Gov. Murphy announces $7 million investment to help law enforcement end gun violence
Gov. Phil Murphy has announced a $7 million investment to help law enforcement put an end to the gun violence.
Murphy announced the investment outside the Paterson Police Department. Murphy says the money will help local police departments trace guns by funding state-of-the-art spotter technology and license plate readers.
Another $8 million will go toward grassroots and community groups that resolve arguments.
The news comes one week after 18-year-old Robert Cuadra was struck by a stray bullet in Paterson and killed while police say he was getting groceries for his grandmother.
