The deadliest city in America is disbanding its entire police force and firing 270 cops in an effort to deal with a massive budget crunch.

There have been a staggering 41 homicides in Camden, New Jersey, already this year but the Camden Police Department will be replaced with a force run by the county, which supporters say will cost significantly less and allow more officers on the streets.

Some citizens worry, though that the new officers, many of them from the county police force, won't be prepared for the tough, violent work of patrolling a dense urban city.
