Change is Here
For the first time in 20 years, the New Jersey Use of Force Policy received an update by the Attorney General’s Office following statewide town halls to collect input. The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office is hosting a virtual town hall on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. to detail and explain the changes and what they mean for 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 new policy, how it differs from the old policy, and how it was revised taking into consideration input from the community.
Residents will have an opportunity to directly provide input to the panel, ask questions, and provide feedback following the presentation.
Comments submitted ahead of the event are being accepted here. In order to ensure we get to as many comments and suggestions as possible during the event, submissions will be accepted through Thursday, April 22.
