Authorities will look to terminate an officer they think is "leaking" information but allow another officer, a supervisor, to remain employed after it was discovered the supervisor was stealing time from the police department.
Westfield Police Chief John Parizeau will allow the wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars by authorizing a "witch-hunt" but look the other way and "start off with a clean slate" in dealing with a thief within his department. The following yellow text is a paragraph from the Memo issued to Westfield Police Department supervisors detailing the Chief's "selective enforcement". He will allow a crime to "slide" but look to terminate the source that leaked the Memo detailing the theft of time.
"For those that may not know, one of the reasons that the hand scanner put in placewas because a small number of personnel were stealing time. They were entering full
shifts in the sign-in book but not working those hours. And not one of those Officers
was a Patrolman. Since I had just started as Chief, I opted not to charge those
personnel even though I had been provided with more than sufficient evidence to do
so. I wanted to start with a "clean slate" and move on."
