TRENTON - Trenton Mayor Tony Mack's plan to reorganize the city's police department has been put on hold after causing controversy.

Under the plan, units like anti-crime, drug, tactical and vice would be disbanded to increase foot patrols around the city.

The mayor says the plan stems from residents saying they want to see an increased presence of police on the streets.

Prosecutors have expressed serious concerns over the plan, which has kept the plan from going into effect.
