No long post on how to improve Trenton this week. Instead I just wanted to share this video that the City of Trenton released via their YouTube page about a press conference where Mayor Mack announced the re-hiring of 12 police officers.
Last fall about 100 police officers (one-third of the entire Trenton Police Department) were laid off due to a non-renewal of funding for their positions.
I’m no mathematician but I don’t understand how $3 million over the course of three years only funds 12 police officers per year. Do they each actually have total compensation packages over $83,000?
