CAMDEN, N.J. — Gov. Christie came to Camden Wednesday to hail the advent of a new county-run police force in the city as "a transformational moment for both the city of Camden and Camden County — most importantly for the people, the children, the families, and the neighborhoods that they live in."

Christie, an early supporter of the new Camden County Police, which Wednesday replaced the nearly 184-year-old city police department, said it would lead to "better, stronger, more effective, more visible law enforcement."
