Lizz Fiedler is in Camden today, where she’s talking to officers, residents and Mayor Dana Redd about the impending layoffs of police and firefighters. Lizz reports:
Around 9 am this morning dozens of police officers and firefighters who are being laid off gathered at Camden FOP headquarters. The police officers each put down a pair of boots in front of the headquarters in a line to show how many officers are being laid off. The firefighters applauded the police – by the line of boots – then the firefighters walked to the Fire Administration building to turn in their gear. Mayor Redd is having a presser at City Hall at noon to talk about the lay offs.
