Officer Misconduct

Waterford, NJ: (Mar-16-08) Several officers brought charges against the Waterford township, alleging that they lost pay and time on the job after a three-year misconduct probe. The suit sought back pay, employment benefits and attorney's fees for three of the four accused officers. In its defense, the Republican-led township committee stated that it launched the probes after allegations that several officers were having extramarital sex on duty and neglecting their jobs.

Records show that six officers were caught up in the probe; two confessed to related dereliction of duty charges and four won appeals in Superior Court after being found guilty at municipal hearings. The sexual misconduct allegations were found to lack merit in court.

Sources close to the case stated that a settlement had been reached by the parties and that the township committee has announced a $750,000 settlement with several police officers. The agreement will cover back pay, employment benefits and attorney's fees for three of the four accused. [COURIER POST: WATERFORD TO PAY $750,000 TO 3 COPS]
