CJ Griffin Quoted in Article Regarding Police Union Opposition to Transparency
CJ Griffin, Director of the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was quoted in NJ.com article, “N.J. police unions say plan to name disciplined cops will place a ‘scarlet letter' on officers.” The article discusses challenges by several police unions to the Attorney General’s recent directives that require disclosure of the names of all police officers who receive major discipline.
