Life in "Progress" City - Camden edition

From the city where there hasn't been a republican in city government............. maybe.............. ever.............

Camden, N.J., consistently ranked among the 10 most dangerous cities in the U.S., is losing its police department in an attempt to shave millions of dollars from its budget.

The city is not becoming a completely lawless land. It will be under the jurisdiction of a new, non-union division of the Camden County Police.
Camden Fraternal Order of Police President John Williamson told that the move is “definitely a form of union-busting.”

Fewer than half of the 460 officers of the Camden Police Department will transfer to the new county division. Laid-off officers will be training their county “Metro Division” replacements, according to Williamson.
