Change is Coming

For the first time in 20 years, the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office plans to update the state’s Use of Force policy. The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is hosting a virtual town hall on Thursday, July 16 at 12:30 p.m. to collect ideas and hear what changes you feel are necessary to make the policy just and fair for all New Jersey residents and visitors.

Hosted by the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, the virtual town hall will include an information session to learn about the current policy followed by multiple opportunities to provide feedback on how you feel the policy should change. This meeting is a chance for all residents to directly provide input to a panel of Camden County decision makers to influence changes to the Use of Force policy that all New Jersey law enforcement agencies adhere to.
