Police patrols at Atlantic City casino parking garages have already resumed despite Mayor Lorenzo Langford’s effort to ban them.
A.C. Prosecutor Ted Housel issued a directive yesterday nullifying Langford’s order, the Press of Atlantic City reports.
Patrols picked up after a second violent carjacking in a casino parking garage, and it didn’t take long for Langford to issue the ban as part of the ongoing dispute he has with the state over the state-run tourism district.
“All this political grandstanding is hurting the taxpayers and hurting the residents,” as A.C. police union president Dave Davidson told WHYY/NewsWorks’ Tom MacDonald yesterday, “so I think there’s multi-level games being played here.”
Patrols resume at 4 p.m. yesterday.
