From the AP wire:
CAMDEN, N.J. - More changes in the police department responsible for keeping peace in Camden, one of the nation's more crime-ridden cities.
After just seven months on the job, Chief Edward Hargis has announced his retirement.
It's the sixth leadership change in the department in six years.
Officials thought last year that the 44-year-old Hargis might finally be the chief who would last. He has said he will take a job in the private sector. His resignation is effective Sept. 1.
So far in 2008, there have been 32 homicides in the city. Last year, there were 42.
