Financial troubles in Camden continue. Despite pleas from local residents, one of the most crime-riddled cities in the United States is about to lay off about half of its public safety forces.
Camden City Council approved the layoff proposal unanimously on Thursday in spite of angry arguments from workers and residents to find a way to save the jobs.
Camden has a small tax base and relies on the state for most of its funding. Meanwhile, New Jersey’s budget cuts have gone statewide.
