TRENTON - After successful weekend raids, city officials are hopeful that teamwork between state police and the depleted Trenton Police Department can help make the streets of the state capital safer.

The New Jersey State Police and Trenton Police Department patrolled the Wilbur section of East Trenton, making more than 40 arrests and 160 motor vehicle stops.

Trenton police found themselves in need last year when they had to lay off nearly one-third of their force.

Mayor Tony Mack says that this teamwork will help take back the streets.

"We're being proactive," Mack said. "We're not waiting for something to happen."

The state police and the Trenton Police Department say they are planning more operations for the rest of the city.
