Camden Rehires 19 Cops, Memo Outlines Dismantling of Agency

May 24, 2011  | 

Nineteen officers rejoined the Camden (N.J.) Police Department on Tuesday, as the police union's president questioned a memo outlining the dismantling of the agency in favor of county law enforcement.

The salaries of the rehired officers will be covered by a COPS grant, which is good for three years.

Last week, a document slipped under the door of John Williamson, president of FOP Lodge 1, apparently gave a suggested timeline for the elimination of the department in favor of a countywide police department.

A new department could be established as soon as June 27, and the Camden PD could be eliminated by Sept. 26.

This is truly sad to know this is going on behind your back. The cities want everything from its officers, but look what you get in return. These city officials really think the county can take on the task of policing this high crime rate city and provide the services that are needed to operate. I don't think so unless they plan on hiring a large portion of the current dept. This really sucks, good luck guys.
