CAMDEN, NJ — The American Civil Liberties Union has sued the Camden County prosecutor and state attorney general, saying they failed to properly oversee the Camden Police Department and a group of allegedly rogue officers.
The Police Department and the five officers, three of whom pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges in the last few months, also were sued. The other two officers are under investigation.
