The layoffs are just the latest consequence of devastating budget strains that have crippled the nation’s cities. As Camden attempts to cut spending to compensate for diminished revenue, the city has begun to execute a plan, approved last month, to cut a fourth of the municipal workforce. Residents fear the cuts will deal a critical blow to the already struggling city.

About 335 municipal workers lost their jobs Tuesday, according to mayor Dana Redd. That includes about half of the police force, and a third of firefighters. Already, Camden is one of the nation’s most dangerous cities: An analysis of recent FBI data ranks it number two.

Layoffs will turn Camden into a “living hell,” according to a police union advertisement in a local paper, AP reports.
