Camden residents, elected officials march against police brutality

Source: The Courier-Post

CAMDEN - Police officers who patrol this city followed a different path Saturday, joining residents in a march against racism.

Elected officials and religious leaders also took part in the peaceful demonstration, which followed the police-involved death of a Minneapolis man on Memorial Day.

...

Police Chief Joseph Wysocki, who previously described the video showing Floyd's death as "horrific," walked at the front of the march. He helped hold a banner that read "Standing in solidarity."

"We're proud to stand together with the residents we serve!" the police department said in retweeting a video taken during the march.

1. Thank you, I needed to see that.

Only this and Flint have given me any solace from grief and anger these last few days. Thankfully there are still good people around, even some in blue. So sad that way too many LEO are white nationalist types and are getting away with murder in plain sight.

3. So what is Camden doing right?

...
There were 23 homicides in Camden in 2017, the lowest since 1987 and almost half as many as the 44 murders the previous year. Both homicides and non-fatal shootings have declined sharply since 2012, when there were a record 67 homicides in the city.
...
Because of the reorganized force in 2013, the number of cops in the streets has increased and spread throughout Camden. Camden's new police force began patrolling in tandem, speaking with residents, and driving patrol cars. Camden County Police Department hosted several Meet Your Officers events to further engage with residents.
