The members of the Camden’s polce force are slated to participate in a election Thursday regarding a contract to allow them to join a new police department en masse.
Camden is in the works of disbanding its force and substituting it with one run through the county government.
The city of 77,000 is surrounded by the most needy and crime-ridden cities in the nation. Last year, it had a record-setting 67 homicides.
Officials state that they have the ability to put more officers on the street by carrying in a new department. On the other hand it would limit benefits such as shift differentials and longevity bonuses for the officers.
