CJ Griffin, Director of the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center, was quoted in the hudsoncountyview.com article, “Internal Affairs Units in Hudson disciplined 36 cops, including 3 terminations, in 2020.” The article discusses the review of the annual summary reports of the Internal Affairs Units of Hudson County law enforcement agencies, which indicates 36 police officers were disciplined, including 3 terminations, in 2020.
