CAMDEN - President Barack Obama is coming to Camden to discuss how police are working to build trust with the community.

The White House says Obama will arrive in the impoverished city on Monday.

Obama will meet with law enforcement and young people and hear how the Camden County Police Department works to forge relationships with the community it serves.

Camden was recently designated a "Promise Zone," which the White House says uses federal grants to increase economic opportunity, reduce crime and improve public health, among other things.

The president will discuss how such partnerships and community investments help create opportunity for Americans.
