Trenton Police Reorganization Question (November 2009)
This questions asked city voters if they want to eliminate the position of deputy chief in the police department and instead replace it with a chief of administrative services position. Before there was no head of police because the former ones retired after being demoted, the position still has not been filled after three years. Police officials say the position will be filled regardless of the election. Currently the most senior captain fills in, but he does not have any special powers above the other officers. If this is approved then the captains who want to can take the civil service exam and then a candidate would be selected from that group to fill the position.
The measure was approved.
