Law enforcement officials say the deadly attack in Jersey City on Tuesday, which left three civilians, one police officer, and the two suspects dead, is being investigated as an act of domestic terror. 

“The evidence points towards acts of hate," said New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal.  "I can confirm that we are investigating this matter as potential acts of domestic terrorism fueled both by anti-Semitism and anti-law enforcement beliefs."

New Strike Force To Combat Health Care Fraud

Aug 13, 2018

A new strike force is bringing federal resources to the New Jersey/Philadelphia region to combat health care fraud.

Assistant U-S Attorney General Brian Benczkowski says the strike force has two purposes.

“To tackle increased waste fraud and abuse within our federal health care programs which cause the cost of Medicare and Medicaid to skyrocket. And second and perhaps more importantly to address the epidemic of prescription drug overdoses and opioid involved deaths ravaging communities across our country including here in New Jersey.”
