TRENTON - Police officers in Trenton are urging the Christie administration to come up with more state aid for the city, before a third of Trenton's police force is laid off.

More than 100 officers, which make up a third of Trenton's police force, received layoff notices. Trenton Mayor Tony Mack says it's up the state to come up with the money, and he's not optimistic.

The mayor says the layoffs will save the city $4 million the first year, but the savings will more than double after two years.
