Camden Crime Plummets

Camden Crime PlummetsThings were bad in Camden, N.J., It had the nation’s highest violent
crime rate for cities above 50,000 residents last year. In fact, its
higher murder rate was higher than world-leader Honduras.

And in August 2012 it lost  its police department. Camden County officials dissolved the entire city force and replaced it with a new one unburdened by existing union contracts.

So what has happened? The murder rate has fallen by 22 percent and crime overall is down 15 percent.

More police are on the streets and new technology such as ShotSpotter rooftop monitors have been introduced.

When progressives are   beaten hope blossoms.
