Trenton Mayor Asks Christie for $46.4M to Combat Surge in Homicides
Mayor Tony Mack, who laid off 100 police officers in 2011 amid sweeping city budget cuts, sent the letter before a violent weekend in Trenton that included four homicides and brought the city's total for the year to 27. The record for homicides in Trenton is 31 set in 2005.
Trenton Mayor Tony Mack sent a letter to Gov. Chris Christie on Friday asking for the state for $46.4 million in state aid to hire 75 police officers and pay their salaries for four years to battle the surge in violent crime in the state's capital.
