Camden police vote on deal to join new force

January 31, 2013 3:42:11 PM PST
Fewer than half of Camden's current city police force will be rehired for the new county run agency.

Camden's FOP voted down a contract agreement today that would have allowed every officer to join the new metro division.

Now, only 49 percent of officers will be considered.

The city blames union leaders for misinforming voting officers, and putting their members at risk of unemployment.
