TRENTON - Gov. Chris Christie's administration announced today that the NYPD did not violate any state laws when they spied on Muslim businesses, mosques and student groups. The announcement comes after a three-month review of the issue.
"We remain committed to striking the appropriate balance of ensuring the safety of our citizens through vigilance in fighting terrorism, while not undermining the public's confidence in how we approach that mission," says a statement from Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa. Chiesa met with Muslim leaders in Trenton today to discuss the findings of the review.
Chiesa says state law enforcement will also meet regularly with the NYPD to exchange information about their findings.
