They brought in the State police. Then when that was up, they disbanded the Camden police, changed the name and rehired. The budget went up not down. The original police were not that great at their job to put it nicely.

A lot of things go on in Camden that don't show up on statistics. Crime is going down on paper. But no one in their right mind would drive through Camden let alone walk through it.
