Chasing Camden’s Changes - My9 New Jersey

Chasing Camden’s Changes

Posted: Updated:
Camden, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Ronica heads down to Camden, New Jersey to get a first-hand look at what many residents are describing as a "war-zone".  In fact, Camden made a very controversial decision to disband their police department and replace it with a county force.  Since the county took over, it seems like the city is starting to improve.  74 illegal guns have been taken off the street, that's 34 more than this time last year and law enforcement says that by taking guns off the street, they are actually helping to tackle the growing heroin problem in the city by eliminating the option to trade guns for drugs. 

In the studio, Ronica emphasizes that if this change in law enforcement continues to work, that Camden could set an example for other cities around New Jersey to do the same. Bill encourages Mayor Cory Booker to take a close look at the changes being made in Camden because he feels that this could be a good move for Newark and even Trenton as well.

Even more about Camden is discussed as Meg mentions the changes that are happening to the Camden tent city.  The Mayor reached out to her and said they are working on a solution and meeting with the Community Director to discuss their options for the Tent City.  Could this be because of the latest front page posting of Chasing New Jersey's story on The Drudge Report which got over 100,000 views? Bill thinks so!
