NJ Cop Layoffs May Affect Response Times Lays off 25% of Police

NJ Cop Layoffs May Affect Response Times | NBC New York

On Monday, pink slips for 125 cops took effect in Paterson, N.J. It’s not clear if the cuts affected response times for the short-handed force, but NBC New York took to the streets with a police scanner to shadow officers as they grappled with reduced manpower in the neighborhoods of New Jersey’s third-largest city.

A police dispatcher sent officers to 245 East 21stSt. to respond to a burglary at about 7 p.m. Monday. The first officer arrived at the residence within 15 minutes of being dispatched, but the victim said she made the initial 911 call six hours earlier – at 1p.m.
