TRENTON - As crime rages in Trenton, the battle over how to help a troubled police department continues.

A month after cutting more than 100 officers from its payroll, Trenton Mayor Tony Mack announced he will be replacing the city's acting police director after being on the job just five weeks.

Trenton's newest acting police director is Capt. David Armitage, a 27-year veteran of the Trenton Police Department. He replaces Acting Director Christopher Doyle.

The new police director is Mack's fourth in his year-and-a-half term.
