CAMDEN, N.J. (PIX11) — President Obama will travel to Camden, New Jersey Monday to visit with local law enforcement and meet with young people in the Camden community.

The President will tour the Real-Time Tactical Operational Intelligence Center at the Camden County Police Department Headquarters and deliver remarks at the Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center.

The President will hear directly about the efforts of the Camden County Police Department to build trust between their Department and the community they serve.

Camden was recently designated as a “Promise Zone,” which leverages federal grants to increase economic opportunity, reduce crime and improve public health, among other priorities identified by the community.

The President will discuss how these kinds of partnerships and community investments are a crucial part of creating ladders of opportunity for all Americans.
