligence-gathering program was legal.
