AG Comes To Camden To Address Spike In Violence

New Jersey’s state attorney general is coming to Camden Thursday to talk about how to address a spike in violence in a city that has long suffered from problems with crime.

The city of fewer than 80,000 has had 16 murders since Oct. 1, prompting one city council member to call for the National Guard to be sent in to help.

Camden has a longstanding crime problem. The often-criticized annual crime rankings released this week by CQ Press found the city to be the nation’s second-most dangerous.

Some officials have said that things have gotten worse this year since half the police force was laid off in January.

Mayor Dana Redd’s office says she’ll have an announcement after her meeting with Attorney General Paula Dow.
