HOBOKEN -- Mayor Dawn Zimmer released the results of a state police audit Monday, which calls for 46 to 56 police officers to lose their jobs and for the city to reevaluate the position of public safety director. The report also asked the city to consider extending the work hours of the officer and using civilians for certain functions within the police department.
The recommendation would be for 46 to 56 police officers to be cut, roughly one third of the force.
Because of budget issues, the city asked the state to do audits of the police and fire departments last year. Zimmer just received the final draft of the police audit.
