The original plan to layoff dozens of firefighters was avoided and a tentative agreement with the Newark Superior Officers Association has stopped planned demotions of approximately 100 high ranking police officers.

Mayor Booker has said in the past that the layoffs were needed in light of the city’s fiscal crisis.
