NEWARK: 167 POLICE OFFICERS TO BE LET GO

No final deal could be done and 167 police officers are losing their job in Newark. The announcement became official on Monday. It is the biggest job decrease in that department in over 30 years. Mayor Cory Booker send an e-mail in a last ditch effort to try and revive talks. The union president there turned down that offer, making the layoffs official. The change is expected to save the city $9.5 million.
