Christie Signs Law Requiring Out-of-State Police to Get Nod Before Surveillance

In response to NYPD spying in New Brunswick


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a law Monday to require out-of-state law enforcement agencies to notify officials here before conducting surveillance, a bill that was prompted by the New York Police Department spying on Muslims in the state.

The NYPD work in New Jersey was exposed when a New Brunswick apartment building superintendent told police about an apartment containing NYPD radios. It turned out to be a safe house for undercover officers coordinating the surveillance.
