Debate over police layoffs continue

NEWARK - Newark Mayor Cory Booker has called a press conference tomorrow morning to address the ongoing battle over police layoffs.

Yesterday a judge gave the Fraternal Order of Police and the city until Monday to reach an agreement or 167 Newark officers could be laid off. The city had rejected the union's latest offer to defer one of their July and December paychecks in 2011 and 2012.

The union plans to respond to Mayor Booker after his 11 a.m. press conference.

The city has stated that if layoffs don't happen soon, it will negatively impact its bond rating.
