This is a second, more comprehensive, article that I sent to you earlier by the former chief of police of Camden New Jersey, J. Scott Thomson. In an era before defunding and disbanding police departments was fashionable, he took the Camden New Jersey Police Department from a failed organization to one that seemingly was able to build trust with and serve his community, lowering crime in the jurisdiction and placing more community-oriented officers on the street. I will be looking for comments from citizens and community leaders about the success of this program. Everything I’ve read so far has come from the chief himself, so if any of you are aware of additional coverage on the subject I’d be happy to know about it.
