Newark, NJ-- April 27th, 2020 -- Today the Supreme Court of New Jersey hears oral arguments in the case A-15-19Fraternal Order of Police, Newark Lodge No. 12 v. City of Newark (083197). In 2019, New Jersey's Appellate Court ruled that the City of Newark, NJ, had the authority to create the Newark Civilian Complaint Review Board with both subpoena and investigative powers. The Fraternal Order of Police, Newark Lodge Number 12 appealed the court's decision.

U.S. Senate candidate (D) Lawrence Hamm, Chairman of the People's Organization for Progress has been at the forefront of this struggle for the past 35 years. "I hope that the New Jersey Supreme Court will heed the findings of the Appellate Court in the 2019 decision. The establishment and function of the Newark Civilian Complaint Review Board will buttress the right of the citizens of Newark to hold law enforcement accountable to actions that undermine the very nature of police protection of citizens", said Lawrence Hamm. Mr. Hamm is the only U.S. Senate candidate in New Jersey that supports the formation of the Newark Civilian Complaint Review Board.
