Judge: No Camden referendum on regionalized police force

    Camden voters won’t see a referendum on their ballots asking about a regionalized police force.

    A judge ruled yesterday the referendum is unncessary to replace the city’s police force with a regional one.
    Camden’s police department opposes the move and wanted the referendum, but FOP President John Williamson told CBS3 the department will continue to “keep jumping the hurdles” put in front of it.

    Talks have been in the work since last year to regionalize police service in the county, with minimal support from the departments.
