CAMDEN, N.J. — Camden city and county officials met Monday to discuss assisting Camden police — possibly with increased involvement by the county Sheriff's Office and Park Police — when the city lays off up to half of its law enforcement officers Jan. 18.

The New Jersey State Police, which maintains a presence in the city, will monitor the situation in Camden and send in more troopers if needed, said Paul Loriquet, spokesman for the state Attorney General's Office.
