CJ Griffin, Director of the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was quoted in The Trentonian article, “Oral arguments debate whether state AG may legally expose bad apple cops.” The article discusses the recent Appellate Division arguments in the appeals that several police unions have filed challenging the Attorney General’s recent Directives requiring every law enforcement agency in New Jersey to annually publish the names of police officers who have faced major discipline.

CJ Griffin, an attorney for the National Coalition of Latino Officers and the Law Enforcement Action Partnership, said her clients “really want the court to know that not all police officers agree with the unions’ position. In this case, many of the officers are advocates of transparency.”

Griffin said her clients support transparency and believe “transparency really benefits police officers.”
