Report praises New Jersey State police efforts to curb racial profiling
(12/22/04) TRENTON The latest independent monitors report gives the New Jersey State police high marks in its efforts to curb racial profiling.
The reports were part of a federal order implemented after a Turnpike shooting in 1998. The latest findings show the New Jersey State Police Department has made remarkable progress in its training and supervision methods. Police officials say the vigilance of alert superiors is a big reason for the complimentary report findings.
If the next three reports bring equally high scores, the state police can be dropped from the monitoring program. The reports are issued every six months.
